July 18 Seminar
"Va Piano Vineyards"
- Jackalope Grill
- 4:00-6:00 (Arrive 15 min. early.)
On Monday, July 18, Women Tasting Wine will feature wines from Va Piano Vineyards, presented by owner/wiemaker Justin Wylie. The inspiration for a Tuscan-themed winery and tasting room came about after Justin spent his senior year at Gonzaga University studying in Florence, Italy. Upon his return to Walla Walla Valley (Justin is a fourth-generation native), his passion for wine making (and wine!) soon matched his passion for Tuscany and the seeds for Va Piano Vineyards were planted.
Va Piano wines display intense flavors, fine tannin structure and intense aromas: quintessential Wahington State characteristics. The majority of grapes they use are estate grown, and they continue to source grapes from carefully chosen vineyards acroass the region because fruit from different soil profiles create more complex wines.
We will meet on Monday, July 18, from 4:00-6:00 at Jackalope Grill. The cost is $45.
To facilitate making your reservation for the July 18 WTW Seminar, we will be accepting credit cards as well as cash or checks (made out to “Women Tasting Wine"). You can drop off your check at Bend Wine Cellar Thursday or Saturday from 2:00-5:00. (Stop by Saturday and enjoy a complimentary wine tasting.) You can also call Diane (541-420-1213) with your credit card information. As the menu is a fixed one and not a la carte, please let us know at the time of registration if you have any food allergies. We need to have our final numbers in on the Tuesday before the event for the purpose of ordering the food, so payment needs to be received by Monday, July 11. Please note the cut-off date!
Remember, reservations are on a first come, first served basis and your payment is your reservation. Since we have to have our “head count” in by Wednesday morning, there will be no refunds for cancellations after 9:00 AM Tuesday, July 12, or for no-shows on the day of the seminar.
We hope to see you in July and at future monthly Women Tasting Wine Seminars!
