The Perfect Blend of Wine, Food, Elegance and People

  The Washington Wine Commission knows how to throw a party! When you get 100 wineries, 300 wines and 400 people in a room for almost four hours, things can become a little fuzzy…not to mention a little warm and a lot crowded. The combination of Spokane’s premier hotel, The Davenport, Washington’s premier wineries, and local culinary treats result in a blend to rival any event in the area. DrinkNectar was a proud Patron Sponsor of the 2010 Taste Washington Event. This included sole sponsorship of the Tweet Wall and exclusive interviews with various wineries and wine trade people. I […]

WAWine Wows the Wine World

Barbara is one of the rare few that have successfully […]

We sat still, relishing in the afterglow, savoring the final moments of true decadence and complete indulgence when it occurred to me and I said, “You know honey, […]

Nectar Monthly Honors May

Do you ever wonder if life can get any more hectic? If you add one more thing to your plate, it’ll just crack under the pressure? This describes my month of May. The month began with a potential business deal that would have made me about ¼ owner of a local winery. That deal fell apart about half way through the month. I was bummed, but now realize that this just gives me more time to pursue world domination.  The crazy hectic month continued with two TV appearances, one newspaper mention, and an interview with a magazine (article comes out […]
