Where to go in July

Some of the Month's Best Wine Fairs

Horse Heaven Hills Trail Drive

We tend not to hear a lot about wine events in washington. I'm not sure if that's because they aren't happening or if they remain closely guarded secrets but here's one worth knowing about. The 8th annual Horse Heaven Hills Trail Drive Scholarship fundraiser, wine tasting & BBQ has an unwieldy name to be sure, but a noble purpose, supporting scholarships in viticulture and enology. Think about spending your day traveling through Washington's wine country with stops along the way at wineries like Columbia Crest, Canoe Ridge, and Chateau Champoux then ending the adventure with a great BBQ and live music at Crow Butte park on the scenic Columbia river!

    I'm not sure how you missed this one, but the International Pinot Noir Celebration is also held in McMinnville, Oregon in July. This is the 27th year, and it features some of the best Pinot Noir producers on the planet.

  • Absolutely agree with SteveKro. The IPNC is the best wine celebration out there. Good luck getting tickets this late, though. Maybe some tickets available for the salmon bake only.

    Napa valley is always a hot place in the summer, and with our present sweltering heat wave, I am not sure I would visit Napa.

  • We want to plan a get together around wine tasting in September - maybe around the crush in California's Wine country (Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles- can you recommend something a bit more interesting than the usual venues.

  • Wild Horse Winery in the Paso Robles area is a great location for wine tasting this month.
    The area is replete with organic farm selling their home grown produce.
    Enjoy

    Just opened and finished a Mont Saint Fort, Bordeaux 2005 that I have had for a while.
    Beautiful flavor, bouquet, & fragrance. Have to dig in my wine closet and see if I have any other of the same bottles.
    Didn't pay that much for it either.
