We have been fans of Lauren Ashton Cellars since late 2012, when we met winemaker and owner Kit Singh at numerous wine events and tasted his lovely wines. So we were delighted to receive a shipment of two stunning new releases — 2020 Cuvée Meline and 2015 Proprietor’s Reserve Cuvée. Most importantly, these wines are available at the Lauren Ashton Cellars Tasting Studio in Woodinville as well as online. Read on for more.
Every year, we love to share WA Wine fun facts about the wonderful wine industry in Washington state. Therefore, we hope you enjoy this updated 2020 version, courtesy of Washington Wine. First, Cabernet is still King in this state (29% of crop), followed by Chardonnay (16%). Riesling, Merlot and Syrah round out the top five, which altogether equate to more than 80% of the crop. Second, Cab Franc received the highest average price per ton. Overall, for four years now, red varieties account for nearly 60% of the total WA crop.
So many incredible things are happening at DeLille Cellars right now, it’s hard to decide where to begin. From a gorgeous milestone wine release to a new tasting lounge to Washington Wine Month specials, we want to jump in the car and head right over there. But let’s start with the wine. Above all, this epic Washington winery recently released the spectacular DeLille Harrison Hill 2018, 25th vintage.
Taste Washington 2021 isn’t an in-person event because of the pandemic. But there is plenty to celebrate this month, and so much Washington wine to love. We recently enjoyed six bottles, samples provided for Taste Washington Wine Month. See below for details about these wines, in addition to information about Taste Washington to Go and Taste Washington at Home. These special events underline the creativity of Washington State Wine and Visit Seattle. They pull out all the stops to make this event an epic experience.
