Walla Walla, Wash. — September 8, 2017 — Since his first commercial harvest in 2014, owner and winemaker Brad Binko, of Eternal Wines and sister label Drink Washington State, has moved his production each year. Now he’s signed a six-year tenant lease in one of the five Walla Walla’s airport’s Incubator winery facilities located on Piper Avenue.
“This is huge for us!” says Binko. “We will finally be able to have all our production, case storage, and equipment under one roof.” Each year he has also increased production to keep up with demand, and this new move will allow the winery room to continue that growth.
Binko says he plans on keeping his current tasting room located at 9 S 1st Avenue in Walla Walla and will open the tasting room at the airport in the spring of 2018. The incubator he will be moving into is currently hosting Burwood Brewery, which is about to move into a new facility that was custom built for their needs.
Brad Binko, who is also a certified Sommelier, graduated from the Enology and Viticulture program in June, 2016. Eternal Wines is focused on single vineyard Rhone varietals, while Drink Washington State is focused on blends from Washington and is AVA specific.
The downtown tasting room hours are Thursday through Saturday 12-8pm, and Sunday through Wednesday 12-7pm. They feature live music at least once a week. For more information visit www.EternalWine.com or www.DrinkWashington.wine or call (509) 240-6258.
