Milbrandt Vineyards Fund Raisers to Support Alzheimer’s
Research Set for Weekends of Sept. 23-25 and Sept. 30-Oct. 2
It’s that time of year again. On consecutive weekends (Sept. 23 through Sept. 25 and Sept. 30 through Oct. 2) Milbrandt Vineyards will be releasing the newest vintage of its Coeur Cause Sparkling Riesling to help raise funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
Upon arrival, all guests will receive a greeting pour of Coeur Cause Brut Riesling, and guests affected by dementia (and their caregivers) will be given a rosebud.
Ten percent of every bottle of this special Riesling sold at all three MIlbrandt tasting rooms through the end of the year will go to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Washington State.
These special Coeur Cause weekends will feature towering champagne glasses, flights of six wines (reds and whites) and delicious food creations provided by local vendors at each location.
The celebration will also feature luxury raffle prizes that include the chance to win wine country gift baskets, restaurant certificates and golf excursions. Door prizes will be given to the best sparkling or blingy wardrobe accoutrement.
Admission for the event is $30 per person/$15 for Milbrandt Wine Club Members. However, admission fees will be waived with the purchase of two or more bottles of Coeur Cause Sparkling Riesling.
Reservations are required, so make sure to call (509) 888-2236 to let the folks at Milbrandt know which of the winery’s three tasting rooms – Prosser, Woodinville or Leavenworth — you would like to visit and, of course, let them know what day and what time you will be there. All three tasting rooms will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on Coeur Cause Weekend.
