My Ultimate Favourite Wine for 2012

 mywinepal  January 8, 2013

Based on the wines that I’ve reviewed last year, what would you guess my favourite wine would be? A wine from France or Washington State? A Pinot Noir or Syrah? Well those would be good guesses, but not correct. My Ultimate Favourite Wine for 2012 I tasted this wine at a seminar during the Taste of Tulalip.  The wine maker is Mr….

 mywinepal  December 19, 2012

In my last post I gave you my list of favourite white and sparkling wines that I tasted in 2012.  Hopefully, you can buy a bottle or two for one of your holiday soirees.   My follow-up to that article is my favourite red wines.  With a special request from my friend Kalpna, I have a section for Pinot Noir, but…

The Taste of Tulalip Grand Taste 2012 with Wine and Beer

 mywinepal  November 24, 2012

The big event IMHO for the Taste of Tulalip is the “Grand Taste“.  Big it is, with a tasting room featuring wines from 75 Washington State wineries, as well as additional wineries from California, Oregon, Italy, and France.  I did not do a final count, but I would guess there were about 150 wineries present at the Grand Taste.  With…

 mywinepal  November 17, 2012

It is not often that you can enjoy a magnum of wine, unless you are having a celebration like a birthday party, wedding, etc. At the Taste of Tulalip, we did have the Celebration Dinner on the Friday night, so on Saturday we were treated to keep celebrating with some wonderful magnums of wine from around the world. Last year…

 mywinepal  November 13, 2012

This is my second year at the Taste of Tulalip. Last year I was getting my feet wet, trying to learn the ropes.  Here is the  link to my Celebration Dinner notes last year.  This year, I came prepared with a plan, and how to pace myself.  The Taste of Tulalip starts off with the Friday evening Celebration Dinner, where…

A Sneek Peek of the 4th Annual Taste of Tulalip

 mywinepal  October 13, 2012

We are less than a month away from the Taste of Tulalip, wine and food event held at the Tulalip Resort Casino, in Washington State.  The casino invited a few of the food and wine media to get a sneek peek at what we, and you, can expect to experience on November 9 and 10, 2012.  Luckily I was one…

My Experience Visiting 4 Woodinville Wineries May 2012

 mywinepal  May 13, 2012

Last weekend I had the opportunity to go down to Woodinville, WA and try the wines from 4 different wineries. I’ve been travelling down to Woodinville every few months and going to a different set of wineries’ tasting rooms. I think I’ve counted about 96 tasting rooms, so going to 4 per trip will take me 24 trips. Where is…

Wine Selections from My First Ever Taste Washington Event

 mywinepal  April 6, 2012

As you may know, I take regular trips down to WA state to visit wineries and tasting rooms (in Woodinville) to learn more about Washington State wines and to pass along that information to you.  I had not had the opportunity until this year to make it down to Seattle to Taste Washington.  What a wonderful event I must say. …

In case you haven’t heard or tried wines from these two wineries, Le Vieux Pin makes wine in a French style, while La Stella takes the Italian route.  What do eggs have to do with this?  Read on about the wines first….

Wind Rose Cellars – For the Love of Italian Grapes

 mywinepal  March 22, 2012

Another winery I had a good luck to visit when I was in the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State was Wind Rose Cellars.  The owner and wine maker, Mr. David Volmut, greeted me at the door.  Wind Rose Cellars just opened last year in Sequim (pronounced “skwim”) but is already producing some nice wines.  David does have wine making experience,…
