The much anticipated Taste of Washington is finaly here this weekend! Two days filled with countless tastes from over 200 wineries all over Washington State. Held at the Washington State convention center, this year’s Taste of Washington will allow attendees to sample some of the finest wines they already love, and try something completely new and outside their comfort zone. Navigating the list of vendors might be somewhat of a struggle, not to mention all of the amazing restaurant vendors that will be providing yummy samples of their finest bites; it’s strongly recommended if you’re planning on attending, be sure to make the most out of your two days. Wines will be uncorked Saturday March 31st starting at 2pm for the public and 1pm for the VIP list. There will be seminars presented by restaurateurs, sommeliers, and sponsors for all guests throughout both days. Canalis, the 2011 Washington Wine Restaurant of the year, is presenting a food and wine pairing seminar, forking over their best kept secrets on the best wine to pair with your meals. If you get caught up and one of the booths and miss any of your favorite wineries on Saturday, you’ll be able to repeat your entire experience Sunday afternoon with a 2nd day of sipping and sampling the best of the Northwest. You can even attend Tom Douglas’ seminar on Sunday, (also a food and wine pairing class) and afterwards head over to the Viking Chef’s stage and watch him slave away in the kitchen to create one of his famed dishes right before your eyes. Tickets to the event are $75 for general admission, and $125 for VIP treatment. For more information, or if you’d like to order tickets now visit the Taste of Washington.
