Poverty Bay #Wine Festival - #SaturdaySnapshots

My husband and I support Rotary Clubs and we like wine so, of course, we go to the DesMoines, Washington, Rotary Club's wine festival every year! Each attendee is given ten tokens to spend for tastes of a variety of wonderful Washington State wines. Here's the selection of wines available for tasting (and purchase) at their recent event. [Click on photos to enlarge.]

I especially liked Twisted Knickers (from Page Cellars) and Nauti Buoy and Land Ho! (from Hard Row to Hoe). I didn't taste Siegerrebe this year (from Whidbey Island Winery) because I've had it before and already know I like it. Don't you love the names of the wines?

The event had just started when we arrived so the tasting tables weren't crowded. By the time we left, the place was packed!

The caramel-flavored liqueurs from Zzaphoria Spirits were delicious! 

Snacks were offered, too. I had a small bowl of Ivar's clam chowder.

Between noon and 2:30 (when we left) quite a bit of money 
had already been raised for the Rotary Club's programs. 
The event lasted until 9:00 p.m.

FYI: Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support peace efforts and end polio forever. They are:
Promoting peace
Fighting disease
Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
Saving mothers and children
Supporting education
Growing local economics

  1. Oooh a wine festival is always a good day. So many wines to try!

  2. What fun! And what a great cause, too. I love the name of that one wine: Twisted Knickers. LOL.

    A few years ago, I spent a week in Napa Valley, and had a blast with the wine tastings, etc.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

    1. We've been to Napa Valley several times. Beautiful part of California, and a great variety of wines. I'd like to take the Wine Train sometime.

    2. That sounds wonderful!!!

    1. It's always fun. A couple of friends usually join us but they couldn't make it this year. We missed them, but we managed to have a good time anyhow.

  4. I love a good wine tasting event too :-D

    I can't believe that Rotary still has to work towards ridding the world of Polio. The vaccine is so readily available! It does my head in that some choose not to vaccinate their children...but don't get me started!

    1. Don't get me started either! I'm just glad there are charitable organizations that donate their money to ridding the world of disease. I'm happy to support them.

  5. I miss wine tasting. My stomach can't handle it anymore. But Bill and I still go to the Temecula area in So Cal for a nice lunch in the wine country every now and then. And I inhale the fumes!

  6. Those are definitely very different names for the wine!
