Michael is going to pour FANTASTIC wines from Wilridge Vineyards. They are a winery I met whilst walking through Pike Place Market this summer. So now we have them in our house to show off their delicious portfolio from Washington.
Wilridge is a small family vineyard, orchard, winery and distillery operated in the European tradition. Founded in 1988, Wilridge continues to be the oldest operating winery in Seattle. In 2007, Wilridge planted its certified Organic and Biodynamic Estate Vineyard on Naches Heights near Yakima, Washington. Wilridge continues to produce award-winning wines.
WILRIDGE IS THE "GREENEST WINERY™" IN WASHINGTON AND IS PROUD TO BE THE FIRST CERTIFIED ORGANIC, BIODYNAMIC AND SALMONSAFE VINEYARD AND WINERY IN THE STATE.
@ Humble Vine Saturday, November 17th 4pm
Crisp and dry with strong tannins and acid, unoaked to enhance the bright crisp citrus flavors with a long, complex finish.
Pinot Grigio $19
Bright, clean, fresh tropical and citrus fruit flavors with crisp acidity and a lovely finish that lingers and changes. Pairs well with creamy, cheesy, shellfish and pasta or all by itself on a warm summer day.
A deep purple hue wraps the aromas of blueberries, stewed boysenberry, allspice, and white pepper. The finish is long and electric. This 100% Grenache is a Gold Medal winner from Seattle Wine Awards.
Cherry, plum and tomato flavors dominate with sub tones of leather, tobacco, vanilla, and clove. This wine has firm tannins and crisp acidity that pairs well with roasts and grilled anything. Our Tempranillo is aged at least 18 months is used French oak barrels.
Estate Nebbiolo $35
This is rich, warm, subtly spicy, layered with warm pie-crust, berry compote, and wood smoke notes. The fruit palate is deep and varied: blackberry pie, Kirsch, black plums, blueberry, stewed raspberries, and currants. There’s a hint of aged Balsamic, a trace of gunpowder, and a whiff of cigar box. Firm tannins and crisp acid soften into a long, silky finish.
Estate Zweigelt $38
Austria's most widely planted red varietal, Zweigelt is well suited to the higher altitude and proximity to the Cascade Mountains of Wilridge Vineyard. This was a chance discovery that has become a unique and amazing experience from our own organic, biodynamic vineyard in Naches Heights.70 cases produced.
Estate Pinot Gris Dessert $22
This Pinot Gris is made into a rich and sweet dessert wine. Perfect for enjoying with pastries, pies, and cheeses.
