The Wild Steelhead Coalition has teamed up with Darby Winery, an award-winning winery based in Woodinville, Washington, to launch the Native Wine Collection. To celebrate this thrilling collaboration and the release of these delicious wines, the Darby Winery will be hosting a release party on July 28th, which will feature a fly casting competition hosted by Emerald Water Anglers, live music, a food truck, and of course great wine!
The Native Wine Collection is a fusion of Darby English’s two greatest passions – meticulously crafting premium wines and pursuing and protecting wild steelhead. For each bottle sold, Darby has generously agreed to donate 20 percent of the proceeds to the Wild Steelhead Coalition, thereby offering avid steelheaders the chance to enjoy a glass of some of Washington’s finest wine while supporting imperiled steelhead populations.
The Native Wine Collection, a celebration of Washington’s iconic fish and fine wines, features three delicious wines:
- The 2014 Native Red Wine is a stunner of a first vintage. A blend of Cabernet Sauv, Malbec, Merlot, and Petite Verdot that is seamless with notes of dark cherry, blackberry, sage, and cedar.
- The 2016 Native White Wine will impress with old world characteristics of crushed stone, violets, and Provincial herbs. Sip this beauty all summer and enjoy the silky texture and crisp finish.
- The 2017 Native Rose is a serious rose that you should stock up on for the warm months. Layers of firm peaches, citrus, strawberry, and bright mineral notes are impressively long with resonating floral and spice notes.
Tickets for the release party are selling fast, so make sure to purchase yours today! If you can’t make it to the party or just can’t wait to get your hands on Darby’s delicious wines, you can always go online and purchase a bottle of this exclusive wine collection.
