Nocking Point Wines Launch Party // Walla Walla, WA

At the end of April, 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 vacation but also to attend a launch party for Nocking Point Wines!

Now one of the reasons I found out about this party was because of one of the co-founders, Stephen Amell!  My husband, Steve and I are both into archery.  We started a couple years ago and I love watching the show Arrow.

Nocking Point's co-founders are Andrew Harding & Stephen Amell (who plays Oliver Queen on the TV show, Arrow).  They started it up a couple years ago and early last year opened a new winemaking and wine storage facility and their own vineyard.  April 26, they had their first launch party at the Mill Creek Brew Pub in Walla Walla, WA and we were two of the 200 guests in attendance!

Here's just a few photos from the party that evening... we started off by meeting Stephen Amell & Andrew Harding and getting our photos taken with them!  Then on to wine tasting where we had a chance to chat and meet the winemakers.  It was great getting to meet new people who came from all over to attend the party as well as hear Dancehall Days playing live music for us throughout the evening out on the pub's patio!

Some of these photos aren't great ...we had my camera along and used our cell phones, so the quality will vary... I just wanted to share some fun photos from the evening!
(PS. A couple photos shown below are also from the party photographer, Dean Perraul, who took candids all evening!)
