Veranda Beach Cellars Hijacks the Wine Bloggers Excursion Bus


Friday, June 7th, 2013

Veranda Beach Cellars Wine Bloggers EventThis weekend Penticton is holding the Wine Bloggers Conference, an international event of all things wine and blogging! Veranda Beach Cellars had the pleasure of hopping on the bus in Chelan and taking over for a wine tasting and 3 course paired lunch for the next two hours until the bus dropped us back off in Oroville, WA.

Trisha and myself served a delicious 3 course paired lunch prepared by the Breadline Diner which included:

Picnic Melon with Fresh Basil
Cantaloupe, honey dew, grapes, and watermelon tossed with honey and basil
Paring: 2012 Lakehouse

Spring Green Salad
8th Street spring greens, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, c’rasins, almonds and feta with rhubarb vinaigrette
Paring: 2012 Regatta Rose

Italian Chicken Sandwich
Grilled Chicken, salami, provolone with Italian dressing on rosemary bread
Pairing: 2010 Collage
Lavender Shortbread Cookies

Meanwhile Rhonda, Veranda Beach Cellars’ Wine Associate extraordinaire, explained to the group of bloggers from all over the United States and Canada about Veranda Beach and our 3 award winning wines! It was such a treat to meet influential wine bloggers with such experienced pallets and share the Veranda Beach story with them!

That leg of the excursion wouldn’t have been possible without the help from the Lake Chelan Valley Wine Association, as well as our family at Veranda Beach, including Katy Perry, Veranda Beach Cellar’s winemaker (also the owner and winemaker of Tildio Winery in Manson, WA), who has crafted our 3 award winning wines and Finis Hale, Veranda Beach Cellars’ Vineyard Manager, who carefully watches over our grapes all year long! Last but not least, a huge thank-you to the Bloggers for their attention, patience, questions, and compliments on our wines!

We had such a fantastic time and we cannot wait to have some of the bloggers join us at Veranda Beach for a true 1950’s experience!

Cheers,

Nikki

Veranda Beach Cellars Wins 3 at Seattle Wine Awards

Wine Judge Sean Sullivan

In April, Seattle’s Historic Rainer Club played host to the 8th annual Seattle Wine Awards
where a distinguished panel of local and national wine professionals, buyers, writers and
sommeliers tasted and evaluated over 900 Washington wines in a single blind format (meaning
grape variety is known, but not the price or producer) and recognized the top wines with Double
Gold, Gold, Silver and Bronze Grand Awards of Excellence.

Double Gold = Best of the Best
Silver = 2nd Best in Category

Veranda Beach Cellars is thrilled to have claimed 3 of these prestigious awards in our inaugural wine competition…

RIESLING
Double Gold 2012 Veranda Beach Cellars Lakehouse Riesling, WA

BLENDED ROSE
Double Gold 2012 Veranda Beach Cellars Regatta Rosé, WA

RED PROPRIETARY BLEND
Silver 2010 Veranda Beach Cellars Collage, WA

Raise a glass in celebration this weekend to our winemaker Katy Perry, our Vineyard Manager Finis Hale and our Wine Associate Rhonda Hinkley!  Thank you for making us smile!

Veranda Beach Cellars 2010 CollageCrafted from selected barrels, Veranda Beach Cellars 2010 Collage has unmistakable personality and balance that stems from the artful blending of 70% Barbera, 20% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Franc. Winemaker Katy Perry notes “the old world techniques used in the making of Collage offer up the feeling of opulence. It is exceptionally persistent, a blend for the most discerning palate and best enjoyed with good friends over a good meal”.

Veranda Beach Cellars wines are produced in such small quantities that we must offer it on an allocated basis. Join our Veranda Beach “Cellar Club” Wine List now to receive your allocation when it is released in May 2013.
