Come visit us at our tasting room at 1959 J.B. George Rd in Walla Walla. Our new winery building is also complete, and we completed our first full harvest in our own building with the 2011 vintage! Our wines will only continue to get better with full control of every aspect of the winemaking process.
THE LATEST NEWS:
We are thrilled to be releasing this new wine to our mailing list and wine club members in March. The 2011 Conjurer is a gorgeous blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, and we think it provides one of the greatest values in Washington wine. Not to mention, the new label is pretty darn cool as well. Thanks to NPH for lending us his image for this wine...An iconic face on an iconic wine!
We want to thank the loyal members of our Wine Illusionist Society wine club. Through their loyal support, and thanks to consistently wonderful press and scores, we have been selling through our wines as quickly as ever.
In addition, sign-ups for the wine club have dramatically increased over the past year, making it harder and harder for us to consistently satisfy demand—a wonderful problem to have. Hopefully we can keep the wine club open for at least one more year before we have to switch to a waiting list or allocation system; but at the rate at which new members have been joining, that may not be possible.
As we have said before, we have never been more excited about a vintage than the 2010's; but with harvest in full swing, and near perfect grape growing conditions translating into unbelievably intense, flavorful fruit, we are already looking forward to the day when we can sit down and open the 2012's and we can't help but wonder if 2012 won't surpass even the 2010's.
This has been an incredible year for the winery and we are extremely excited not only about this year's vintage, but also about the long term future of the winery. We are deeply grateful to all of our supporters; but especially to the members of the Wine Illusionist Society for all their encouragement and loyalty. We will continue to try to exceed your expectations. Keep an eye on your emails, as we are working on trying to put together something special for Spring Release Weekend for members of the wine club.
