We will be participating in the upcoming OSO NEEDS CASH event on Tuesday, April 22 to help raise money for the victims of the Oso, WA mudslide. The event will take place at the Palace Ballroom in downtown Seattle, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Attendees will sip wine from a selection of top Washington wineries, enjoy a bite to eat from participating restaurants, and will have the opportunity to bid on auction items.  Bruce Pavitt, founder of Sub Pop Records, will also be on hand spinning records.

We will be pouring our 2011 Columbia Valley Merlot and our 2003 Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon. All proceeds from the event will go directly to United Way of Snohomish County. They were chosen because they have committed to giving 100% of the funds directly to families in the area. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased through Tom Douglas' website.  If you can't make it but still want to contribute, you can buy a ticket that will be given to a culinary student from one of the local community colleges.

This wine tasting fundraiser was created by Seattle chef Tom Douglas and winemaker Charles Smith. and in partnership with Ethan Stowell Restaurants and the Huxley Wallace Collective.

All About Nelms Road, +20% Off!


The Seattle Times recently published a nice article about our Nelms Road wines. The article highlights our philosophy and why making Nelms Road is so important to our overall winemaking program. These wines may be produced in larger quantities, may be more widely distributed and may be at a lower price point, but they adhere to the same standards of quality as our reserve wines. Check out The Seattle Times article by Andy Perdue for the full story on how this brand came to be.

Want to try the Nelms for yourself? Here’s your chance to purchase these wines at an awesome discounted price. We recently released our 2012 Nelms Road Cabernet Sauvignon and 2012 Nelms Road Merlot and are currently offering a 20% discount on these wines. Use code nelms2014 when checking out at our online store. There is no minimum order requirement, and we offer free shipping on purchases of six or more bottles of any of our wines. This promotion ends February 28th, so don’t miss out on this great opportunity!
Nelms Road screw cap

Also, keep your eyes open for some changes to the Nelms Road packaging. You’ll notice on our 2012 Nelms wines that we have moved to a screw cap instead of a cork. This decision was twofold – we can better guarantee a great product with no chance of cork taint, and we reduce our costs, which allows us to keep prices low for you. Stay tuned for a label redesign to be rolled out in the next couple years as well.
