"Museum Blend” label.
"Creating a unique, quality wine was our top priority,” said Chris Bruce, museum director. "By teaming up with a local family winery like Wawawai Canyon, we were able to create a truly premium wine and promote a cause that has been important to us for years.”
"Museum Blend” is a 2011 Inland Northwest red wine produced from 2007 and 2008 vintages. It boasts a rare pairing of 54 percent cabernet sauvignon grapes, 23 percent carmenere and 23 percent petit verdot. It displays a silky, dark berry flavor with a rich finish of spice and cedar.
"Museum Blend” retails for $26 per bottle and can be purchased online at http://www.wawawaicanyon.com or at the Wawawai Canyon Winery tasting room located between Pullman, Wash., and Moscow, Idaho. Hours are noon-6 p.m. Friday-Saturday and noon-4 p.m. Sunday.
Founded in 1994, the Wawawai Canyon vineyard is the first commercial vineyard in Whitman County since Prohibition. Founders David and Stacia Moffett benefited from the help and encouragement of pioneering Lewiston viticulturalist Bob Wing.
