Join our largest wine and culinary event on the beautiful grounds of Chateau Ste. Michelle! You’ll get an opportunity to meet winemakers, or you can choose from over 100 wines at the tasting bars. Try your hand at a game of chance or step up to place your name on the board to bid on a case from 30 Washington wineries in the Barrel Auction.
Date: August 11, 2023
More details coming soon!
The Winemaker Picnic is the perfect opportunity for you to meet and mingle with the winemakers behind the bottles! Whether you’re an expert or wine curious, you’ll meet winemakers who will “roam and pour” you a taste of what’s in their bottle, or you can choose from over 100 wines at four tasting bars.
Serious about your wines? The Barrel Auction is your chance to taste barrel samples and be one of five bidders to secure a case of future wine releases!
Talk to the winemakers about their wines, the aging process, the grapes, and ask the winemaker to explain how the wine will change before being bottled.
When you have tasted the wines, place your bid. Watch your bids closely! Every bid placed after yours must be higher, and only the top five bids for each lot will stay on the board.
The highest winning bidder of each lot will receive a commemorative barrel head donated by Tonnellerie Quintessence!
Challenge your pairing skills by indulging in some local flavor from some of the best chefs around town! Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
