I believe in my last newsletter I reported that we were having spring rain. Nothing new to report as we are still having spring rain in the Walla Walla Valley, but there is plenty to report on here at the W5.
As you know the new website,Wild Walla Walla Wine Woman is up and running. We have so many new wines to list I cannot keep up! "Too many wines, so little time!" In a weak moment I realized I cannot do everything, so I have recruited some help to get our large and growing selection online. New wines from Walla Walla, Oregon, California, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Lebanon, Morocco (Morocco?) and more!
"More" even includes a selection of specialty beers, ales, mead, and sake has hit our shelves. Beers and ales such asTrappist beers, German, West Coast artisan brews such as Brother Thelonious and and some Scottish delights such as the Kilt Lifter, Fraoch Heather Ale, and yee ol' Skull Splitter and -- well, more!
Always arriving are new wine-related gifts, assorted gourmet packaged foods, cheeses, chocolates and even W5 logo T-shirts, aprons and posters. So keep checking our website, and better yet, drop by the shop to see all of the newest additions!
To wish the summer on, besides our morning dance ritual to the sun, we have been buying (and drinking) lots of cool and crisp rosés. rosé and still be a bad *ss.
Have you been to one of our wine tasting events? If not, you are not only missing on some great tastes, but some wine education, as well. Can't think of a better way to learn but with a full glass.
