Join us this Weekend 4 Wine Tasting in E WA!

It just doesn't get much better than this! It's going to be another exSLKent top down weekend!

Ten of us will take the scenic route leaving from a Renton early Saturday morning, heading down to Mt Rainier, then up and over beautiful Chinook Pass (as seen below) to Naches, Yakima, Prosser and by Sunday all the way to the Columbia River for a wonderful weekend of sunshine, comaraderie, driving and wine tasting!

We'll have lunch in the historic town of Tieton at an old time diner, Vickie’s Tieton Café. Vickie is 86 years-old and makes old-fashion hamburgers, great French fries and outstanding milkshakes. Next it's onto Desert Wind, Vine Heart, Pontin Del Roza, wineries followed by Airfield Estates, Milbrandt Vineyards, Olson Estates, Willow Crest, and Thurston Wolf tasting rooms.

Dinner will be at Picazo 7 Seventeen
Wine Bar and Restaurant Saturday evening.

Sunday will start with a fun run through the Horse Heaven Hills to the Columbia Crest Winery, perched on a bluff above the mighty Columbia River. After our winery visit we’ll take a scenic run along the Columbia River. On returning to Prosser we’ll visit Mercer Estates, Hogue Cellars, and
Kestrel Vintners. It''ll be a late lunch and then head west and back to reality...

Two days of serious driving, enjoyable company, and fine wine tasting!

It's no too late to join us if you find you are free. The Best Western Inn at Horse Heaven still has rooms and will honor the SLK room rate. Call (509) 786-7977 and identify yourself as a member of the Mercedes SLK Club. Or consider hooking up with us for a day trip, either Saturday or Sunday.

Be sure to let us know where you'll be joining us!

One day I may need to make the trip up to Washington for one of these meets.

Will be fun to see some of you in September for the Vegas trip!

Enjoy.

Yes, one day you need to!
Meanwhile, we will keep teasing you with all our fun adventures and photos of great times had by all...

I'm sure we'll have a fun group willing to make the drive to Vegas to meet others with similar passion. We plan on meeting up with you Cali guys outside LV.

It's a guaranteed fun time!

Gah - you *have* to stop these awesome trips! I'm so jealous, stuck in wet, rainy, and cold London!

LOL
you could get yourself over here and join us sometime...!
there's always at least one passenger seat open

Seattle's weather is much like London's but 90 minutes away is an entirely different climate with over 300 days of sunshine a year. E WA is nearly desert, ummm except for the hundreds of wineries we have...
