3 years ago about a dozen of us Winos camped out at Wilridge Vineyards in the Naches Heights AVA. With 7 tents, 1 Honey Bucket, an outdoor shower, a gas grill and a HUGE deck, I'm pretty sure we had a blast. We still talk about that weekend to this day. We visited all sorts of wineries from Red Mountain to Rattlesnake Hills to Yakima and I believe I got to lay out on I90 in a stand still traffic jam on our way home. SO...Let's do it again!!!
This camping trip will be hosted by Larry Lembecker and Vin du Lac Winery in the Lake Chelan AVA. We will have David Traynor (Asst. Winemaker @Vindulac) give us a production facility tasting out of barrels and stainless steel tank, you will meet almost every winemaker in Chelan/Manson (Just ask Pam) and yes there is a Shower/toilet cabana along with a swimming pool.
Dogs are allowed, but remember, there may be other dogs there and they MUST get along somehow. Guiness, Porter, and Fozzy have passed their tests. :)
The last time we did this I capped the event off to 20. Unfortunately 8 people either flaked out or RSVPed "NO" only hours from the time we should have been there. SO...This time I'm going to ask that if you KNOW you can go RSVP "Yes". Absolutely come with us!! If you are not sure what you're doing that date or if you think something may come up?!? RSVP "No". I really don't want to see the same thing happen here as it did in Naches. Please! If you really have to cancel, please try to give 4 to 5 day notice as there will be a "waiting list" and I'm sure someone else would love to have your spot. I'd hate to have to remove anyone's account, but that's what I will feel I need to do as a result of "flaking out", "forgetting", "blowing-off the event" or otherwise failing to show without cancelling your RSVP. Just wouldn't be fair to others who would enjoy this event with a limited number of available spots.
More on this event to be posted soon!!
