Amavi Cellars!

Mike and I were out doing our favorite past-time, wine tasting! We had the pleasure of having his sister and a mutual friend with us, what a good time we had!

Our first stop was at Amavi Cellars and we had the pleasure of meeting Brian Dennis, the tasting room host.  He was very charismatic and knowledgeable about the wine he poured and was very willing to pass out any paraphernalia containing  information about Amavi. One interesting tidbit we learned was that Amavi Cellars is  a sister to Pepper Bridge Winery, they share a beautiful estate in Walla Walla near the Oregon border. They also source from their own estate vineyards, which consist of Seven Hills, Pepper Bridge, and Les Collines.  I enjoy the earthy taste that Jean-Francois Pellet, winemaker partner, produces in his wines! I can appreciate the great care he takes in cultivating his wines in a natural way that preserves the grape. I found the 2011 Merlot a very lovely social wine with a summery feel. I really wanted to try a nice white and I learned that they carry a beautiful Semillon, that earned 91 points in Wine Enthusiast-editor’s choice, but they were all sold out.

Please visit this interesting winery and enjoy a beautiful moment of solitude with the wine grape!
