Dusted Valley Cellars Winemaker Tasting Event
Date: Friday, December 9
Time: 4 to 7 pm
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: Free
Format: Open House

You see, there was a time when a state by the name of Washington highly influenced the young, burgeoning mind of yours truly. A time of long hair and longer dreams. Dreams like those of Eau Claire’s favorite daughter, Janet Johnson, owner of Dusted Valley Winery in Columbia Valley. The year was 2003, and Janet, her husband, Chad, sister Cindy and brother-in-law, Corey, set out to grow wine in the Walla Walla Valley. All these Wisconsin farm kids did was found the 40th winery in the valley. Now there are more than 400.

My dear friends, let us be aloof, a bit uncouth, and stain a tooth with these lovely selections.  We’ll be pouring our Christmas Cab, Dusted Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, at the lowest worldly price of $24.99, and other favorites from Dusted Valley. Here to kick it off is the lovely Janet Johnson.  Not only is she one of us, she is a fabulous one!  A tasting not to be missed.  I guarantee it.

Wines to be tasted:
2013 Dusted Valley Cabernet $56.99
2013 Dusted Valley Petite Sirah $59.99
2013 Dusted Valley Stained Tooth Sirah $59.99
& more

The Bordeaux & Cabernet Festival
Date: Saturday, December 10
Time: 11 am to 5 pm. Expanded hours!
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $30 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase
Format: Festival

How amazing would it be to have the best of the best of Cabernet from across the entire world, all at once?

Even better – how amazing would it be to taste two-thirds of Bordeaux’s Grand Cru Classe wines, all at once? Take a look below, I think you’ll agree, the list is impressive and offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience in tasting Bordeaux.

But it gets better as we go further than just Bordeaux. If you like Napa Cabernet, Sonoma, Bolgheri, Margaret River or even places farther afield – we’ve got it, and we will be pouring it.

Truly, what we have stacked up for you in terms of Cabernet-based wines is some of the best of the best in the world. And not only that, but for a mere $30 (which can be credited towards a purchase) you get to taste them all at once.

The Cabernet Festival was always a revelatory experience, and now it’s even more amazing. Come early, stay late, but whatever you do, mark your calendars – this one is not to miss.

Due to the highly allocated nature of these wines they may sell out before the tasting. If they do, we will make every effort to replace them with a wine of equal value.
