Wine News for The Weekend

Covey Run 10k Happens, Rôtie Cellars Throws a Free Party, Twisted Cork Reopens.

August 20, 2010

Try free samples of Rôtie wines in SoDo this Saturday.

Oh, it’s a big wine weekend this, seeing as the Auction of Washington Wines began yesterday and continues through Saturday. All the players will be out at the winemakers dinners tonight. Those are all sold out but you can check out the Covey Run 10k tomorrow, which begins at 8am(!) at the Redhook Brewery in Woodinville.

Here’s some other wine news:

This Saturday, August 21 from 2 to 5pm, Rôtie Cellars, which makes some Rhone-style blends of which I am a big fan—they are an excellent value at $25 to $35—is hosting a party at the Full Pull wine warehouse in SoDo.

The party is free, though admittedly the idea is to get you to join the new wine club, and the deal there is that if you join now, you get 2010 prices on wine for life. Rôtie winemaker Sean Boyd is also assistant winemaker at Waters, one of our state’s more lauded wineries.

In other wine news, Bellevue’s Twisted Cork has reopened at 900 Bellevue Way East as Twisted Cork and Twisted Cork Wine Bar. Once part of the 0/8 Seafood Grill, Twisted Cork is now its own thing.
