I had an absolute blast hanging out with Bill and Abigail Schwerin, the father / daughter winemaking team at Sapolil Cellars in Walla Walla, WA. Bill can usually be found in the tasting room on Main St., pouring wine for a group gathered round the 100 yr old grand piano that serves as their tasting bar. And if you are in town on a Friday or Saturday night, be sure to stop in for the live music. I was there a couple of weeks ago and heard the more info
band “Papa Loves Mambo”. Best night out I have had in ages. Check their website for the schedule of performers.
I sampled their proprietary red blend (they refer to it as an inverted Super Tuscan) named after the band, with a commemorative label done by artist Jeffrey Hill. Last I heard there were less than 10 cases left of Papa Loves Mambo, so don’t wait too long to get yours. It will sell out very soon. They plan to release the next in the series this December, and they are currently leaning toward calling it “Gandydancer”. I am really looking forward to that one!
