August Wine of the Month!

It’s August!

I don’t know about you, but for me, this summer is going very quickly. It seems like only yesterday that we were kicking off our summer concert series and hoping that it would be warm enough. However, our winemaker tells me that we should have a long, warm autumn, great for harvest, and great for going to the lake!

It’s time again for our wine of the month. Drum roll please…

It’s our brand new 2009 Columbia Valley Chardonnay!

This wine was just released a few weeks ago and has become a new favorite for me. I’m not usually much of a Chardonnay drinker, but this one has captured my heart. It’s fruity and gently acidic (which makes it very food-friendly) but light enough to drink as an aperitif. If you haven’t already tried it, this is the perfect opportunity. Wine Club members get 30% off the featured wine on Thursdays by the bottle or case. If you’re not part of the Wine Club already, you might want to consider it!

Some of my favorite pairings for this wine include: Shrimp Scampi with Garlic Butter, Seasonal Mixed Vegetable Quiche, French Vanilla Chocolate and Camembert, Gouda, Brie or Cheddar cheeses.

Of course, Wine Club Thursdays (and our 2009 Chardonnay) are available at both of our locations: The Cliff House and River Park Square.

Please feel free to comment, call (509.927.9463) or email ( with questions, or just to say hi.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
