The 2008 and 2009 wines will be released into the market over the next year or so, and among them are some outstanding wines, which will reward your efforts to find them." We have them this Friday!
We will be tasting these wines: Olsen 2008 Chardonnay, Olsen 2008 Red Blend, Olsen Estates 2008 Petit Verdot 2008, Olsen Estates 2008 Merlot, and Olsen Estates 2008 Malbec, all under $20!

Winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla
Forgeron Cellars Wine Tasting
Saturday March 24, 2012 1-3 pm
Forgeron is the French word for blacksmith and their winery/tasting room is located on the former site of a blacksmith shop in Walla Walla. The word "Forgeron" also has a slightly different meaning in French, referring to artisans who build with their hands combining experience with an extensive knowledge of their trade. This is the vision that winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla brings to the winery each day, crafting complex, food friendly wines from vineyards chosen for maturity and flavor profile.
We will be pouring Forgeron Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon along with Forgeron's new Blacksmith label Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah, all great values! Marie-Eve makes really great wines.
We start at 1 pm this Saturday, so don't miss the tasting.
The wines will be available with a 20% discount on case purchases. Of course, Good For You Wine Club members receive a 15% discount on all purchases.
