Join DeLille Cellars in celebrating the first-ever Drink Up Week! The week-long event celebrates anything you can drink: from wine and cocktails to coffee and tea. Visit our Woodinville Tasting Room and The Lounge restaurant for special offers July 25th-31st.
Mention “Drink Up Week” at your tasting reservation at DeLille Cellars July 25-31 and get a special taste of our first sparkling wine, Forget-Me-Not.
Bubbles are what initially brought the founders of DeLille together in the late 1980s before the winery was formally founded. Happily, they have made a return! The 2020 Forget-Me-Not’s firm acid and linear style make it a perfect aperitif with our Pacific Northwest summer fare, with pleasant notes of Asian pear, honeysuckle, green apple, and crushed stone. The effervescence hits the palate broadly and becomes more delicate over time in the glass, with a pronounced minerality and hints of citrus rind that dance on the palate.
Visit The Lounge at DeLille Cellars and try two new cocktails: The Butterfly Effect and the Purple Paradise ($15 each). The Lounge will also be pouring Forget-Me-Not sparkling wine ($14/glass).
