Virtual Event Collaborators

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the two remarkable women who have partnered with me on this event.

Laura Huston of Belle & Bottle

The virtual tastings I am organizing would not be possible without the aid of Laura Huston of Belle & Bottle. Food and Wine recently named Belle & Bottle one of the best wine clubs in America. What a ringing endorsement! I can’t say I’m surprised, though, with the access she’s gained to limited production selections. Plus she has a Bubbles Club! As for this event she says, “Belle & Bottle is excited to partner with these accomplished women as we continue to spread the word about the quality of Washington State wine.”

Purchase wines for this and future virtual tastings (shhhh… a Billecart-Salmon event is in the works) via the Belle & Bottle website. Select one or the bundle, it’s up to you.

Kat Rene, The Corkscrew Concierge

Houston based Kat Rene of Corkscrew Concierge also deserves a big round of applause. She is such a fervent advocate of Washington wine, I knew she would be the perfect partner on this virtual event. Of our state’s wines she muses:

“Tasting wine from Red Mountain was one of those “aha” moments for me. I don’t drink a great deal of Cabernet Sauvignon and I was convinced that I would never love Syrah. Red Mountain changed that for me. I was like “who knew?!” It does an amazing balancing act between power and elegance.”

Kat is not only a Certified Specialists of Wine, but also earned the Wine and Spirits Trust Level 3 Award in Wines passing with Merit.

During our virtual Washington wine tasting, we’ll share:

  • How Red Mountain wine converted a Syrah hater to a Syrah fan.
  • Stories behind the wines and where they come from.
  • What foods to serve with these wines to make stay at home life better.
  • Pro tips on keeping your bubbles bubbly.

Pre-registration is required for this experience. To taste along during the event, be sure to order your curated Washington Wines from our event retail partner, Belle & Bottle. Allow enough time for the wines to arrive and rest prior to the event (bottle shock is a real thing). The price of admission does not include the wines.

If you find a wine you like, you can purchase more for the upcoming days at home or to gift to friends and family for the holidays. Plus, take comfort that purchasing these wines supports small, locally owned businesses!
