On Saturday, October 25, and Sunday, October 26, enjoy great wine, costumes, pumpkins, wine discounts, and fun during a themed weekend in eastern Washington’s Rattlesnake Hills American Viticultural Area (AVA) appropriately called Hallowine. According to the group’s funky press release, “Chills and thrills await you on the haunted trail. Stop in at each of the wineries to discover what treats they have available, or what ‘costumed persona’ will serve you. There could be wine-bar witches, pirates talking funny, or vampires dribbling wine (not blood) down their chins as you approach the tasting bars. But don’t be afraid. ‘Ve only vant you to taste our vines!’ Best news is there is no charge—Hallowine is complimentary to the public.
Here are some of the supernatural occurrences at the Rattlesnake Hills wineries during this special weekend:
Bonair Winery’s staff will greet you in their scary best for some wonderful Hallowine specials. Come in costume for a fiendishly good deal. During the month of October enjoy a sampling of our wine and table grapes, fresh from our estate vineyards. Our fall tapas menus will continue Friday, Saturday and Sunday through the month of October.
Eaton Hill Winery will have “the HalloWine works” during this special fall weekend – costumes, pumpkins, soup and their award-winning wines. Stop in 10 AM – 5 PM.
Masset Winery will host some of the best, big pumpkin carving you’ve ever seen for HalloWine. Internationally known artists will provide the carvings – you’ll have to see these up close to believe they weren’t carved from fire and brimstone! See them in action on October 17 & 18, and again on November 1 & 2. The carved creations will be on display from mid-October through Thanksgiving. For a preview, visit www.masterpumpkinscultor.com
