David LeClaire puts on some awesome wine events in the northwest – we’ve attended too many to count and always have such a good time. That’s why I want to tell you about a few events he has planned for the next few weeks, so you can put them on your calendar!
We’ve always enjoyed Sexy Syrah at Salty’s, so we know we’ll have fun at a similar event, The Cabernet Classic, on Oct. 28 at Shilshole Bay Beach Club — a Grand Tasting of an amazing array Cabernets and Cab-based blends. If you love Cab, like we do, we hope to see you there!
So many wonderful Washington wineries will be offering their great Cabs at The Cabernet Classic, including Brian Carter Cellars, DiStefano, Forgeron Cellars, Gilbert Cellars, Otis Kenyon, Smasne Cellars and Windy Point. In addition, this is a fundraiser for CoCA, Center of Contemporary Art. (You can purchase tickets at that linked website.)
Other events that David has planned in the near future include:
- A Grand Tasting of Southern Oregon wineries (according to David, “the guys who don’t make Pinot!”) at the Governor Hotel on Nov. 1 in Portland
- The very popular Sips N Shoes returns on Nov. 8 in Seattle
- Another first-time event, The Grape Cup — “a Husky vs. Cougar Alumni winemaker taste-off for bragging rights the week before the Apple Cup” on Nov. 19
