Tops from Taste Washington

Tops from Taste Washington This weekend I had the privilege of attending Taste Washington on behalf of my DrinkNectar.com wine blog.

Six wines, two drain dumpers, two meh, and two certified “deals.” This is the result of the Grocery Outlet Challenge. Yesterday, I received a comment on my blog that I MUST pass along. Kelly shares this in regards to wine deal hunting at Grocery Outlet, “You have to kiss a lot of wine-toads before you find your prince charming vin.” Day One: How do You Define a Bargain?

Spokane is an amazing place for wine. As you sit there in your robe and bunny slippers, I think it’s time to get out there and explore at least one of the sixteen Spokane wineries.
