You Saw It Here First!

Submitted July 7th, 2010

Note: You saw it here first! : ) Watch Cashmere grow!

Cashmere is on its way to becoming another wine center for visitors and locals. Crayelle Cellars and Waterville Winery are already established there on MIssion Ave. near the distillery, and it won’t be long before they are joined by others. The Flanagans of Ryan Patrick Vineyards are establishing their wine production facility there, as well as a new tasting room, and it won’t be long before both are up and running.

Going through Junkyard Gypsy next door will take you back a good many years when you view their collection of clothing, furniture and other miscellany from years gone by.

The Wenatchee World online has created a new site in their Communities section, Cashmere World, which is definitely worth checking out, with its interesting articles and stories. I especially like Fran Tabor’s articles, Taber Homestead: a Pioneer Story, and Aren’t we lucky?.

Wine:

Grocery Outlet has a dry French rose’ from Robert Skalli in stock. Skalli is the French parent company of St. Supery winery in Napa. We have presented their wines several times over the past years. The Skalli wines are not normally available in WA state.

This wine is very dry, as are most French rose’ wines, and went well with our delicate steelhead last night. And, at $2.99, it’s a real bargain.

I’ve heard good reports on Square Nail cab sauv but haven’t tried it yet. Same with a white from Australia called Tempus Two, Melange 2006–a blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. It sounds good but today is cloudy and chilly so we’ll try the Square Nail tonight with a pot roast. It’s cold up here on the hillside!

Beginning July 10, Alex will be pouring at the local Ryan Patrick tasting room here in town, so come by and say hello if you’re around.

Don’t forget to schedule in the pig roast at Bergrens’ home July 24. It’s always one of the highlights of the summer. More will come on that later.
