It looks to be a week of beautiful Autumn weather here in Madrona. The skies are clearing and the leaves are rustling across the ground. After you finish raking up a few of them swing by the wine shop and reward yourself for the hard work. We’ve have a great line up to suit the season. But first, before we get to that we are sampling,, there are a couple of things to mention.
Thursday is Halloween!! Madrona Wine and other neighborhood businesses will be handing out candy to trick or treaters. We’ll also have a little treat for the adults so dress up and come on by. This is also the last week to get a look at our current art show. Between Summer and Fall oil studies by Suzanne Brooker. Now for the wines:
