Fidelitas Red Mountain Optu Vertical Tasting

Charlie Hoppes is celebrating 25 years of Washington winemaking.

I have to say thank you to Charlie Hoppes and his friendly staff, for sharing these wonderful Optu wines from the Fidelitas wine library. This was a truly special treat. Optu Red Wines are the signature red blend of Fidelitas. The wines I tasted are no longer available. A couple of the newer vintages may be available in Magnum format - contact the winery for details.

It pays to "Like" Washington wineries on Facebook. Today I visited Red Mountain for a vertical tasting of Fidelitas Optu red wines. The only way I knew about this special, one time tasting, was because I "Liked" Fidelitas on their Facebook page.

I suggest you stop by the Fidelitas website and Fidelitas facebook page to discover the wonderful upcoming events Fidelitas is hosting in honor of Charlie's 25 Years of winemaking.

Some of my lucky friends are going to enjoy the benefits of my Red Mountain visit today.
