Spring has arrived and we’re counting down the days until that needle rises above the perfect little 80° tick to stop and drop everything to sip rosé on the porch!

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite local items that we’re excited about adding to our long days sipping wine. Add your favorites in the comments {local or not} and we’ll do our best to check them out!


1.The 2015 Grand Klasse Reserve Rosé, this fancy little bottle worked it’s way out of our cellars in record time last year and is moving quickly again. Perfectly polished and light on it’s feet, this rosé of Grenache will leave you with only one regret; that you didn’t buy another bottle. Grab a case and save 10%, purchase online or in the tasting rooms, but don’t delay, rosé won’t wait another day.

2. Fun, festive wine glasses – these stemless gems are from World Market, but just use your go-to glass and drink up.

3. Snoqualmie Ice Cream – made in the PNW, famous for their ice cream, custard, gelato and sorbet, and 96 4+ ratings on Yelp has us screaming for Snoqualmie ice cream! They JUST opened their tasting room for the season and it’s worth checking out if you’re local. If the trip is a little too far, Snoqualmie is widely distributed at local grocers, it’s worth the effort to seek it out.

4. Olive + Poppy rosé key chain – California products from the heart of the Sonoma/Napa wine country, available in the Ellensburg tasting room. Your mom/sister/friend would LOVE their jewelry, high quality with lots of color options and priced within reason.

5. Stop by and see our neighbor, Claim Clothing, after you pick up your wine in Ellensburg & check our their adorable selection of new clothes and shoes for a warm summer in Ellensburg. Say ‘hi’ to Megan who graduated from CWU and loved our little town so much, she plans on staying a while.

6. Bigger, bolder, dare we say ‘better’? Nothing pairs with rosé like a classic bowl of chips and salsa but if you’re tomatoes haven’t quite bloomed check out these four fruit salsas that have us asking for “seconds please”.
