Tri-City Wine Festival 2017

I had a blast at the 39th Annual Tri-Cities Wine Festival at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick last Saturday night! I seized the opportunity to try out my new 3 gimbal stabilizer for video with my cell phone. It worked really well, most of the awkwardness came from operator error. Hopefully I’ll get better as I gain experience using it.

There were over 70 wineries represented, and over 200 wines available for sampling. Below is some video I shot while making the rounds doing some tasting. College Cellars in Walla Walla won double gold and best of show for their 2017 Muscat.

Next year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, November 17th.









Kitzke Cellars

I had a great time photographing Kitzke Cellars the other day. They’re nestled among the vineyards and have an amazing view of the Tri-Cities. Don’t miss the lovely secluded patio/tiki bar on the back side. And you couldn’t ask for more charming and gracious hosts than Vickie and Paul Kitzke.
