Facebook LIKES for Walter Dacon Wines, Shelton, Washington

 Karan Wade-James of Olympia became Walter Dacon's 500th follower on Facebook, April 11th 2010, three months after our page went live.  We now have 576 and we can't wait to congratulate number 1,000. Any guesses on when that might be? Post your guess here; whomever comes closest to the actual date we hit 1,000 will be invited to the winery for a photo-op with the winemaker and a bottle of Walter Dacon Syrah to take home!
