Cedar River Cellars to participate in the 22nd annual Auction of Washington Wines

Mark your calendars for the 22nd annual Auction of Washington Wines taking place Thursday, August 13th – Saturday, August 15th.

Seeing that Cedar River Cellars is currently a small operation, we have chosen to donate an experience to be part of the very first crush of our Northwest winery. Possibilities could include driving out to Eastern Washington to pick up grapes for the 2009 crush, sorting grapes, putting them in to the crusher or help in making adjustments to the must (if needed). Either way, you will be able to experience all of the ‘behind the scene’ action that is putting this show together. Once fermentation starts, we invite you to come back to take sugar measurements, stir up the must, and a few days later press our 2009 red wine.

The 2008 Auction of Washington Wines raised $2,250,000 for uncompensated care at Seattle Children's and the Washington Wine Education Foundation. As our winery grows, we hope that we can offer greater and greater experiences for our Northwest friends and these worthy causes.
