Now here’s an excellent reason to raise your glass and cheer! DeLille Cellars has opened its new, unique three-level tasting room and retail tower, with an outdoor patio, rooftop deck and views of Mt. Rainier. We recently had a first-hand look at the new digs, located at the former Redhook brewery in Woodinville’s Hollywood District. Check it out for yourself! And there’s no better time than now, when you can find holiday deals on DeLille’s stellar wine. Read on for details!
We’ve said this before, and we’re sure we will say it again. Talented winemaker Kit Singh at Lauren Ashton Cellars consistently crafts high-quality Washington state wine. We have enjoyed Kit’s impressive lineup from the day he and his wife Riinu opened their Woodinville winery ten years ago. This tradition continues in two October releases, which we were fortunate enough to sample last week, courtesy of the winery: 2017 Chenin Blanc and 2014 Proprietor’s Cuvée. They both are excellent. Here are the details.
Unfortunately we couldn’t make the event this year, but the winery kindly sent us four bottles to sample. And thanks to Snooth, we also viewed the video of Robbie talking about how much fun he has making wine. Indeed, Robbie’s passion as a winemaker shines in each glass of his food-friendly wines.
You can read our thoughts about the four wines below. But first, it’s important to note Murrieta’s Well credentials. It is one of California’s original wineries, propagated in 1883 with vineyard cuttings from Chateau Margaux and Chateau d’Yquem in France. The Livermore valley winery is owned by Philip Wente of Wente Vineyards, the country’s oldest, continuously operated family-owned winery. You can read more of their history here.
And now, the wines.
Simply put, we love Bordeaux wines. The real deal from France. The new-world style in North America. Regardless, an impressive Bordeaux blend is high on our list of wines that please our palates.
