There’s a great new Washington wine event happening in March called Sip of Snoqualmie! Presented by the Snoqualmie Casino, the event will benefit Encompass, an organization with programs that “encompass the family support needs of an entire community.”
The event on March 14, 2009, includes a showcase of Washington wines, an opportunity to speak to representatives from local wineries across the state, delicious appetizers from the casino, a silent auction and — my favorite — a wine cellar raffle. The cost is $50, and all proceeds will benefit Encompass.
A select number of VIP tickets ($150) will also be available for “the ultimate wine tasting and educational experience.” What that means: a sit-down, educational food pairing and tasting with Cabernets from around the world. After a two-hour private tasting, VIPs will join the other wine enthusiasts at the main event.
I’ll update this post when the list of participating wineries is available.
So think about this — support a good cause and taste great Washington wine while visiting the area’s newest casino. I hope to see you there!
