The Hotel Bellwether and Lighthouse Grill is bringing Gordon Estates, Long Shadow Vintners, and a robust selection from Nobel Wines to the Compass Wine Room on Thursday, November 15, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Combining the culture of Louisiana and the winemaking traditions of Washington, Boudreaux Cellars produces wines using old school techniques and grapes sourced from the oldest vineyards. This family-owned, beautiful stone winery is located deep in the Cascade Mountains in Leavenworth. Owner, Rob Newsom, nicknamed Boudreaux after the colorful Louisiana character widely known for his keen sense of adventure and good humor, is a multitalented winemaker producing some of the best handcrafted wines in the Northwest in a rustic alpine environment.
Founded in 2003 in Walla Walla by wine visionary Allen Shoup, Long Shadow Vintners is based on the idea of bringing a cadre of premier winemakers together, giving them access to Washington’s best grapes while outfitting a winery to accommodate this diverse group’s exacting cellar specifications. Named for the “long shadows” cast by the industry luminaries who travel to Washington to make wine and shed light on the Columbia Valley’s world-class vineyards.
Come again in December for our Premier Wine Tasting social and take in the beauty of the season during our annual Holiday Tree event and featuring the wineries Three Rivers Winery and The Four Graces Winery on December 13, 2018.
Each of these casual wine tasting events in our Compass Wine Room will feature at least two wineries offering their best vintages for tasting and purchase. Guests are treated to a unique opportunity to taste northwest-produced, limited-production wines that are also offered at special prices for purchase that evening. As you sip and savor, you will enjoy the finest bites from our own Lighthouse Grill.
Ticket prices are $30 plus tax for each event and include several wine tastings from each winery, light appetizers and small bites.
