The July "Taste of Walla Walla"dinner cruise will feature three "young gun" superstar winemakers including Cameron Kontos of Kontos Cellars, Justin Basel of Solemn Cellars (formerly of Basel Cellars fame) and Greg Matiko of Skylite Cellars on Saturday, July 21st. This is a fully catered dinner cruise with wine, appetizers and dessert included. The main course includes salmon and prime rib. The voyage departs from Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes on the venerable Mystic Sea, a 100' whale-watching boat with stories and expertise courtesy of Capt. Monte! This is a fantastic scenic cruise through the San Juan Islands (and possibly Deception Pass) abundant with wildlife and spectacular scenery, and if we're lucky we'll see an orca whale or two. A chartered bus will pick you up at Hellams Vineyard in La Conner at 5 p.m. (please check in to the shop no later than 4:15 p.m.) We'll then head over to the Mystic Sea, a 100' boat based out of Anacortes at Cap Sante Marina, board and depart at 6 p.m. The boat will return to dock at 9 p.m., and you'll then be chartered back to La Conner right out front of the wine shop. All three winemakers will be pouring at the shop from 1 - 4 p.m. before departing for the boat.
