SEPTEMBER 20, 2008


A nice group of 26 people enjoyed an informative tour of the 9 acre hillside vineyard, mostly planted to pint noir, and a fully interactive discussion of all wine making topics in the winery. Partner and winemaker Randy Bonaventura answered all our questions, and explained his winemaking philosophy. Then we had snacks on the lawn, and tasted through their entire portfolio. Skagit County is a growing wine region, and we are the beneficiaries.
