Auction of Washington Wines Spring Dinner Series

There is an exciting experience coming to Seattle for fans of Washington Wine! We’re talking about phenomenal winemaker dinners. What’s the big deal? Well, my friends, these dinners involve five of Washington’s favorite winemakers paired with five talented Seattle chefs including two James Beard Award Nominees from this year! There’s wine and food pairing, obviously. Plus, it’s all in the name of fundraising. So read on for more details about this special Dinner Series happening for one night only.

Presented by the Auction of Washington Wines, the dinner series benefits Seattle Children’s and the WSU Viticulture & Enology Program. “Spring Winemaker Dinners are a great way to connect winemakers with wine lovers”, says Jamie Peha, Executive Director. “We enjoy kicking off our event series with these one-night-only meals highlighting the best of the season in Seattle-area restaurants.” Guests have the opportunity to learn about each wine as they are poured with each course, directly from the Winemaker and Chef who created the pairing.
