Taste Washington Grand Tasting – Get Your Tickets

Taste Washington logoWashington State has an amazingly large number of wineries.  800+ wineries.  Compare that to the 273 wineries in British Columbia.  Washington State has much more land available for viticulture.  In BC we are quite constricted by our mountain ranges in the interior.  But we here in BC can enjoy Washington state wines as it is just a short trip to go across the border from Vancouver.  One of the premier events showing off the wonderful Washington State wines is “Taste Washington“, with it’s Grand Tasting on the weekend of April 2-3, 2016.

One thing I really like about the Grand Tasting is that interspersed among the winery tables are restaurant tables.  There will be 65 restaurants participating!  You can grab a nibble from a restaurant table and try it with different wines.  Which wines work well with a particular appetizer?  Time to experiment and have some fun.  Food and wine also should be enjoyed together.

If you like big red wines then this will be a great show for you.  Washington State produces big, round Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah.  For the white wine lover, don’t miss Washington State wineries’ Rieslings, which they are well known for.  Try Chateau Ste Michelle’s Eroica Rieslings if you have a chance.

I’ve attended Taste Washington before, and have written about my experiences on mywinepal.  You can view my previous Taste Washington articles here.

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon. MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master. I met many great wine makers. I love to travel around the world, visiting wine regions and sharing my passion for food & wine with you. Come live vicariously through me, and enjoy all my recommended wines.
