Taste Washington

What could be better than a day sipping the best Washington wines and nibbling on delicious local treats? Last Sunday, Taste Washington offered both and more, in an excellent, well-organized event that offers the largest selection of Washington wine at one function.

I like to call it the Super Bowl of Washington wine happenings!

To make the most of Taste Washington – with more than 200 wineries and 60 restaurants – you had to go in with a plan. Ours was simple – try pours from wineries that were new to us, in addition to new releases, plus visit as many of our wine industry friends as possible to say hi. Could we help it if our friends insisted on pouring their favorites for us too?

As a result, we have a list of our winners of the day. Don’t get me wrong, this does not mean that we think they are the best of Taste Washington  – every winery poured up to three wines and there was no way – even with spitting or spilling – we could have gone through the entire lineup!

You can find that list of our favorite wines and restaurant treats in my article in Seattleite Magazine. No point in duplicating efforts, eh?

And our parting words – mark your calendars now for Taste Washington 2012. This is the best event of the year in Seattle!
