Carrie and Aura traveled to Woodinville for a fabulous day at Novelty Hill / Januik Winery.

Both labels are produced in a beautiful (the building has won architectural design awards) state of the art, green facility.

We were part of a group of Tacoma wine buyers brought up by our lovely sales consultant, Lili from Noble Wines.  A dozen of us rode up in a van (good thing we had a driver!) and by the end of it had become quite a cozy little family (we even had a sing-a-long on the way back!)

The goal of these events, of course is to get us introduced to and excited about the wines produced there.  It worked! Check in next week to see which of their yummy wines we add to our selection!

And did I mention they fed us?  The amazing chef (like many wineries, you can rent this one for weddings, etc) prepared a great lunch for us: trout, asparagus, beef tenderloin, roasted baby carrots….and this amazing wine sorbet (video recipe is on their Facebook page, and mine!)

We had such a greattime that it inspired us to figure out a way to have an Azarra hosted event for a handful of our wine enthusiasts.  We are looking into the cost of having a car & driver take us up.  If we figure out an afforadble way to do it, we will let you know!

Bocce Ball!
