Baja has always been an enigma to me and the wine no less a part of that. Heard stories of the good wines tasted while there but also how none of it makes it’s way north (and what does is usually crap.) Tom Bracamontes who has worked with Napa wineries for many years wanted to help solve this problem and found the best Baja wines I’ve ever tasted. These are real eye openers (and delicious!) Tom will be on hand tonight and will provide insight to the wines. Taste the four reds I thought were the best ~ $17 / 12.75 club members.  6 – 9 PM ~ drop by anytime this evening.

Washington wine doesn’t get enough attention in our state and it’s a shame. We recently discovered Browne Family Wines and love them all (in fact they are also club family selections for October.) In addition, we have a flight of 3 wines from top southern Rhône producer Xavier including their 95+ point Chateauneuf du Pape!
