OK Folks, this is a long time coming and I will be editing this post in the coming days.
We have initial plans to have our first ever CT Washington Release party during Spring Release Weekend in Walla Walla, first weekend in May.
This will be a very special weekend for me and many others on our CT forum. The 2016 CT Washington wines were made in memory of our dear friend Drycab, and while we will celebrate the great persona Brad was, we will also take time to celebrate three vintages of amazing wines made for the CT community by our friends at Rasa Vineyards (thanks Pinto and Billo), and the vineyard owners who have so graciously allowed us to have amazing fruit to work with (thanks Steve & Mary Robertson, Hugh & Kathy Shiels).
We are still planning out the details, but here is some of what you can expect;
- Vineyard tours of SJR Vineyard with Steve and Robertson...Explore the history of The Rocks District of Milton Freewater, take a time journey of the Missoula floods, kick some cobbles, and learn everything you never knew about the MHT pruning and training approach pioneered by Delmas.
- Release and Pickup of CT Washington 2016 wines (there are still some available, and you'll curse yourself later if you don't get some! I've tasted barrel samples, and they are outstanding!)
- Release Party at Rasa Vineyards with food, wine, fun, and ChrisInSunnyside playing bagpipes for entertainment
- Special Release Party only availability of Library releases of CT Washington Wines (2012, 2014), Rasa, and Delmas wines.
I'll be updating this post regularly as we work out the details, but I wanted to get this out there for everyone to see and maybe add to your calendars. Stay tuned!
