It’s only Monday, and we’re already looking forward to some good wine times on the weekend. On Saturday, we’re going to a wine tasting at our favorite neighborhood wine bar, Vino Bello, to taste wines from Saviah Cellars and enjoy the blues music of J.D. Hobson. (This amazing musician gets down on vocals, guitar, harp and stompbox! We plan to go to Vino Bello whenever he is playing the blues. Don’t worry, Michelle, we also plan to visit frequently, regardless of who is entertaining.)
We didn’t get a chance to visit Saviah Cellars when we went to eastern Washington in April. But we are planning to stop by in September. We discovered Saviah’s 2005 The Jack at Vino Bello’s earlier this year, and it’s become our wine of choice there. Just ask Jake! (I’ve blogged about The Jack, Jake and Vino Bello before, and no doubt will again!) So we’re really looking forward to tasting some other Saviah wines on Saturday.
Our weekend fun will continue on Sunday, down the road in Woodinville at Woodhouse Family Cellars, where the Big Boy Merlot, the 2002 Maghee is available again. It’s going to go fast, so we’ve put in our order already! (I’ve also blogged about the Maghee before, and no doubt will again, along with other old-world-style wines from Woodhouse Cellars!)
