  4. Last Week in Idaho

    We had a great time in support of our distributor BRJ is southern Idaho last week.  With tasting events at Boise new Bodovino as well Crush Wine Bar, we kept things busy, leaving just enough time to bookend the trip doing a little skiing at both Bogus Basin and Sun Valley resorts.



    The road to Bogus with thunderclouds to match.

  5. JAPAN PHOTO JOURNAL: DAY 3

    TOKYO TO OSAKA 

    Osaka is amazing!  Known as the kitchen of Japan if you will, this is a food city through and through - and so we ate!  Follow along with us as we flew south out of Tokyo and then hit the streets.











    Takoyaki (Octopus balls) is everywhere and oh so delicious.  ”And then she said, I didn’t know Octopus had…”









    Difficult to find and yet made famous by Anthony Bourdain (at least to us) Koyoshi can be seen at the very end of this ally on the left under the brown banner.  AMAZING!  This is the Sushi experience you want to have and while we didn’t share a language in common the couple that owns and operates this tiny shop was impossibly warm and welcoming.







    That’s a wrap on day 3.  But then again it is now 8:20 am on day 4 so here we go again.

     

  6. Japan Photo Journal: Day 2, Part 2

    Skiaki and Blowfish!

    Jon really wanted to seek out Blowfish on this trip.  Well we found it, and what we found with it was amazing.  Skiaki is an amazing dish prepared at the table in a soy sauce based broth along with a mix of vegetables and tofu.  The beef is sliced thin and cooks quickly.  We of course selected the ‘All the Beef You Can Eat’ portion with plans to cause the restaurant to rethink this menu item.  We made a good effort but I don’t think we broke any house records for eating this day.

     

  7. JAPAN PHOTO JOURNAL: DAY 2, Part 1

    We spent most of the day sharing some of our wines with the Japan trade in Tokyo, with a mix of  restauranteurs, retailers and importers in attendance to see what both the Washington and Oregon wineries had to show.  The response was huge in the room.  The appeal for Northwest wine is growing.

     

  8. JAPAN PHOTO JOURNAL: DAY 1

    We are crossing the globe with Revelry this spring.  Here are some photos from Day 1 touring in Japan!

  10. This past Friday evening November 1st an intimate group enjoyed the inaugural Harvest Dinner held at Revelry. This event - to be held annually on the Friday evening of the first full weekend in November - is an unprecedented opportunity to taste all six of the AERIALS series releases for the coming year ahead. With just three of those wines actually released in the fall, and the others in the spring, this tasting in advance of release allows the chance to watch the wines as they evolve, and perhaps to even secure your share of these limited offerings.

    The Harvest Dinner is also a chance to enjoy both Revelry Vintners’ wines and Deer Creek Ranch beef together at the same table. Deer Creek Ranch is a working cattle ranch having been in the Burns family for over 20 years, producing some of the finest grass-fed natural beef in the country.
