Spring Barrel Tasting

April 26, 27, 28

Paul, the Man in the Wild Pants, has been hosting Spring Barrel Tastings since 1985, both in Spokane and the Yakima Valley. Approximately 46 separate events. He has tried to make each one different and an opportunity to learn more about the complexity that is wine.

It’s getting more difficult to find a new bit to explore that can be done in a brief time and is apparent to most folks. He has been so busy pruning our grapes that he hasn’t had time to think of a topic yet, but we will update this or post something new when he does.

In addition, we will teach you how to taste rather than just sample.

The renowned Lupe, Reyna de la Cocina of Lupe’s Kitchen Catering in Toppenish, will have her fabulous street tacos and tamales available on Saturday the 29th in person and we will have the tamales sans Lupe the rest of the days.

And as always, a plate with tiny morsels to explore how our wines are meant to be another food on your table. After the micro-mini seminar, we offer a micro-mini-10-course winemaker tasting, 10 teensy tiny bites of food to go with our 10 different wines. Sip, Sip, Bite, Sip!

We start with our famous Rosé Paradiso and Mushroom Pâté, Chèvre à l’Estragon and our Oyster White, Paul’s Peanut Sauce with our Sève, and Pasta Arti-Pesto with our B’s Blend. Next are our reds—with our Sangiovese we are serving Glondo’s Pepperoni. Rojo Paradisos is our pizza wine; we would love to have pizza, but it just doesn’t seem to work as a small-bite option, who can eat just one bite? So instead, we have another Glondo’s yummy, their salami. With our Cabernet Sauvignon is our ever-famous Bleu-Cheese Dip. PMS Paul’s Mocha Stuff is served with a tiny bite of dark chocolate from Intrigue Chocolate; we suggest you melt this in your mouth rather than bite. With the Zort, we have another bite of dark chocolate from Intrigue Chocolate. Last, but not least, is our Angelica MRS. We have a skosh of Vegan Pumpkin Custard to go with that.

We know it is hard to choose which wineries to visit, so we hope you come to visit us. Our $15 tasting fee is applied towards a purchase of at least $30. 20% of every tasting fee paid is donated to Yakima Humane Society. Club members and returning customers receive 10% off your purchase of 2 or more bottles and 30% or 50% off case purchase on selected wines. For Spring Barrel Tasting, groups of 8 or more will be turned away if they don’t have a reservation. Come Taste Paradise!
