Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Woodinville Wine Country Passport Weekend

Just got back from the Woodinville Passport Weekend. It was a great event, despite some mishaps. A tour bus bottomed out in DeLille's driveway causing all kinds of havoc and distress among wine tasters whose vehicles were trapped in the parking lot and wine tasters who couldn't get in. There were the usual dented fenders and one lady somehow manage to drop her glass (the wine , the wine!) causing a major massive injury to her friend, all the while telling everyone she can't stand blood. Actually they were great gals and loads of fun.

I tried to focus on the wineries that are not normally open to the public. DeLille, Betz, Januik and Novelty Hill were great as usual, but the most interesting tastings were at the smaller, newer wineries such as Edmonds, Cuillin, Des Voignes, Stevens, Chatter Creek, Saint Paulia, Covington and lots of others.

Tune in most days this week to read about exciting new wineries and great wines from great winemakers.
