Spokane Weekend Wine Time April 23-25
I’m pretty stoked for this weekend of wine events. Two amazing wines are being released and I had the fortunate opportunity to score them before anyone else for review. In addition to these two killer juice releases, don’t miss out on a weekend of wine in Spokane.
Having an event and don’t see it on the list? Email me firstname.lastname@example.org

Rocket Market: The last time we did the tour of Italy, the class was packed, and we couldn’t accommodate all who wanted to attend. Matt has selected some fantastic Italian wines from many regions of the “boot” and you will be amazed at what thousands of years of experience does for producing quality wine. Barbaresco, Ripassa, Vin Santo and perhaps even a Barolo. $25 343-2253
