Spokane March of Dimes Signature Chef and Wine Event

March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

How many cities afford you the location to get in a round of golf, spend the afternoon on the lake, hike in the mountains, and enjoy world class restaurants, shopping and wine without driving all over […]

Exclusive Nodland Cellars Availability

Nodland Cellars is making some really cool stuff! In this blogger’s opinion, you would be hard pressed to find a better traditional Bordeaux style blend than the 2006 Red Blend from Nodland Cellars. The wine caught my attention at Taste Washington (Seattle) and I sent 3 of my fellow wine writing friends over to try it. It made two of their “top lists” for the day.  When I was in Walla Walla for the 2010 Wine Blogger’s Conference, I chose one wine to share with friends, the 2006 Nodland Private Blend.
