The 2nd annual Klickitat Wine Alliance Poker Run will be held April 3 and 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.
Players will receive their participation sheet at the first winery they visit. The card they draw at each winery will be recorded on the sheet. Players with the best five card poker hands will win a variety of prizes including overnight accomodations, dinners for two, and private wine tastings at KWA wineries.
Last years event drew hundreds of participants from all over the Northwest.
"It's a very unique wine tour event," said organizer, Joel Goodwillie. "The KWA wineries are close enough to each other to allow the participants to complete their poker hand in one day. It also showcases the Klickitat Wine Alliance and how closely the wineries in the organization work together."
The Poker Run is just one of several events that the KWA puts on throughout the year. Others include the Spring Barrel Tasting, Thanksgiving Weekend Open House, and Harvest Weekend.
Participating wineries are: Wind River Cellars in Husum, Syncline Cellars in Bingen, Marshal's Winery in Dallesport, Cascade Cliffs Winery in Wishram, Maryhill Winery in Maryhill and Waving Tree Winery in Maryhill.
