Disclosure – Seattle Pockets was given a pair of tickets to giveaway as well as a pair of tickets to attend.  As always, opinions are all my own. I was already looking forward to this event before they gifted me these tickets. The team behind this event is one of the best in the biz! 


  1. huge fan of red blends, the Bordeaux style Solesce 2006 offering from master blender Brian Carter looks more than worthy


  2. There are many I’m excited to try, but anything Kiona pours (no list on the website of what they’re pouring yet) is always awesome. I also love Domaine Blanc de Blanc in the bubble room 🙂 My favorite part of Blend in the Bubble Lounge, hands down!!
