I'm very excited to join you at CellarPassTV
once more and this time to feature three of my favorite spring selections from
The Orcas Project!
2020 Grenache Blanc from winemaker Morgan Lee. Light and fresh and full of energy it screams seafood.
2020 Boushey Vineyard Marsanne from winemaker Riley Miller. It's his minimal intervention, low alcohol version of the Rhone grape and really pushing boundaries.
2017 Graciano made by winemaker Javier Alfonso. This is the first planting in Washington of this rare red grape normally found in Spain and really special.
I can't wait to introduce you to this lineup! We will be shipping these as a 3-pack to California, Washington and Oregon.
The price is $89 plus tax and shipping.
Place your order by April 19th and we'll get these to you in time to enjoy them with us live!
