Seminars run concurrently each day.

Saturday (April 2) seminars include:

WASHINGTON VS THE WORLD 2016
France’s Rhône Valley is home to some of the world’s most sought-after and prized wines. Here in Washington, we believe our Rhône-style wines can compete with the best in the world. But can they really? There’s only one way to find out: by blind tasting a selection of the state’s finest against some of the best the world has to offer. How does Washington really stack up? Come decide for yourself.

Moderator: Doug Charles, Compass Wines

TASTING WASHINGTON: EXPLORING WHAT WASHINGTON WINE TASTES LIKE AND WHY
A skilled blind taster can identify where a wine is from based on certain clues that region is known for. For example, people will often say that a certain wine “tastes like Washington.” So, what is it that people are tasting? What is the common thread that connects the state’s wines? In this seminar, we will explore the idea of ‘Washington-ness’ and see if we can nail down exactly what those factors are that make the state’s wines so distinct and memorable.

Moderator: Bruce Schoenfeld, Saveur magazine

KING CAB! AN EXPLORATION OF WASHINGTON STATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Cabernet Sauvignon is seen by serious collectors and everyday wine drinkers alike as the Rolls-Royce grape of the wine world. Once viewed as being in the shadows of California, Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon is increasingly being recognized in its own right by critics and wine professionals around the globe. What makes Washington Cabernet different? Can the state establish its own identity for the grape in a world crowded with Cabernet? We’ll find out while sampling a selection of top wines from around the state.

Moderator: Sean P. Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast magazine
