A Weekend of Washington Wine - First Weekend of May


Today I will be writing to catch up on all the delicious wine I experienced this weekend.

Briefly, this is what went down.

Checking the glasses before I begin pouring.
Friday – AntoLin Cellars Sensory Tasting
I conducted a private wine tasting and sensory class lunch, featuring AntoLin Cellars Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. Review soon.

Ed Luebben at the Wine Incubators.
Saturday – Walla Walla Spring Barrel Tasting
Went Walla Walla wine tasting with my friend, winery Architect Edward Luebben. We visited Leonetti Cellars, Corvus Cellars, Cavu Cellars, aMaurice Cellars and Garrison Creek Cellars. Review soon.

Virtual tasting at L'Ecole Winery - it was an actual tasting for us.
Sunday- L'Ecole 41 Perigee Vertical Tasting
My friend Ben Simons, wine blogger at Vinotology.com, joined me for a vertical tasting at L'Ecole No 41. This was a virtual and an actual tasting at the winery. They poured from their library the 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Perigee red wine. This was an honor, and in honor of the Perigee Moon, when the moon's orbit is closest to the earth. Review soon.

What a great start to the month of May.
