Two Vintners tasting next week, July 28th.

If you've tried wines from Covington Cellars, you've experienced some of the
finely crafted wines from Morgan Lee. Morgan joined David and Cindy at Covington
Cellars in 2007 from Columbia Crest. Two Vintners is his own label, where he
crafts distinct bottlings from some of Washington's best vineyards. These wines
are sold primarily through their wine club, at restaurants and at a few select
retail shops. Swing by the bin between 5:30 and 7 pm next week to chat with
Morgan and sample these limited production wines!
