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.
I created a Google Virtual Tour for Tucannon Cellars and it’s live! They recently renovated the Sugar Pine Barn Event Center, added a stream and upgraded the landscaping. I love sitting on the deck behind the tasting room, glass of wine in hand. It has a large tree growing through the center, providing great shade. But don’t just take my word for it, check out the tour by clicking on the image above. Or better yet, visit in person to experience it first hand!
Just did a Google Inside View for the Purple Star Winery tasting room in Benton City, WA. Great folks and excellent wine. A little off the beaten path, but well worth it, especially if you’re interested in seeing what a working winery really looks like. Left click and drag to move around the room and click on any of the arrows to move to the next spot. Come on in and look around! They also have a couple of other labels, Native Sun Wines and Muret-Gaston Wines.
