Thursday, April 18th: Cavatappi Winery - Get Tickets Here

Cavatappi wines are inspired by the delicious house wines served in Italy’s restaurants. Thirty years ago, winemaker Peter Dow partnered with Washington state’s revered growers Mike Sauer, and later with Dick Boushey, to plant Italian varieties. Today these wines, made from Washington-grown Nebbiolo and Sangiovese, continue to be enjoyed alongside great food and great company.

Featured Wines:

2014 Molly’s Cuvee Sangiovese
2014 Maddalena Nebbiolo
2016 Sangiovese
2016 Pinot Grigio
One more wine...coming soon!

Tuesday, April 30th: Poliziano Winery - Get Tickets Here

In 1961, Dino Carletti bought 22 hectares of land in the commune of Montepulciano, Tuscany with the desire to reconnect with his cultural heritage by cultivating the vine. Dino planted vineyards in the region and established Poliziano, named as an homage to humanist poet Angelo Ambrogini (1454-1494), known as "Il Poliziano," who was born in Montepulciano. Dino’s son, Federico, who’d grown up tending the vines, pursued an agriculture degree in Florence in 1978 with the intent of carrying on the family tradition. Today, Federico runs the Poliziano winery, and has not only continued to carry the torch as one of the most prestigious producers of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, but has grown the estate from 22 to 120 hectares, expanding into the region of Maremma, and also adding a Cortona DOC wine to the portfolio.

Featured Wines:

2017 Lohsa Morellino Di Scansano
2012 Poliziano Le Stanze IGT
2015 Poliziano Merlot In Violas Cortona
2016 Poliziano Rosso Di Montepulciano
2015 Poliziano Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano
