It was just about a month ago that I thought I needed to see more of Washington State. I’ve lived here all my life, and love it, but I’m always flitting off around the world and giving short shrift to Washington. I was musing over Labor Day weekend, with a glass of Washington red in hand, and I started thinking about all the wineries in the state. When I started doing a little research, I found out there were over 900 wineries in the state, and I decided to make it a quest to visit all of them.
Now, obviously, this is going to take some time. I’ve started with two urban wineries in Tacoma, and am working with a fabulous PR representative to set up a visit to Whidbey Island. With a few more visits under my belt, I’ll be able to style a format for content here on the blog, and I hope to launch a companion podcast. It’s still a bit down the road, but I hope you’ll come along for the ride – and along the way, there will be plenty of tasty sips, bits, and bites.
To help celebrate the launch of the site, and to give my quest a great kick off, Total Wines & More in Lynnwood is hosting a wine tasting for readers and fans. It will be on October 19th, from 6-8 pm. We’ll have some nice cheese to pair with it, some lively conversation, and some wine education. Wine tasting will start at 6:30 pm. Also joining us will be friends from Discover the Pacific Northwest, a new website focusing on wine, beers, and spirits of the region.
Space is limited, so please RSVP here. This is a 21 and over event.
Hope to see you there!
