Avennia’s 10th Harvest – A Party, Concert, & Release Celebration
September 7, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$25 – $40
Harvest is coming…
As hard as it is for us to believe, this Fall will be our 10th harvest at Avennia. We are grateful and humbled to witness how our wines have been embraced by wine critics, restaurants, our trade partners around the world and, mostly importantly, by you – our loyal customers and membership program participants. We truly would not be here without you and your support over the years. To mark this 10th harvest and start the season off with a bang, we are throwing our annual Fall Release party, the weekend after Labor Day, hopefully before the winery becomes chock full of fermenting grapes!
For the past 2 years, we have celebrated the arrival of our single vineyard Syrahs in September with a good, old-fashioned Pig Roast, inviting new chefs to cook the meal each time. After all, what goes better with earthy Washington Syrah than slow-roasted pork? This year, our friends at J&J BBQ Company will be working their wonders with fire and smoke.
The Menu: Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Baked Beans, Cornbread Puddin’, Mac n’ Cheese, Buns, and a Selection of Tasty Sauces.
From the beginning, Winemaker Chris Peterson and Managing Partner Marty Taucher connected on a mutual love of music. There’s always music playing in the cellar when Chris is working, and Marty has kept his drumset at the winery for years. So we’ve invited one of Chris’s favorite local musicians, Paul Benoit, to play at the party. Show starts at 1:00pm.
