Revelry on Red Mountain 24-25 May 2014

Experience the wonder of Washington wines on Red Mountain.

Red Mountain is a gem of an AVA. Blessed with wonderful sun exposure, perfect soil for growing some of the best wine grapes in the world and a magnet for attracting talented winemakers. This translates to wines of great depth and character. Take this opportunity to learn and experience Red Mountain. You are being called to Revelry on Red Mountain.

View from Col Solare Winery.

The annual Revelry on Red Mountain is hosted at Col Solare Winery. Prepare to be dazzled by the fabulous Washington wine, food and stunning views. Tickets are on sale now.

Sunset at Revelry on Red Mountain.

A spectacular sunset, panoramic views of the valley below, savory delights and the warmth of eastern Washington will raise your spirit and please your palate.

Last year marked the fourth Revelry on Red Mountain I attended. Not only were some of the best Washington wines poured on Saturday, but Sunday included a new addition to this weekend, a Red Mountain vineyard tour and lunch.

Walking Vineyard Tour

The walking vineyard tour is continued this year. Below are photos from last years Red Mountain Vineyard Tour. This was a very special and enlightening activity for me. It surprised me how different Red Mountain looked from each of the vineyards we visited. Of course delicious wine was poured at each vineyard, wine made from grapes from that vineyard. Very cool.

We began our tour at Klipsun Vineyard.

Our next stop was Kiona Vineyard and Winery.

Warm welcome to Ciel du Cheval Vineyard.

Lunch at Fidelitas Winery.

Final stop at Hedges Family Estate.

This is my favorite Washington wine event.

Revelry on Red Mountain continues to expand the Red Mountain AVA wine experience. Saturday night is Revelry on Red Mountain, enjoy wine, food and entertainment. Sunday morning enjoy the vineyard walking tour and lunch. Not satisfied yet? A special Winemakers Dinner was added this year to enhance your eastern Washington wine enjoyment.

Review: Sho Chiku Bai, Unfiltered Sake

Last month in Seattle, I purchased a bottle of Nigori sake at Uwajimaya. Uwajimaya is one of the largest Asian grocery retailers in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve been visiting Uwajimaya for almost 40 years. When I was much younger, I’d buy model ship and plane kits, Japanese comic books (manga) and I never left without at least one steaming Humbow in hand. Today I buy the manga for my son; while I still enjoy the tasty steamed Humbows, now I never leave without at least one bottle of Sake in hand. Uwajimaya has a terrific selection of imported sake. This most recent visit, I left with a bottle of Sho Chiku Bai Nigori sake. Nigori sake is generally the sweetest of all sakes, with a fruity nose and a mild flavor, making a great drink to complement spicy foods or as a dessert wine. Typical sake is usually filtered to remove grain solids left behind after the fermentation process; however Nigori sake remains unfiltered, resulting in a cloudier beverage. Before serving, the bottle must

Spirit Review: Ole Smokey Tennessee Moonshine White Lightnin' @OleSmoky

Today I have crossed the line from wine to spirits. At 100 proof the Ole Smokey Tennessee Moonshine is definitely turning up the volume (ABV 50%). "Moonshine, white lightning, mountain dew, hooch, and Tennessee white whiskey are terms used to describe high-proof distilled spirits, generally produced illicitly...The word "moonshine" is believed to derive from the term "moonrakers" used for early English smugglers and the clandestine (i.e., by the light of the moon) nature of the operations of illegal Appalachian distillers who produced and distributed whiskey." Source Wikipedia My family is no stranger to Moonshine.  That is, my great-grandfather and grandfather were not strangers. Evidently the family occasionally produced their own spirits on their Oregon ranch. My grandfather told me about his younger brother getting into his dads stash with predictable results. Grandmother also told me stories about midnight runs and secretive deliveries d

A Special Oregon Pinot Noir with Eastern North Carolina Inspired Ribs #OTBN #winePW 10

Open That Bottle Night - A great excuse for a Wine Pairing Weekend.  February 28th was Open That Bottle Night - I selected a bottle of wine I helped blend using barrel samples of Pinot Noir from R. Stuart winery in McMinville, Oregon. I was saving this bottle for a special occasion and knew it was likely time to open and drink. I hoped it had improved. "Blending wine is no task for mere mortals."   - William Pollard Jr.  Our Wine Pairing Weekend group decided Open That Bottle Night would be an appropriate occasion to pair our selected bottle of wine with something special as well. After some consideration, I decided North Carolina ribs would likely pair well with my special bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir. For this post I'll review the wine first, then provide the recipe, and wrap up with the results of this wine + food pairing. *Note: What is Open That Bottle Night? Wife and Husband columnists Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher invented Open That Bottle
