Vintners in the Vineyard

Saturday, June 6, 2015 at 6:00pm

Col Solare Winery, Red Mountain

Thank you to our many guests and vintners who joined us on June 6th for a spectacular Vintners in the Vineyard! We look forward to seeing you at the events in August.

A big thank you to the 135 guests and 25 winemakers for joining us at the annual Vintners in the Vineyard event (previously Revelry on Red Mountain). We hope you enjoyed the phenomenal wines, spectacular views from Col Solare Winery and gourmet food provided by Jake Crenshaw of Olive Catering. With your help, we were able to raise over $13,700 to support the WSU Viticulture & Enology Program and Seattle Children's Hospital.

Take a sneak peak at photos from the event taken by Richard Duval (above). More to come on our Facebook soon!
