We all have a story about our first experiences with wine but what about bungholes? I had no idea that's the term used when you are cracking open the barrel to add something or take-out. At this moment, it's about to be poured out all across the Valley so below you'll find a hit list but first. How have you been sipping? Maybe it's just been the sacramental wine or the occasional store-bought box so far. You need to know when it comes to the Pacific Northwest, spring brings much more than the birds, bees, apples, and beer. The spring barrels are about to be cracked and the love and tender care put into these grapes turned into wine is something you've got to taste so grab your crew and create your route because events and tastings are about to be popping up all over the place!
