William Church Winery Event And Tasting At The Cork And Tap

Friday night The Cork and Tap, in Coeur d'Alene, held a tasting event featuring wines from the William Church Winery located here in Washington State. In addition to the wine, winery owners Rod and Leslie Balsley were on-hand to answer any questions patrons had.

We tasted four wines starting with a white:
  2013 Viognier
  2012 Bishop's Blend
  2012 Syrah
  2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

All four of these wines from the William Church Winery, were hands down, the best wines we've ever tasted. In fact we enjoyed them so much we brought home a bottle of both the Syrah and the Cabernet Sauvignon to review on in the coming month. 

Turnout for the event was a bit light, but that gave time to talk one-on-one with Rod. I learned a great deal about wine and wine making, it was a lesson I'll soon not forget. 

I've personally been on a quest to find a red wine that I like most of my adult life. Until The Cork and Tap opened it's doors I've had no success at all. The Cork and Tap owner's Mike and Trish, both know wine and I've learned more the last few months than I have the previous 30 years. 

The Cork and Tap offers daily wine tasting and they have four beers on tap at all times. Paying them a visit is worth the trip from Spokane to Coeur d'Alene. Keep an eye on their social media accounts for the next event, or heck just stop on buy.
