Taste Washington says
Taste Washington features educational seminars led by top national wine personalities, sommeliers and producers that dive headfirst into what makes Washington State a world class winegrowing region. From tastings to interactive panels, these events are entertaining, enlightening and in high demand.

Join us on Saturday & Sunday, April 2 & 3 from 10:30am to 12:30pm at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle.

Seminars run concurrently each day.

Sunday (April 3) seminars include:

A SENSE OF PLACE: THE ROLE OF VINES AND MAN IN THE VINEYARD
While producers making vineyard-designated wines all say they are looking to express a particular site, wines from the same vineyard often taste quite different. Where does vineyard influence stop and winemaker influence begin? We’ll take a deep dive to the root of it with some of Washington’s finest winemakers who are making very different wines from the same vineyards.

Moderator: Bruce Schoenfeld, Saveur magazine

THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE: LESSONS LEARNED FROM A LIFETIME IN WASHINGTON WINE
Unlike Old World wine regions, many of Washington’s “pioneers” can still be found walking the vines and bottling their wines. The state is home to numerous wisdom-filled winegrowers and winemakers who have dedicated their lives to the state’s industry. In this seminar, we’ll tap the knowledge of a selection of these esteemed elder statespeople, learn how the industry has evolved, and hear what lessons they’ve gleaned in their journeys. And to top it all off, we’ll taste some of the most-prized fruits of their labors.

Moderator: Sean P. Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast magazine

RIESLING ON THE RISE
Riesling has turned many sommeliers and wine drinkers into life-long worshippers because of its versatility and inherent ability to express a sense of regional identity. Long one of Washington’s most popular and planted grape varieties, Riesling is known for its huge range of varied styles – from bone dry to dessert sweet. It is also known for its chameleon-like abilities to show varying expression across vineyard sites. Here, we’ll jump headfirst into the world of Washington Riesling and find out what makes the wines so distinct and why they’re snapping up more and more fans every day.

Moderator: Chris Tanghe, MS, Vinum Wine Importing & Distributing
