Horan Estates Winery will hold a grand opening celebration Saturday, Nov. 16, at its newly remodeled tasting room in Cashmere.
The grand opening with appetizers, big prize give-aways, and, of course, flowing wine, will be from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. The tasting room is also open from noon to 5 p.m. Fridays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays.
The tasting room is in a new space but still in the same Mission District building where it has been the past two years. The winery's production and storage room are also located in the former fruit storage building at 207 Mission Ave.
The winery is owned by Doug and Diana McDougall and Beth and Dennis Dobbs. Doug McDougall first planted grapes on Frenchman Hills near Royal City in 2000. The winery's first vintage was released in 2003. Beth Dobbs, Doug's cousin, marketed the wine. Doug's mother and Beth's father were both members of the Horan family. The winery and each of its wines are named for Horan and McDougall family members, pioneers in the Wenatchee Valley's apple industry.
The winery specializes in three award-winning red wines: the HVH Red Blend, CWM Syrah and Horan Estates Cabernet Sauvignon. New labels for each of the wines will be unveiled at the grand opening.
