Wine and dine at Taste Washington

Two weeks from today marks the start of Taste Washington, the “ultimate wine experience” sponsored by the Washington Wine Commission.

This annual event provides an opportunity to meet more than 200 winemakers and 75 restaurants. Public events begin on Saturday, April 4, with a series of seminars at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center that will include a blind taste-testing of Washington state wines and a forum to find high value picks.

The next day is the Grand Tasting—a chance to sample reds, whites, rosés, and dessert wines from small to large wineries. Sure, I’ll be sipping, but what has this restaurant reviewer most excited is the bevy of bites from favorite eateries in the area. Look for ceviche from Salty’s, Wagyu beef tartare from Tulalip Bay, duck wraps from Racha, and brisket sliders from bin vivant. Add in live jazz, chef demonstrations, and a dessert and coffee bar, and you’ve got the makings of a magnificent afternoon.
