Join us at the largest wine charitable event devoted to celebrating Washington state wine!
The Winemaker Picnic delivers the unique opportunity to choose from over 100 wines, and in most cases, the wine is being poured by the Winemakers themselves. Hear their stories, ask about their approach to winemaking, and find out what makes the wine they are pouring for you so special.
Great wines deserve food that goes beyond regular picnic fare, and the local chefs and eateries of Seattle will be on hand to help you find the perfect pairing!
Serious about your wines? The Barrel Auction is your chance to taste barrel samples and be one of five winning bidders to secure a case of a future release wine, before it’s available anywhere else.
Take your pick from 30 wineries, and taste the wines being offered. Talk to the winemakers about their wines, the aging process, the grapes, and ask them to explain how they will change before they are bottled.
Delayed gratification not your thing? Then place your bid at the Silent Auction instead where you can choose from an array of unique wine packages and experiences.
