    I wish I could be there this weekend. I love Goosecross Cellars wines and the winery folks too! This weekly feature is a great idea — I’m going to use it when I plan my next visit to your neck of the vineyards. I also am going to borrow the format to blog about Washington State wine events … and Cheers!
