For those looking to get a head start on your Memorial Day weekend festivities, Wilridge Winery will be hosting their spring release party this Thursday from 5-9pm.
The winery in the lower level of their building will be offering tastes and bottles of a dozen wines from their own organic and biodynamic vineyard on Naches Heights near Yakima, one of only two vineyards in Washington to be certified biodynamic. They planted the vineyard back in 2007, and this year marks the first release of its wines.
According to owner Paul Beveridge (shown in the video above) most tastes are free, though for the limited edition dessert wines there will be a small fee. The newly-opened Bottlehouse upstairs from Wilridge will also be open, and local restaurants Dulces and St. Clouds are waiving the corkage fee that evening if you bring in a bottle of wine from Wilridge.
