“2010 Red Wine, Chocolate & Triumphs Tour”
On Valentine’s Weekend (February 13 and 14) we will host our 5th annual drive to warm up our Triumphs, and join in the festivity of red wine and chocolate tasting. Since 2005 intrepid Triumph drivers have enjoyed a wonderful time touring, sipping fine red wines (they have white and pink too), and tasting chocolates (yum!).
This year we will head off in a different direction from previous years. Instead of touring Olympic Peninsula wineries, we will visit several wineries in the south Puget Sound area.
Saturday Feb 13th: Meet in Tacoma at 9:45 AM at the Starbucks coffee shop located at 4802 Center Street. From I-5 take SR-16 west toward Bremerton, then take Exit 1C for Center Street toward “Fircrest”. Turn right onto Center Street where you will find the Starbucks immediately on your left.
We’ll leave Starbucks at 10:00 to visit wineries in Tacoma, Olympia, and Tenino, with a lunch stop at the Ram Bighorn Brewery in Lacey. Our final winery visit of the day will include our own private wine tasting party, with a variety of foods and desserts.
Make overnight reservations at the Peppermill Empress Inn in Centralia. Call 877-736-9441, identify yourself as with the Tyee Triumph Club, and ask for the $66.70 AAA rate.
Sunday, Feb 14th. After breakfast we’ll tour a vintage motorcycle museum before touring to wineries in the Centralia, Chehalis, Olympia and Rainier area. A lunch stop will be included in there somewhere.
Come join us. You will have a great time with your sweetheart, and with wonderful friends enjoying three of life’s finest pleasures: Red Wine, Chocolate & Triumphs!
