Thanksgiving is coming, and we are starting to think of our turkey wines here in in Madrona. But while we wait for the big feast, we have a full weekend of art and wine tasting lined out. Maybe the two go together.
Saturday we are tasting wines from Piedmont — mostly organic, and several would be prefect for Thanksgiving Day. Plus, we have a Barolo! No more need be said.
