The closure of the 1928 Gift Shop at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center has created an opening for an additional tasting room at the historic hotel.
Trio Vintners will relocate to the vacated space with a target opening in October, said Karen La Bonte, owner of the boutique winery.
Trio will move from its current spot, 102 S. Second Ave., into the hotel space next to Locati Cellars facing Second Avenue. With entrances from both the hotel lobby and Second Avenue, customers will have easy access for purchasing wines by the glass, bottle or case, La Bonte said.
The new location will continue to boost the array of wine varietals offered to visitors to the hotel, she said. Customers visiting the cluster of tasting rooms in the hotel will be able to experience 15 to 20 different outlets in one location.
For more details or to follow Trio’s move, follow the winery on Facebook or visit the current tasting room 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
