On September 21st 2008, Idílico staged a feat seldom repeated in history. The 1200 pound bull stunningly braved through his unfortunate predicament in the top Barcelona ring and earned a pardon. A joyful end for a magnificent creature. Salud!
Idilico is the only winery in Washington focusing exclusively on Spanish varietals grown in the unique Washington State vineyards. Spanish varietal wines are the most pleasurable wines around. Who doesn’t love a deep and structured Tempranillo, a juicy and luscious Garnacha or a steely acid driven Albariño?
Washington vineyards are ideally suited to grow the finicky Spanish cultivars. Contrary to popular belief, wine regions in Spain are not balmy and endlessly sunny. In fact most top growing regions in Spain best resemble Washington State. Dry desert conditions, scorching day time temperatures with huge temperature swings at night all wrapped up in a short growing season and frosty winters.
As the saying goes: “Nueve meses de invierno tres meses de infierno” (Nine months of Winter three months of Hell). Yep..Sounds like Eastern Washington.
Where to buy
Normally, our Idilico wines are only available in stores and restaurants around the PNW, East Coast and several countries around the world. But most of these are currently closed, and we think you should have access to the Spanish varietals that you love!
Idilico is a sister brand of Pomum Cellars, and for the time being you can purchase your favorite Idilico AND Pomum wines on our website here. We can ship to most states, or you can pick up at the winery.
