Busy wine weekend ahead!

This weekend is going to be one of the busiest wine weekends we’ve had in a long time. It all starts on Friday night, when we head to Woodinville to see Jarrod Boyle, winemaker extraordinaire of Alexandria Nicole Cellars. The winery’s Woodinville tasting room is having a release party, and we’re looking forward to it. Hopefully the commute won’t be too dreadful on a Friday night!

On Saturday, we return to Woodinville for St. Nick’s weekend, where we plan to stop by some rarely open wineries such as Baer Winery and DeLille Cellars, in addition to visiting our old favorites Woodhouse Family Cellars and Columbia Winery.

Then it’s off to Portland, for the first time in almost ten years. It’s a brief business trip, and we plan to stop by a few tasting rooms too. Thanks to those of you who e-mailed your suggestions to me! It’s a long list, but we’re not there for long!

I plan to write about all of it, so be sure to come back and read more!
