Doubleback Winery Winemakers Dinner: April 26th, 2019

We look forward to hosting Josh McDaniels from Doubleback Winery for a wine maker’s dinner April 26th, 2019 at Coho Restaurant.

Josh McDaniels was born and raised in Walla Walla and at an early age fell in love with the wine industry. It was at Leonetti Cellars that he first witnessed the hard work and beauty that goes into creating a premium wine. Josh cultivated his interest in the industry by volunteering at local wineries and making his own wine as a young teen. He furthered his passion with formal education while continuing to work with his mentor, Chris Figgins of Leonetti. He then traveled to Argentina to intern at Paul Hobbs’ Vina Cobos Winery.

Upon his return from Argentina, Josh was hired as the Assistant Winemaker for FIGGINS where he worked on Leonetti, TOIL Oregon and Doubleback wines.  In 2015, Josh became the Winemaker & General Manager for Doubleback and its sister project, Bledsoe Family Winery. He has been named a “Game Changer of Washington Wine” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, and eagerly works alongside Drew and Maura Bledsoe to take Doubleback to new heights. In 2007, Former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe launched Doubleback as his post retirement project in his home town.

Doubleback has four estate vineyards each with a different soil, elevation and micro-climate. These differences allow Josh to naturally blend Doubleback’s wine to a higher level of quality and create a true experience of Walla Walla terroir. Join us for this remarkable evening of food and wine.

These evenings are always memorable and sell out quickly. Dinner is $55/person for 5 courses and $50 for the optional wine pairing. There is one seating for dinner at 6 p.m.

Why stop with a fantastic dinner when you can enjoy a sumptuous gourmet-style breakfast as well? When you dine at Coho Restaurant for one of our special events, stay at the Tucker House Inn for only $129 per night. The Inn is just a block and a half away making it the perfect home-away-from-home.
