K Vintners is a relatively new Washington winery that we just love! Charles Smith, the winemaker is a little eccentric (actually, he's an entertaining iconoclast, especially when it comes to winemaking!).

"...K Vintners rocks with Washington Syrah." - Wine Spectator
"Top Ten Syrah in America" - Wine and Spirits
"These wines offer fascinating layers of richness" - San Francisco Chronicle

I've written about Charles (here's my description of my first encounter with Charles) and we've hosted a tasting featuring his wines! My second encounter with Charles was much calmer - he's a character and a really good guy!

Back Street Bistro is a wonderful restaurant. The food will be topnotch and so will the wines!

Doug Watts and Cat Oster, owners of SOPO (South Portland Wine Company) will also be on hand!
