CRUSH RUSH Wine Event.

I recently had the privilege to attend an epic wine tasting in the barrel room at Barrister. I had the pleasure of sipping with many of our wonderful local winemakers, who of course brought wine :) 

I also enjoyed the company of some of the fine folks from BHW1, Lorie Hutson from the Spokesman-Review but the real guests of honor were the lucky winners of the Crush Rush Scavenger Hunt. This promotion will be another signature event for the SWA. What an event to remember for the winning group.

The lucky winners of the CRUSH RUSH Scavenger Hunt

If you didn't participate in this Spokane Winery Association promotion, you better mark your calendar for Fall 2011 as this was quite the winescapade of a prize complete with cheese from Saunders. 

Here was the stellar cellar line up:

Latah Creek Wine Cellar: "limited release of remarkable reds" of Zinfandel and Petite Syrah
Robert Karl: "crave -worthy" Claret and "sold out sensation" Rose of Cab Franc.
Barrister: "famously fine" Cab Franc: 2005 & 2006
Whitestine Winery: "limited release and scary good" Scared to Pieces
Barili: "Best of Barili" Cabernet Savignon
Liberty Lake Wine Cellars: "Heavenly" Heritage and "Crush on this" Cabernet Sauvignon
Townshend: "Iconic" T3
