Grand Re-opening of Wilbur Tasting Room
News from Lake Roosevelt Wine Company!
They will be celebrating the Grand Re-opening of the Wilbur Tasting Room with The Great Whitestone Wine Sale and Tasting Event on March 10&11, 2018 from noon to 5pm.
From the winemaker himself…..
As part of the Grand Re-Opening, we will be officially releasing three wines; namely, our 2014 Merlot, 2014 Cabernet Franc, and our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. Free tastings of these wines will be provided. With our special Grand Re-Opening pricing and the flavor of these wines, we are confident you will be going home with cases of these wines,
Plan to spend the afternoon with us. We will be doing wine tasting of the current releases. Josh will be at the grill cooking hamburgers ($6.00 including a bag of chips) and bratwurst ($6.00 including a bag of chips). Judy will have a pot of our famous “Whitestone White Chili” (made with chicken) ready to serve ($6.00 a bowl). Walter will be greeting all with tall tales when not running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off (where do you think the chicken came from for the chili?)
And more great news….
Our 2014 Merlot continues our vineyard’s tradition of producing some of the best Merlot wine in the entire state of Washington and the world … it received a Silver Medal at the San Francisco Wine Competition, the largest competition of American Wines in the World.
This year there were 6,850 wines entered into the competition. In the under $40 categories for Merlot wine, 214 Merlot wines received medals. Of this total, only 13 Washington State Merlot wines received medals … only four received golds. Our 2014 Merlot received the SILVER MEDAL.
