There are 101 reasons to be obsessed with Washington. Things like easy access to unreal nature (+ the instagramable views!) and the food scene (nom nom nom) come to mind – but, the one thing that can supersede the things listed above is the vino.
With more than 50,000 acres of vineyards and over 900 wineries just minutes from your doorstep, why would you even think about going anywhere else? (We’re looking at you Northern California).
Our average 16 hours of summer sunlight (1 more than Cali) provide ample time to grow grapes – we’re talking approx. 270,000 tons in 2016.
Those 270,000 tons of grapes then produced 70 varietals – with the most popular being Riesling & Chardonnay from the white variety and Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot from the red variety.
Kirkland Uncorked is proud to stay local and showcase the very best of our beautiful state. Come see for yourself July 14-16. Buy your tickets NOW. What’s better than sampling Washington wine lakeside in Marina Park?! (The answer is nothing)
