Kestrel Vintners – Prosser, WA

Today I am at Kestrel Vintners in Prosser, WA. I start by chatting with Asst. Winemaker Dirk Brink about the ’06 Mourvedre they have released. The charming accent is South African, and the wine is just plain excellent.

I also speak with Carlos Trevino, Director of Hospitality about the Salumi Salami and exotic cheese selections they have in the deli case. They will be featuring these in the upcoming Sip and Stroll events on Friday nights. A number of wineries just off of exit 82 in Prosser will be taking part in these events. Kestrel is choosing to call theirs Flights and Bites on Friday Nights. Love it.

Jamie Adams ~ Artist

Jamie Adams is a rising young star on the local art scene. Her wine themed images are on display at Kestrel Vintners in Prosser, WA for the rest of this month. I am just amazed at how realistic some of the pieces look, yet she also has a great eye for design and a flair for the dramatic.

Jamie chose an ’05 Cabernet from Kestrel for us to taste and I also took home an ’05 Merlot.
