Who wants some wine?

Hip Check and I are putting together a winery tour over in Yakima and Walla Walla. This would be an overnight type of deal on Memorial Day weekend (5/28-29).

Meeting point will be the Safeway in Graham (10105 224th Street E), with a departure time of 8:00 am. This is a great time to stock up on picnic supplies for our lunch meeting at Cooper Winery with the Mid-Columbia MINI Club.

Hotel info:
Walla Walla Vineyards Inn
325 East Main
Reservations: 1-509-529-4360 (call the hotel directly)
SSMINI block of rooms for $55/night

Itinerary and other useful information attached in a PDF. Link below

Wineries on the agenda:
Cooper Winery (meet with Mid-Columbia MINI Club)
L'Ecole No. 41
Woodward Canyon
Reininger
Three Rivers
Waterbrook
Dunham Cellars
K Vintners
Russell Creek
Tamarack Cellars
Kestrel

On Saturday evening, we have a reservation at the outdoor patio of the Southfork Grill, at 7:30. As such, anyone that can RSVP will help us firm up the numbers, both for the grill, as well as Kestrel for picnic lunch on Sunday.

On Sunday, we are figuring to stop in on the wineries out by the airport, starting at about 10:00 am. This is also a good time to get more picnic supplies, as Kestrel doesn't really have a lot of food options, unless you want a fine selection of cheeses.

After Kestrel, everyone is pretty much on your own to find a fun way home. Go as a group, fly solo, it's all in your hands. Choose your own adventure!

We are also working out best to get this info to anyone that would like a copy in hand during the drive. Of course, timing on the agenda is subject to change with little notice, as folks find a winery that they just can't leave (that would be all of them, right?).

I just talked to the Mid-Columbia MINI Club and they are interested in joining us for lunch at the Cooper Winery and some might even want to continue on with us to Walla Walla.

Forgot to temp the palette with wineries we are looking at. Cooper, as mentioned, Kestrel, Reininger, a whole bunch in Walla Walla itself... quite a variety.

Looks like Carol and I are in! We look forward to meeting more members of the club and seeing just how much wine we can fit into Pearl.

Tentative for us but a consideration for sure. Becki enjoys the wine and I enjoy the drive, should be fun for all.

How nice of you to plan this on my birthday weekend. Can't do the overnight but may be able to run with the group for a while on Saturday.

Great idea for a run. Nothing like wine, friends and good times.

Count me in!

So, let's see, a running tally of interest:

Phydeaux
Hip Check
Chili-S
onramp
Tim
catlvr
Kulmini
Kristin (Sat only)
Koolblu

Please RSVP here!

Can we expect that you are all couples, unless otherwise stated? Just want to have some numbers when talking to the hotel. Nothing in stone yet, so you aren't locked into an exclusive contract --- not yet, anyway...

I was born in Yakima! Nancy and I are interested. We made a trip over there a year or so ago and picked up some nice vintages. It's great fun.

It looks like my bride and I are in (just need to confirm the sitter).

One question, I have two friends who each have a MINI and would love to tag along. I've been trying to get them involved in the clubs and they're both intersted in tagging along if it's allowed. One of them has my old MINI S, the other a red justa.

What's the word? Can they tag along?
