The Grand Tasting: Make a Plan
We always give this same crucial advice to make the most of your Grand Tasting experience. Before you enter the doors, we highly recommend that you develop a plan. Because once there, you will be hit with a massive amount of taste potentials — and it can be overwhelming.
So, make a list of wineries and restaurants you want to visit. But always leave room for some flexibility; chances are something will catch your eye as you walk through the aisles.
And wear comfortable shoes! Do not wear perfume or cologne.
Of note, we suggest tasting and spitting wine or pouring it into the buckets at each booth. However, if you think you might want more than a sip or two, check out hotels in the area because some offer special weekend packages. Otherwise, be sure to have a designated driver, or take cabs or local transit home.
Summary: Taste WA 2024
In conclusion, run, don’t walk, to get your tickets to Taste WA 2024. It will be epic! And, as mentioned, ticket prices increase as the event date gets closer.
