March is Taste Washington Wine Month

1:35 pm Wine

 Just around the corner is Taste Washington Wine Month, a March celebration of Washington state wines with an abundance of tasting events, winemaker dinners and discounted wine specials at retailers across the state. This event is organized by the Washington Wine Commission to increase awareness of our state’s magnificent wines.

Stores such as Fred Meyer and QFC, Costco, Haggen/Top Foods, Larry’s Market and Safeway will hold special Taste Washington Wine Month promotions. Restaurants across the state will also feature Washington wine tastings, food and wine pairings and winemaker dinners. And wine bars such as Vino Bello, The Local Vine and Purple Cafe  are holding special tastings, too.

The month-long celebration is the prelude to the annual Taste Washington wine and food festival, held April 6-8 in Seattle, and featuring  850 wines from 200+ wineries.

It’s going to be a busy and fun month!

    Margot — a quick fix on the dates for Taste Washington. The weekend is actually April 5-6. There will be educational seminars on Saturday and the great tasting is on Sunday. More than 850 wines from 200+ wineries, plus a bunch of terrific food from local eateries. See you there!
