Eighth Street Wineries Open House – The First for 2013

Twice a year, a collection of independent, artisan winemakers come together for their Eighth Street Wineries Open House. Their first of two Open Houses for 2013 will be on Saturday, February 23, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Why should you go? I can think of many reasons why!

  • Taste fine artisan wines you won’t find on the mass market
  • Taste limited production, current releases, and library wines
  • Taste wines straight from the barrel
  • Enjoy gourmet food pairings created just for these high quality ultra premium artisan wines from restaurant and catering partners
  • Meet winery proprietors and winemakers

The setting is like no other. Guests are invited into the warehouse that serves as the cellar. This showcase is a celebration of boutique, hand made wines. A few of the participating wineries have tasting rooms that are open daily, the majority usually require appointments to experience their wines.
