Eagle Harbor Wine Co. accolades

Sorry we’ve been light on content this week, I was out of town in New Orleans for a work conference over the weekend and Mary’s been slammed with her various community commitments, so we haven’t had a chance to keep the blog as active as we’d like.

As I’ve written before, I follow a number of Washington wine blogs — and even some international wine blogs — to see what’s happening in this wonderful world of wine. One of those blogs is the seattlepi.com reader contributed The Pour Fool: What to drink from the world and the Northwest. Author Steve Body writes about beer and wine, so if you’re interested you should check him out.

His most recent post caught my attention because it’s all about Bainbridge Island winemaker Hugh Remash and his 2008 releases of Syrah and his Cab, called Raptor. Remash is the owner and winemaker of Eagle Harbor Wine Co. which has a tasting room in Winslow. The winery is located in the “copper tops” business park off Sportsmans Road.

Here’s the link to Body’s review of Remash’s two wines.

While we’re talking about other people’s wine blogs, I also found a recent post from Sean Sullivan on the Washington Wine Report interesting. It’s all about this year’s harvest and Sullivan interviews some of the state’s most respected winemakers to get their thoughts on what’s coming off the vines this year.

Read his post, 2011 Harvest Report – Sept. 29th Edition, here.

Eagle Harbor Wine Co. gets Seattlepi.com nod

Steve Body, who writes the reader blog “The Pour Fool” at seattlepi.com, highlight’s Bainbridge Island winemaker Hugh Remash and his Eagle Harbor Wine Co. in a post today. He highlights Remash’s Cab — which Mary and I tasted last month during the winemaker weekend.

Body’s review of the wine is more detailed than what we had to say about the Cab. We focused more on the Syrah and Condor, which were the two wines that caught our attention. I also really liked his Goldfinch — which I’ve been contemplating going back and buying.

Here’s our previous post.
