Mark Ryan Winery: The Vincent Rosé Release

Board Track Racer Releases The Vincent Rosé

From Mark Ryan Winery

 

SEATTLE, March 26, 2018 — Board Track Racer announces the release of The Vincent Rosé. The 2017 vintage boasts 60% Merlot, 18% Syrah, 13% Cab Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Grenache and is made using the Saignée method.

The Vincent Rosé offers delightful citrus and floral aromas that mirror on the palate. Soft fruit flavors include cranberries, salmon berries, melon, and pear. Bright acidity and honeysuckle combine and linger on the finish. This wine screams summer!

Board Track Racer, one of Mark Ryan Winery’s sister projects, produced its first vintage in 2008 and is named for the wild wood track motorcycle races of the 1920s. The labels for all the wines are inspired by the same era, with great motorcycle-centric graphics—owner and winemaker, Mark McNeilly is a big fan of vintage motorcycles and the freewheeling spirit they convey.

 

Opened in February 2018, the Board Track Racer tasting room is located at 19501 144th Ave F-900 in Woodinville’s Warehouse District. The tasting room is open Saturday and Sunday from 12pm – 6pm, pouring tastes of the Board Track Racer wines, as well as select bottles from both Megan Anne Cellars and Mark Ryan Winery. For more information, call 425.415.3865.

 

Established in 1999 by Mark Ryan McNeilly, Mark Ryan Winery is an acclaimed Washington winery based in Woodinville, just north of Seattle. A largely self-taught winemaker, the first vintages were crushed and produced in garages of friends and family—in the years since, the winery has grown in size, earning respect and acclaim from wine lovers and critics alike along the way. The goal has always been to make delicious wines that stand as true representations of the vineyard from which they come. For more information, visit www.markryanwinery.com.

Woodinville: Board Track Racer Tasting Room

 

Board Track Racer Tasting Room Coming to Woodinville

From Mark Ryan Winery

SEATTLE, February 1, 2018 — Mark McNeilly is excited to announce that he’s opening a new tasting room in Woodinville, this time dedicated to his Board Track Racer line of Washington wines. Located at 19501 144th Ave F-900 in Woodinville’s Warehouse District, the tasting room will open its doors on Saturday, February 24 at 12pm.

Board Track Racer Cellars, one of Mark Ryan Winery’s sister projects, produced its first vintage in 2008 and is named for the wild wood track motorcycle races of the 1920s. The labels for all the wines are inspired by the same era, with great motorcycle-centric graphics—McNeilly is a big fan of vintage motorcycles and the freewheeling spirit they convey. 

 

The current Board Track Racer wines are:

The Vincent Red (Columbia Valley Blend)

The Vincent White (Chardonnay)

The Chief (Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot)

The Shift (Syrah, Mourvedre)

 

With inviting gray walls, blond wood, and a communal table for 12, the Board Track Racer tasting room will have a relaxed, motorcycle and rock-n-roll vibe, like the Mark Ryan tasting room. The space has a glass garage door that will offer guests a peek into barrel storage that is shared with neighboring wineries. Capacity is about 85 making the tasting a great option for private events too. 

“The Board Track Racers wines are wonderfully accessible both in taste and price point,” says McNeilly. “I’m thrilled to have a second Woodinville venue to share the wines!”

The tasting room will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm – 6pm, pouring tastes of the Board Track Racer wines, as well as select bottles from both Megan Anne Cellars and Mark Ryan Winery on rotation. For more information, call 425.481.7070.

Barking Frog: Renovation Planned Early 2018

BARKING FROG KITCHEN RENOVATION SET TO SUPPORT 17 YEARS OF EXPANSIVE GROWTH

Barking Frog house kitchen to get an extensive remodel to keep pace with guest demand

 

Woodinville, Wash (December 6, 2017) – After more than seventeen years, the Barking Frog restaurant at Willows Lodge is set to undergo an extensive kitchen remodel in January 2018 to better serve the growing needs of culinary and hotel guests. The restaurant will close on January 2, 2018, and plans to reopen on February 6th, 2018. During the Barking Frog closure, Willow Lodge will be serving a limited menu in Fireside Lounge for breakfast/brunch, lunch, and dinner and the Barking Frog Mobile Kitchen food truck will be parked onsite, serving hotel guests and visitors a fun, mixed menu on weekends.

“We’ve seen tremendous growth in our food and beverage demands over the last 17 years at Barking Frog and Willows Lodge,” said Denny Fitzpatrick, General Manager, Willows Lodge. “It is our goal to continue to offer an excellent guest experience and we’re excited to reveal a more modern and efficient kitchen to meet the rapidly growing culinary needs of our valued guests in 2018.”

Willows Lodge will continue to offer Happier Hour daily from 4-6pm in Fireside Lounge. In addition, hotel guests will still have access to a limited room service menu for in-room dining. On Saturday and Sunday, the Barking Frog Mobile Kitchen (BFMK) food truck will be parked out front of the hotel serving brunch items such as warm Beignets, Chorizo Burritos, and Grand Mariner Prawns from 9am-2pm. 

Executive Chef Bobby Moore will be overseeing the Barking Frog renovation. Both Chef Bobby and Chef de Cuisine, Chris Smith, will continue to manage operations at Fireside and BFMK during the renovation, as well share behind the scenes of the remodel in January on social media. 

“We are taking the Barking Frog back of the house to a whole new level and I could not be more excited for the big reveal in February 2018,” said Barking Frog Executive Chef Bobby Moore. “This new work space will allow us to continue to innovate and bring guests the best culinary experience.” 

During the kitchen remodel, the banquette along the windows will get a new, updated look to go along with the remainder of the interior which was redecorated in the past year. An expanded pass shelf and kitchen entry will provide a more open experience for guests to get closer to the action in the kitchen. 

Be sure to follow @BarkingFrogWoodinville and @WillowslodgeWA on Instagram for behind the scenes photos of the renovation, as well as Chef Bobby and Chef Chris around town.
