Catch the Crush Weekend

Posted: Updated:

TRI-CITIES, Wash.--13 is the number of wines Tagaris Winery will be introducing during the 21st annual catch the crush weekend.

Along with house favorites such as the 2006 Malbec and Counoise, Tagaris is releasing two new red wine blends. They are 2005 Red Roan and BoarDoe. According to Tagaris staff, introducing 13 wine varietals at one event is unprecedented. Winemaker, Frank Roth says being a young winery has its advantages.

"We were fortunate to be able to kinda lump everything and bring out 13 stellar wines all at one time," says Roth.

Catch the Crush weekend is September 29th and 30th. Columbia Crest, Oakwood Cellars, and Preston wines are just a few of the wineries taking part. Help celebrate the harvest with grape stomps, winery tours and live music. And who can forget wine-tasting.

Admission is FREE, but remember to bring your own wine glass!
