The Southwest Washington Winery Association has announced plans to offer wine enthusiasts scrumptious nibbles and award winning wines during the three day Labor Day Weekend.  Visitors can enjoy a combination of local culinary and enological delights at participating wineries throughout Clark County.

At each stop, sample fresh local cuisine perfectly paired with wines—all within minutes of the Portland/Vancouver metro area. Skip the lines and traffic and stay local for Labor Day while you meet the winemakers at nearly every location, hear their stories, and experience the magic of an emerging wine region. Tasting fees vary by location.

I am a Clark County native. I am Level 2 WSET (wine and spirit education trust)-certified and enjoy pairing wine with my passion for travel and fondness of food. My most prized possessions are the memories of places I've been with my husband, the chance encounters we've been blessed to have along the way and my carry-on bag. I can often be seen around town and in tasting rooms with our two beautiful, double-Merle Australian shepherds, Challenge and Baby Girl.
