Last June we had the good fortune to discover Glencorrie Winery at the Seattle Wine Awards. In fact, we liked the Glencorrie lineup of red wines so much that we made a point of going to their winery later that month when we visited Walla Walla.
What makes these Washington wines so great? Perhaps it’s because production is limited to just about 650 cases of wine in order to produce the highest quality wine possible. Or maybe it’s because they’re striving to produce food friendly wines. Whatever it is, they’re doing something right! Personally, I like that Glencorrie’s wines are fruit forward and not overly oaked. Plus, they are showing great now while having some structure to stand the test of time.
The Bad News
The bad news is that with limited production, we don’t often come across Glencorrie wines. The good news is that Ronn Coldirion, one of the proprietors of Glencorrie Winery will be in town this weekend. If you are one of the lucky ones, you already reserved your seat at their winemaker dinner being hosted by Andaluca Restaurant because it is sold out with a long wait list.
Good News You Can Use
However, if you neglected to plan ahead don’t despair! Ronn will also be pouring his wines in Seattle on Saturday.
- What: a free wine tasting featuring the red wines of Glencorrie Winery with a fun sensory aroma exercise to help you identify the aromas in wine.
- Where: the Magnolia location of Dish it up! in Seattle at 2425 33rd Avenue West in Seattle.
- When: this Saturday, January 29th, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
So, don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to meet Ronn Coldiron in Seattle and taste the amazing wines coming out of Walla Walla’s Glencorrie Winery.
Full disclosure: I work for Dish it up! and organized this event. However, I was not asked by anyone to approach this particular winery. Nor did the people of Glencorrie Winery approach me. I simply hope that as many people as possible get the pleasure of experiencing these wonderful wines.
