Our favorite Washington white, DeLille Cellars Chaleur Blanc, is celebrating an historic milestone this year — its 25th vintage. Indeed, DeLille Cellars is releasing this classic white blend today at a special price of $25 through July 14. After that date, this acclaimed white wine will retail for $35. Adorned with a commemorative label, 2019 Chaleur Blanc is a beautiful blend of Sauvignon Blanc (69%) and Sémillon (31%) crafted in the tradition of Bordeaux white wine. We highly recommend it, and here’s why.
Warmer weather means it’s time to sip rosé on the deck or patio, lakeside, oceanside or poolside. And Lauren Ashton Cellars 2019 Rosé is a gorgeous start to the season.
First, the latest release of Lauren Ashton Rosé exemplifies the high quality of the 2019 rosés in Washington state.
Second, we have enjoyed this rosé, vintage after vintage, but the addition of Cinsault in 2019 brings some light spices to the mix, so it’s our favorite.
A record-breaking 8,479 local, national and international visitors attended Taste Washington last year. Make sure you’re one of them this year, March 19-22 in Seattle.
Tickets go on sale Jan. 17, and there is a lot to experience at what we like to call The Super Bowl of Wine Events in Washington state. It’s the country’s largest single-region wine and food extravaganza.
You don’t want to miss out on what Forbes calls “an epic party that lasts for days.” We go every year and always look forward to the explosion of tastes, fun and education during the four-day event.
Here are the details for Taste Washington 2020. We hope to see you there!
Bayernmoor Cellars is a new, small winery that opened up recently in Stanwood in western Washington. First, attorney Larry Harris and his family established a six-acre vineyard of Pinot Noir. Next, other grapes were sourced from premium Washington vineyards Destiny Ridge, Otis, Klipsun and Celio.
The family decided to focus on European-style wines that showcase the beautiful grapes grown here, and asked pioneer Washington winemaker Brian Carter to join their team.
Recently, we were fortunate to taste three lovely Bayernmoor wines: 2018 Rosé, 2017 Chardonnay and 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon.
