As you have heard me mention, March is Washington Wine Month and the FUN continues with a new arrival on the shelf at Jacob Liquor Exchange; Diversion Wines.  Proprietor Damian Davis is  my guest this week.

Celebrate Taste Washington Wine Month 2016

TasteWaWineMonth_RedPlaid_NoDate_LogoTaste Washington Wine Month in March is an annual celebration of Washington State’s award winning industry. Check out the promotions happening at participating restaurants, wine shops, winery tasting rooms, and hotels below. Or, click on the Calendar to see what’s happening today or any day in March.

And don’t forget, the culmination of Taste Washington Wine Month is Taste Washington – happening over four days, March 31-April 3, 2016. Buy tickets or find a list of participating wineries, restaurants and exhibitors at tastewashington.org

If you can’t attend Taste Washington, at least you can tune in every Saturday to hear more stories and great wine from the Columbia Valley.  You should also plan on visiting Jacob Liquor Exchange each week for the FREE tastings featuring some of the fine wines from Washington state!

Damian Davis

Rainier Wine Company is growing into one of the larger wine companies in the Northwest, producing 75,000 cases annually.

It isn’t a typical winery. Rather, it is roughly modeled after the European négociant system and is quite similar to how Precept Wine in Seattle has grown in size and prominence the past dozen years. Davis left his life on Florida’s Gulf Coast in 1999 to move to Seattle for a high-tech job. Along his journey, he stopped in the Yakima Valley to taste wine and became smitten. For the next five years, Davis’ love affair with wine grew to the point he became driven to enter the wine business.

According to Damian – “Diversion Wine is a unique project, brought together by a passion for Washington wine and the Pacific Northwest great outdoors. We were driven to develop a wine that captured not only the distinct terroir of Washington State but that would also depict the majestic beauty of its iconic geography.”  www.diversionwine.com
