Super Bowl Sunday brings more than just football to Washington wine enthusiasts. Several Woodinville wineries are offering free tastings and other activities to celebrate the big day.
Woodhouse Family Cellars offers a “SuperBowl Sunday Special” of complimentary tasting all day and the unveiling of their new Kennedy Shah Blend, La Vie en Rouge. The name honors the newest member of the Woodhouse winemaking team, the charming Jean-Claude Beck, whose motto is “No boring wines.” We’ve tasting this fine blend and really enjoyed it.
Alexandria Nicole Cellars will have the game on and will offer two special “football wine flights” of two-ounce pours during the game – Pittsburgh Steelers Flight ( 2005 Syrah, 2006 Quarry Butte and 2006 Merlot) and Arizona Cardinals Flight (2007 Viognier, 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, and 2007 Shpherds Mark).
DiStefano Winery is also offering free tastings and discounts on selected wines all day on “Superbowl Sunday.” Two of their family wines (both are reds) – 2004 Domenica and 2004 Donna Maria — are reduced to $19.99 from $27.99 for one day only.
