Mix and mingle with Washington wine makers at 20Something, Fremont Studios, November 21 from 6-10pm.
75 Washington wine makers will be roaming the event, offering attendees the opportunity to enjoy a taste of wine and to ask questions of the wine maker. The wineries will be highlighting their wines that retail for under $30. Come taste some unique Washington wines, as well as classic wines that set the standards for Washington. From the small boutique wineries like Lullaby Winery to the likes of Chateau Ste Michelle, participants will have the incredible opportunity to taste an incredible spectrum of Washington wines. Take a look at the participating wineries and their wines.
Wine and food are natural partners and attendees will have lots of delicious food to enjoy with their wine. Sample succulent seafood from Ray’s, Waterfront Seafood Grill, Ponti’s Seafood, Ivars, Muckleshoot and more. Want something hearty to pair up with those big red wines? Sample some hearty Guiness stew or Uli sausage. Chocolate and cheese are classic pairings for wine and there will be plenty at 20Something to enjoy. Check out the restaurant list and their dishes.
A lot of wine drinkers are often intimidated by tasting events, but this is not a “wine snob” event. It is an opportunity to taste (and spit) a lot of wine to help you find wines that you like. If you want to learn more about wines and wine tasting, you can. The Geek Lounge will have booths set up with informations and experiences so you learn more about wine, the grapes and wine produced in Washington state and wine/food pairing.
Do you love wine but your best gal/guy is strictly a beer person? No worries. Pike Brewing will be on hand pouring some tasty brew. There will be non-alcoholic beverages available for the designated driver and for when you know that you have reached your limit.
