In case you missed the news, Cameron Myhrvold and Ryan Johnson have adopted the WeatherEye Vineyard moniker as the name of the vineyard going forward. Our wine will carry the WeatherEye Vineyard designation when released.
FIRST TASTE, AT TASTE WA
We have been invited to preview the first wines from this vineyard on March 30 at the Taste Washington Seminar, Extreme Viticulture: Higher, Deeper, Bolder, moderated by Sean Sullivan from the Wine Enthusiast. Ryan Johnson of WeatherEye Vineyard will sit on the panel with Chris and Marty in attendance. A barrel sample of the 2018 vintage Grenache will be offered for attendees to try. A first and exclusive preview!
Tickets for this seminar go fast so sign up soon if they haven’t sold out already. More information here: https://ticketing.sagacitymedia.com/f/taste-washington-2019/saturday-seminars
- Auction of Washington Wines, Private Barrel Auction - August 15, 2019 - We will be participating in the invitation-only event this summer and will be donating five cases of our first vintage. In conjunction with this event in August, we expect to be able to reveal the final brand and packaging design.
- March 2020 – First allocations will be finalized and a private barrel tasting of the 2018 vintage will be hosted. Those registered on our mailing list will receive more information and a personal invitation to this event once details are determined.
- Late Fall 2020 – First release of Red Mountain Elevated Wines, all wines will be shipped. Release event date TBD.
All of us at the Red Mountain Elevated project team are thrilled with the progress we are making. The wines in barrel are some of the most compelling we have ever produced. Time will tell and patience is something you learn in the wine business. We have a lot of work to do before March of 2020, when we will be able to share the exciting results of this new project with you.
All the best,
Marty and Chris
