Episode 1 | Follow urban vintner Bart Fawbush’s expansion to eastern Washington

Bart Fawbush, Bartholomew Winery

On this episode of Decanted, Bart Fawbush, owner and vintner of Bartholomew Winery talks about his journey into winemaking, his move from Seattle to Kennewick, WA. Bart shares his thoughts on pricing, learning from mistakes and dedication to every aspect of wine production.

First Annual POUR Event

POUR is put on by the Seattle Urban Wineries Collective and held at the old Rainier Brewery. This is an opportunity for us urban dwellers to experience many under-the-radar wine producers in one place and at a good ticket price. We talk wine event tips and the bottles we felt stood out.
