What makes this event so special is the opportunity to “meet and mingle” with the winemakers as they stroll the concert grounds at Chateau Ste. Michelle winery pouring samples of their wine. Instead of you having to go around a crowded room, table to table getting your wine, the winemakers come to you. How cool is that?

There is an exception to that, if you want to taste barrel samples of the wines being auctioned, you will have to go to the auction area and taste there. Aspiring wine owners will be able to bid on cases of yet to be released wines in the fun and competitive Barrel Auction. The top five bidders for a barrel each get a case of the wine once it is released. The top bidder gets the barrel top signed by the winemaker. It is an excellent way to get a case of wine from some of the best winemakers in the state, support a worthy cause AND get some serious bragging rights.

Since this is a picnic, there must be food and it is wonderful food prepared by the chefs at Tulalip Resort Casino’s acclaimed restaurants. You will find everything from amazing cheese platters to creative appetizers to refreshing palate cleansers to inspired desserts. Yes this is a picnic, but this picnic food is something special and these chefs know how to pair. They can’t predict what you are going to have in your glass but you are much likely to have a wine & food pairing “moment” at this picnic than at most tastings!
