5th Annual Caveman Roar & Pour 5K Trail Fun Run & Wine Tasting Event. This year it is on St. Patrick's Day and we are feeling a "wee bit" excited! The Wenatchee Irish Dancers are going to entertain you on our new Summer Music Theater stage, while Cave B Winemaker, Freddy Arredondo, a former Chef, grills up your Pre-Ordered Bratwurst or Veggie Burger lunch for some post-race fun! (bring your own blanket). Cave B Estate Winery is a beautiful place located in Quincy, Washington, next door to the famous Gorge Amphitheater overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. This trail run wanders through the Cave B Familigia Vineyards, through the sage dotted desert plateau and along the cliffs overlooking the Columbia River. It is an event for all levels: walkers, joggers, runners - a fantastic training run, beautiful views and a chance to get out and enjoy the majesty of the land and nature.  The 5K Trail Fun Run starts at 11 AM.  At 10:15 AM prior to the Caveman 5K Roar and Pour Trail Fun Run will be a Carol's Cabernet Loop Kid's Run.

Even if the exercise part isn't your thing, we'd love to have you join us as a fan or a volunteer roaring and cheering on the participants and sampling our wonderful award winning wines. Throughout the afternoon we will be pouring our fantastic Cave B Estate Wines featuring several new vintages on the event day Saturday, March 17th, 2018.
