Yes! A Wine Club Dinner to Write Home About

Monday, September 14th, 2009

All Cave B Wine Club Members…

October will forever more be the month when you can look forward to a Cave B event just for you…this year we kick off what will be our annual Wine Club Harvest Dinner Weekend for our growing number of Cave B Wine Club Members on Saturday, October 17.  This is a weeked of drastically reduced Cave B Inn room rates,  a paired Wine Club Dinner to top all Wine Club dinners in the intimate, rock-lined Cellar, the first-ever Film in The Cellar, multiple sophisticated and fun hands-on wine-oriented tasting activities, brunch at Tendrils, and more.  It’s a chance to meet other wine club members, spend great quality time with Winemaker Freddy Arredondo, eat a fabulous meal by our new Tendrils Chef, be awakened to some tremendous wines presented by Cave B Winery, and all in all feel pampered, refreshed, educated, and stimulated.

For all the details, please visit, and click on the Wine Club Harvest Dinner Link.  Cave B Inn rooms are going fast, so make your reservations soon!  This is an event hosted by Freddy and designed especially by him for all of you…it will be a real treat.  We look forward to hosting each and every one of you.

Harvest Festival: Right Around the Corner

Monday, September 14th, 2009


It is, amazingly, almost that time of year again:  our annual Harvest Festival (sixth annual, this year) runs October 2-4 at Cave B Estate Winery.  The big day full of all Harvest Festival activities is Saturday, October 3rd.  And the best thing?  All activities on the 3rd are free.  There is a price for the BBQ and wine tasting, but, if you live within Grant, Kittitas, Chelan or Douglas counties, kids 12 and under receive their lunch for free…not a bad deal at all!

And truly the best part of the Festival is the family-friendly nature of the event…this is the Cave B event to bring your boyfriend, your mom, your best friend and your kids.  Three guest experts are lined up:  Amy Mumma, CWU’s Wine Program Director, who will give several fantastic wine seminars, Greg Atkinson, Wine and Food author and columnist extraordinaire will do three interactive cooking demos, and a Cave B favorite, Wine Trails Northwest author Steve Roberts will be on hand to sign and sell his book.  Plus, Harvest Festival will also give us a chance to introduce our new Tendrils Chef to all of you–he will turn out a fantastic BBQ, and will also head up several cooking demos throughout the day. 

And what about for the kids? –Pumpking carving and cookie decorating, tractor-driven hayrides, apple juice-making with an old-fashioned apple press, and much more.  And, for kids and grown up kids-at-heart, there’s the ever-popular Great Grape Stomping Competition–an absolute not-to-miss!

There’s a great special on Cave B Inn rooms for the weekend, as well as a bevy of wine specials at the winery, so read about it all by visiting, then plan to come on out!  The weather has been nothing short of spectacular, the grapes and apples are rich and dark with color, the leaves are changing to their fiery hues, and we’re ready to give you a weekend of good, pure fun.  We look forward to seeing you!

Yoga & More Weekend at Cave B Inn Coming Soon!

Friday, September 4th, 2009

Come and join us for a fabulous Autumn retreat in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. Wine tasting, hiking, yoga (for all levels), delicious cuisine and a room with a view all in one weekend. Depending on the weather, we will have the yoga sessions poolside or in a large open room above the vineyard. Body Atelier Nicbfit is located in Seattle, Washington and we are excited to host this unique weekend. I am the founder of nicbfit and will be your guide. I have been involved in the yoga and wellness community since 1996. My beliefs for being healthy start with attitude, motivation and a strong desire to create a change in lifestyle. Setting realistic, specific and time sensitive goals is a great start. The most difficult challenge is the beginning. Once you start your path, find ways to reward yourself with the successes you have made. Surround yourself with people you trust, admire and respect. They will be there when you need them. Enjoy the journey-this is all for you. I hope you will join me for a weekend of fitness, food and new friends!
