Taste Washington-Tickets On Sale Now!

Another fabulous annual weekend wine event in Washington state is Taste Washington, from the Washington Wine Commission, on April 5 and 6 at Qwest Field. The Grand Tasting on Sunday features 850 wines from more than 200 of Washington’s fine wineries, each pouring up to three of their wines. More than 75 Seattle-area restaurants also will be on site serving tantalizing dishes.

In addition to tastings, this don’t-miss event is a great opportunity to learn more about the state’s wine industry — Saturday is packed with seminars by wine makers, enological experts and even wine celebrities. One seminar that I don’t want to miss is an ode to Columbia Winery’s David Lake, one of the most influential wine makers in Washington, who helped guide this state’s industry to its current worldwide status. 

Other exciting seminars feature Gary Vayernchuk of Wine Library TV fame and Riedel CEO Maximillian Riedel who will lead of tasting of wines in various glasses.

We had the pleasure of attending Taste Washington Media Day last week, so I have lots more to write about this great event. But I wanted to start now by encouraging everyone to get their tickets now!

We hope to see you there — Cheers!
