Wine tasting events can be one of the most fun ways to connect with a date or a friend. You don’t have to be an expert wine taster to enjoy sipping different varietals and you’ll leave with some new favorites in mind!
Taking a trip to Walla Walla specifically for wine tasting is a fun experience in itself, but if your February is as busy as mine has been, you’ll be excited to hear that you don’t have to go far at all to taste a wide range of wines from Walla Walla.
Tickets are available now for the Walla Walla Wine Tasting at McCaw Hall in Seattle Center on February 25 from 5:30pm to 8pm! Get your tickets here.
In addition to discovering wineries I’m not familiar with, I’m excited to specifically experience pours from Dusted Valley (so good!) and Seven Hills winery.
My suggestions for a attending a wine-tasting event:
- bring a water bottle – stay hydrated!
- have your phone charged – take photos of labels you like the most
- when sipping your wine when you talk to the winery folks at a particular booth, stand a bit to the side so they can answer questions while they pour wine for the next person in line
- have a bit of food before your go – this event is just light hors d’oevres
Here’s a list of everyone who will be there:
