Washington State Wines

Saturday, July 20th

Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar

 Most of the wine grape growing areas in Washington are desert regions.  Desert is officially defined as any area that receives less than 9 inches of rain a year.  What this means is that Washington State Vintners have become experts at irrigation both above and underground.

 Turns out deserts are great places to grow vines.  Vines do not produce quality wines in damp fertile soil, also they like sunshine and warmth during the day and coolness at night.  There’s a trifecta for desert wines right there.

 Also, Washington has long played second fiddle to California, so maybe they try harder.

 Price is $20.  Please call or see the front desk to place reservations.  802 253-5742.  Doors open @ 4:00.  I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed.  People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
