Drinking Italian Inspired Wines, Martedi Winery

Standard

Friendsfavz Tv, Friends Sharing Favorites

 

“Martedi” means “Tuesday” in Italian, and the name has a special meaning for the Miglino brothers, who have a tradition of gathering together on the second Tuesday of each month for wine and pasta. Joseph Miglino is the winemaker at Martedi Winery, and he and his brother John are the primary owners of this Italian-inspired-winery, in Woodinville WA.

They specialize in Italian varietals, and their signature wine is a spirited Sangiovese! Joseph has a long and varied career in the wine industry and wine making. He is going to share his story and some of his knowledge of the nuances of wine with us on this episode.

Friendsfavz TV – Summer Wines with Kestrel Vintners

Friendsfavz TV – Summer Wines with Kestrel Vintners

Welcome Friends!

Friendsfavz Web Show host and special guest this week is Kestrel Vintners ! Carolina Warwick, the associate wine maker, invited us into the Club Room at the Woodinville tasting room and we enjoyed tasting three of their many splendid wines. We tasted the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, 2012 Cabernet Franc, and my personal favorite the 2010 Mourvedre.

Feel free to stop by one of their three tasting rooms in Woodinville, Leavenworth or Prosser and pick up a bottle to bring home to enjoy while you watch the web show posted below.  Listen to Cat as she shares information about the Estate Vineyards, the delicious Kestrel wines and how special it is to be a club member. The wine club members are always the first to taste many of the wines as well as be invited to special events!

On my first visit to the Kestrel Woodinville Tasting Room, I was greeted by warm friendly smiles and all the people working were so welcoming. I was invited to sit at the wine bar in the club room.  As I  looked around, I saw a room full of people having a good time visiting with friends. I meet some wonderful people myself and one of them, Michelle, even joined us for our filming event!

We had such a great time filming and visiting with each other, a true girls night out!  I hope you can join us and be a part of the audience for one of the upcoming filming events. Please check the friendsfavz group page on Facebook for future filming dates and locations.  If any of you have a suggestion for a great winery location, please comment below.

So many wonderful women contributed to the evening to make it so special, and I want to thank them all. Julie from Chive Catering served some wonderful appetizers that paired perfectly with the wines Kestrel featured. Beautiful Butterfly Photography took some amazing photos throughout the evening! Thank you Yamileth for coming and photographing all the fun we were having!
