Nocking Point Wines // Spring Release Launch Party!

This past weekend, Steve and I took a few days off and took a road trip down into the States to Walla Walla, Washington.  We were mainly taking time off for a mini-vacation, but also to attend a launch party for Nocking Point Wines!

I found out about Nocking Point and the launch party because of one of their co-founders, Stephen Amell (who plays Oliver Queen on the TV show Arrow).  Stephen Amell and his buddy, Andrew Harding started up Nocking Point Wines and early last year opened their new winemaking and wine storage facility and their vineyard.  This past weekend on April 26th, they had their first launch party at the Mill Creek Brew Pub in Walla Walla, WA.  Steve and I were two of the 200 guests in attendance!

Since Stephen Amell is on "Arrow" and Nocking Point Wines has an "archery related" name... I figured it was only suiting to share some photos from our time in Walla Walla with all of you on the blog! :)

Left the launch party with some sweet swag!  Wine, coffee, glasses and more!  Even brought along the 1st Season of Arrow for Stephen to sign!
The next morning... heading back to BC, Canada... took some "artsy" photos of ourselves. Haha!
