Everyone enjoyed the wines last year that Beth Waters presented from Kiona Vineyards & Winery in Washington State. She is returning with a selection of different wines for us to taste this year. The Williams family planted the Kiona Estate vineyards in 1975 in what became known as the Red Mountain AVA in 2001. It is located entirely within the Yakima Valley AVA, itself part of the larger Columbia Valley wine region.
We will be tasting a 2017 Estate Red Mountain Rose’ of Mourvedre, a 2016 Estate Red Mountain Pioneer Red, a 2015 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, a 2013 Estate Red Mountain Reserve (98 points and Best Bordeaux Blend at the 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition), and a 2015 Fortunate Sun Late Harvest Chenin Blanc.
Beth poured wines for Kiona in the tasting room for a couple of years while she and Jack lived in Washington State. Her love for wine grew as a result of the premier wines created by Kiona and the love for the Williams family and what they have built with their vineyards and wine.
The event starts at 7:00 pm at Grassland Estate Clubhouse, 5800 Crowley, Midland, Texas. The cost will be $40 Members and $45 Guests.
Please RSVP by email or calling Shirley Choate at 432-553-6408 by May 6th. This event will sell out so please make your reservations early.
