Guest Services Manager, Col Solare Winery | Chief Judge, 2019 Cascadia Wine Competition
The Future of Red Mountain AVA
This episode is Part 1 of 2 with April Reddout, who is teaming with wine knowledge. Listen to her passion for the Red Mountain AVA, her thoughts about its future on the world stage and how Col Solare Winery is a shining example of what this region has to offer.
April Reddout started in wine in 2008, curious and ready to learn. A part-time job in a tasting room in Prosser led to full-time, which led to management and the desire to keep learning. April enjoys helping other people learn about wine in an approachable and non-intimidating setting and strives for each guest experience to be positive and inspiring.
April judges on panels for Great Northwest Wine, Winepress Northwest and the San Francisco Chronicle. She enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for great wines and telling the story of Washington wine, in particular.
Current Rosé style trends
April also shares her insights about everyone’s favorite pink drink. She discusses style trends, why there really is NO Rosé season, price point and she takes us through a tasting of the 2017 Shining Hill Rosé from Col Solare.
