Davenport Cellars is celebrating its grand opening this weekend. Come and visit them this weekend in their Woodinville tasting room and production facility from 1-5pm. They are located in the Woodinville Warehouse district, right next to Des Voigne, at 19501 144th Ave NE, Suite B600, Woodinville, WA 98072.
Meet Jeff and Sheila Jirka the winemaker/owners of Davenport Cellars. They will be pouring three wines for you:
- Rose of Cab Franc
- The Snowflake – Sauvignon Blanc and Semillion blend
I am a big fan of The Snowflake and I am not the only one!
This white Bordeaux blend is exceptionally balanced. It has lovely fruit offset by bright but far from overwhelming acidity. Aged in stainless steel and with malo-lactic fermentation discouraged, this wine maintains the cool, crisp and refreshing flavors of the grape. Jeff has shown a great deal of respect for the grapes here, using the blend to bring out the best characteristics instead of using a heavy hand in the processing.
Can’t make it there this weekend? Be sure to stop by and see them 8/20 during the Woodinville Warehouse Wine Walk.
