Run, Don’t Walk, For Tickets To Taste Washington

What are you waiting for? Taste Washington is around the corner, and you do not want to miss this explosion of tastes, fun and education on March 28-31 in Seattle.

For more than a decade, we have called this event —  the country’s largest single-region wine and food extravaganza — “the Super Bowl of Wine Events.” But no, that title is not the official or unofficial name. We just think it fits perfectly.

This year, Taste Washington features more than 235 wineries, 65 restaurants and some of the nation’s top chefs. For example, one of the favorite activities, The New Vintage, welcomes Seattle star chefs Edouardo Jordan (JuneBaby), Ethan Stowell (Ethan Stowell Restaurants) and Rachel Yang (Joule) coupled with chef friends from around the country including Chris Cosentino (Cocksomb, San Francisco, CA), Vivian Howard (Chef and the Farmer, Kinston, NC), and Gregory Gourdet (Departure Restaurant + Lounge, Portland, OR).

At the Grand Tasting, take in the magic of Washington wines – those you know and love, and other gems you will discover. As well said by event partners Visit Seattle and Washington State Wine: “Explore, indulge, imbibe, and you can confess your sins later.”
