Happy birthday to Eric’s sister Sonja

Finally, Eric Granstrom wanted to wish his kid-sister Sonja a happy birthday…

Happy 50th Birthday Sonja Granstrom

Eric and his wife Marion will be headed to Western Washington after lacrosse tomorrow to help Sonja celebrate her 50th birthday. She’s become quite the wine-lover recently and they’ll be stocking her shelves with the Wenatchee Valley’s finest.

By the way, if you want a great selection of local wines without having to run around to all the wineries or tasting rooms, head to the Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce in downtown Wenatchee. Sandy Appel is a font of information and can provide tastings there as well. Cheers and have a great weekend!
