2018 Saturday Seminars
In the world of wine, two highly prized certifications stand above all others – Master of Wine (MW) and Master Sommelier (MS). We’ve gathered an esteemed group of the nation’s top professionals in what promises to be a highly engaging, entertaining and educational experience that won’t be forgotten. Taste through flights of top wines from Washington and around the world with a panel of MW’s and a panel of MS’s. Learn what it takes to earn these titles, understand how they tackle what’s in the glass, and capture some tricks for your own toolbox. Let the masters be your guide.
To be considered a ‘world class wine region,’ Washington’s wines must be built to last and stand the test of time. Join us as we present some of the rarest and oldest wines ever assembled at Taste Washington. We’ve dug deep into the cellars and have chosen a classic selection of wines from some of the state’s most storied producers. Hear from the winemakers themselves, and experience an exploration of wines that will bring years of bragging rights at this once-in-a-lifetime tasting.
With its vines in sight of a snow-capped volcano, Celilo Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge is not only jaw-droppingly beautiful, but has become one of Washington’s Grand Cru vineyards. Consistently producing some of the most vibrant and unique wines in the state, and with a line of winemakers around the state fighting for its fruit, Celilo has stormed the world stage. So what is it that makes Celilo so special? Join us as we take a deeper dive into this esteemed vineyard with those who walk its vines, and taste the electricity for yourself.
