The Wines

An amazing selection of outstanding whites and reds from Alexandria Nicole Cellars.

The Program

At our April tasting program we will all benefit from the superb reputation of the Horse Heaven Hills appellation, which is well demonstrated in the lush wines from Alexandria Nicole Cellars. Their 263 acre estate vineyard - Destiny Ridge - is high on the bluffs overlooking the Columbia River. From that they have great control, from bud to bottle, in crafting small lots of world class wines. And they have many awards, from Gold to Double Gold to Platinum from judging throughout the West, as testament to the skill of winemaker/owner Jarrod Boyle.

We'll also learn about their sustainable farming and production practices, including the installation of their 20 Wind Spires - unique wind turbines which feed power to their production facility. And we may hear how we can go "glamping" at their vineyard.

Rather than visiting their tasting rooms in Prosser or Woodinville, we can sample an amazing selection of their outstanding whites and reds in our own venue.

Since I'm sure you'll enjoy the tasting do your friends a favor and invite them to come with you.

Join us for the "Welcome Wine" at 7:15 PM with the Program to begin at 7:30 PM. Bring 2 (two) wine glasses for comparative tasting, and that friend we talked about to share the evening with you.

The Master Chefs of the Northwest Culinary Institute will be matching these fantastic wines with some intriguing food bites specifically paired to match their best qualities.

Make your reservations early as seating is expected to fill up quickly.

Cost is $30 for members and $35 for guests, if made before Saturday the 8th ($33 and $38 at the door) ). Note - if you reserve and then must cancel, please call or email because we are charged for all reservations.
