Winemaker Picnic & Barrel Auction

Date: Thursday, August 15, 2019
Time: 4:00 pm
Location: Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, Woodinville



Join us at the largest wine charitable event devoted to celebrating Washington state wine!

Meet the Winemakers

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. 

Grab a Nosh

Great wines deserve food that goes beyond traditional Picnic fare, and food stations placed throughout the grounds ensure you'll find the perfect pairing! Stay tuned for more inforamtion on chefs and menus as we work on the details.

Place your bid!

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. In some cases, these five cases are the only ones of their kind!

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.
