Popping corks for Mother's Day weekend

Drink Local

This Mother's Day weekend, the wineries within Spokane's self-christened Cork District will be celebrating the occasion by uncorking a bevy of new wine releases, and you can travel from one winery to another to get your fill of pinots and cabernets. What a way to ring in spring and celebrate Mom at the same time. And it's not just tastings, either: There will be food pairings, local artist showcases and live entertainment, including a weekend-long music festival at Bridge Press Cellars. It's a good excuse to explore beyond the downtown core, including outlying wineries in Liberty Lake, Green Bluff and Spokane Valley.
