Time has been flying by lately, we had an amazing time during Spring Break on the Washington State coast and now we're back home with a pile of laundry, laughs, memories and sick. Unfortunately I am unable to attend Taste Washington this weekend, I was looking forward to sampling all the local wines and mingling with wineries and the amazing group of people that come to Taste Washington.
Taste Washington is held at CenturyLink Field Event Center and features wineries from all over the state. Did you know Taste Washington is the nation’s largest single-region wine and food event. With fantastic new wineries opening all the time, Washington is also one of the fastest growing wine regions in the world. Come taste your favorites and experience something new. So this event is a not to miss one. If only I wasn't sick, ugh.
The many seminars teach you everything from pairing to blind tasting and comparing Washington to the World! You can see a breakdown of the 2014 seminars to see what I'm talking about. On top of that The Alaska Airlines Chef’s Stage features top local and national chefs cooking live on-site in a state-of-the-art kitchen built right on the Taste show floor. Bring your wine glass and watch the exciting cooking demonstrations from our talented chefs.
Taste Washington would be great for a date or even a girls night out! There is something for everyone along with trying new things and expanding your wine knowledge. Grab your tickets!
Taste Washington Assists in the Mudslide Disaster Relief
One of my favorite things to see about an event is how they give back to the community. When I found out Taste Washington was pairing with the Red Cross to assist in the Mudslide Disaster Relief I was impressed!
Visit Seattle and the Washington State Wine Commission, which partner to produce the event, are facilitating American Red Cross of Snohomish County cash collection stations on the show floor; 100 percent of these donations will go directly to the mud slide disaster victims.
All American Red Cross cash contributions from this event will remain in Washington, offering care and guidance to affected families as they begin to move forward with their long-term recovery. Donations may also be made to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10, or donate other amounts to the fund by visiting www.redcross.org. Each year, the American Red Cross immediately responds to about 70,000 natural and man-made disasters in the U.S., ranging from fires to hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents and explosions. These vital disaster relief funds are immediately available in times of disaster, such as the Oso mudslide.
If you plan on attending the event be sure to give back and enjoy!
