Explore Spokane's Cork District this weekend, just in time for Mother's Day

Drink Local


Taken a tour of Spokane's Cork District lately?

If not, this Mother's Day weekend is one of the best times to do so, as it's host to one of the city's three annual wine release weekends. The three-day event includes special tastings, more than 30 individual wine releases, food pairings and live entertainment at participating tasting rooms and wineries spread across downtown, Spokane's officially designated Cork District.

Throughout the weekend, these tasting rooms host guests daily from noon to 5 pm, though many of the venues continue operating into the late evening. In addition to the downtown wineries, Spring 

Release Weekend includes a few outlying winery "pockets" in Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, Green Bluff and on the South Hill.
