Five-winery tasting room to open in downtown Spokane

Josh Wade, a Spokane wine blogger, will open Nectar Tasting Room in November in downtown Spokane.

At the corner of Stevens and Main, the room will house the operations of five Washington winery satellite tasting rooms, Wade said in a press release.

The five wineries he’s arranging deals with have not been announced.

Wade has been using social media, developing a following through his blog and Facebook page. The new business also allows him to focus on his companion business,, which will focus on regional wineries and related topics.

In a release, Wade said Nectar Tasting Room will be open Thursday through Saturday and plans on live music for the weekends.

“This will be a unique wine tasting room experience with iPads as menus, a comfortable urban vibe, and activities that promote interactive wine education as an extension of the participating winery’s main location,” he said.
