Join Walter Dacon In the Vineyard - It's All about Terroir -

Please Join Us at Walter Dacon Wines for our Third Seminar:

May 5th, 6:30 – 8 pm

“In the Vineyard – It’s All about Terroir

Here in Washington State, wine grapes have a legacy reaching back nearly 17,000 years when catastrophic ice age floods began carving the rugged terrain where today’s grape vines thrive. Lloyd (Andy) will help us experience the Missoula Floods through animations and learn how wine is a reflection of terroir (the interaction of geology, soil, climate and human intervention – a sense of place. We have no one word that translates the French word terroir).
We will taste wine from different vineyards, aged in barrels of the same cooperage and toast levels. You will see and taste the vast difference. We’re sure you will be amazed at the differing flavor profiles.

Please sign up early, there are only 20 spaces. You’ll receive a glass of Walter Dacon wine, nibble on gourmet cheeses along with artisan breads for a cost of $20.

Our last seminar on stemware was sold out.

You can go to Facebook, search for Walter Dacon, click on Events to RSVP to the seminar, give us a call @ 360 426-5913 or email us at ann@walterdaconwines.com.

Taste Washington TV-Walter Dacon Wine News
by: Vivian Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

New this year at Taste Washington was a live web cast that included interviews with Washington winemakers during the Grand Tasting on Sunday, March 28th. Yashar Shayan did a great job quickly recruiting wine bloggers and Twitteristas to be the interviewers. The selected interviewers then recruited winemakers from a list of wineries and restaurants with a Twitter presence.

Knowing the easy-going, convivial nature of Ann and Lloyd (Andy) Anderson of Walter Dacon Wines, I tracked them down to ask if they would be part of the first ever Taste Washington TV. ”We would love to” was the answer. Together we agreed to keep it short and light-hearted. Here we are – Ann, Andy and Vivian un-rehearsed, near the end of a long, delicious day enjoying 200 wineries and 60 Seattle restaurants. “All right Mr. De Mille, I’m ready for my close-up”
