Sip & Stroll
Enjoy the evening strolling throughout the downtown waterfront and savoring sips and tastes at participating locations. Many businesses will stay open late tonight so you can shop while you stroll too!

We will be pouring our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2012 Janaina Sensacao Red Blend.


Spring Barrel weekend is here! We are opening the patio to Premier Pass holders and pouring our limited release Malbec and Red Mountain Nebbiolo. Not a premier pass holder? No big deal we are still pouring our Best of Varietal Cabernet Franc and Double Gold Cabernet Sauvignon. We are offering a multi bottle discount and cases of 2013 Rosé of Nebbiolo at $150 a case! Stop by and see the vineyard with a glass in hand! Cheers!

Kitzke Cellars will be pouring at the Northwest Wine Academy’s Fall Release November 21. Our son Seth Kitzke is finishing up in the production program and will be on hand pouring our 2008 Janaina Sensacao Blend, 2009 Cabernet Franc, 2013 Viognier, and 2008 Method Red Syrah.

There will be graduate wine makers pouring their wines 2-7pm that Friday. Along with the graduates the school will be releasing 5 of their wines just in time for the holidays. Stop by and support local winemakers and a great program.

As you may know a portion of the proceeds from each bottle of Upsidedown Method Red goes to the Chill Foundation. We are excited to be a part of Art on Board this year and help Give Back.



By Chris Shalbot, Seattle, WA: Art on Board is a community-centric organization focused on promoting positivity, creativity, and youth involvement through the action sports and arts communities. Originally started as an entrepreneurship class project at the University of Vermont, Art on Board is quickly blossoming into a nationally recognized, community-based youth development program. By combining the active, creative lifestyles intrinsic to both the action sports and arts cultures, with hands-on community involvement, Art on Board aims to inspire the next generation of creative leaders.

The Art on Board National Tour events are a continuation of the organization’s roots as a University of Vermont entrepreneurship class “Make a Difference” project. Each event is a way to bring the community together for a celebration of creativity and collaboration. The main attraction in each city is a silent auction for one-of-a-kind snowboards, hand created by collaborating artists. Events also feature participation from local culinary artists, live music and live art, along with prizes and giveaways from partnering brands.

Seattle will mark the second of four national tour stops; the first to include a live art auction, Drink Water‘s Pathology Project as well as a skate jam.
