March 28, 2017 — On May 20, 2017 the Walter Clore Wine & Culinary Center in Prosser will host the 2nd Annual “Rising Stars: A Tasting Experience of Washington’s Newest Wineries” event. This showcase of 35 of the newest wineries in Washington is presented in partnership with Washington Tasting Room® magazine.
“We are once again thrilled to partner with the Clore Center on the annual Rising Stars tasting experience,” says publisher John Vitale. “This is a must-attend pouring event for newer bonded wineries and a chance for them to gain recognition among some of the most avid consumers and fans of Washington wine.”
This walking tasting event runs from 1pm-4pm and gives guests the opportunity to taste wines from up-and-coming wineries from all over the state. Each guest receives a commemorative wine glass for tasting, a snack tray, and a wine tote to take home their favorite bottles of the day.
“The inaugural Rising Stars was a huge success, and we are excited to make it an annual event,” says Abbey Cameron, executive director for the Clore Center. “Supporting these young wineries by creating an opportunity for them to meet new consumers is the heart of our mission at the Clore Center. We hope everyone who attends finds a few new wines to take home and enjoy!”
