Seattle Wine and Food Expo coming up

February and March are great months for wine and food in Seattle. That’s when the Seattle Wine and Food Experience and Taste Washington events are planned.

The Seattle Wine and Food Experience is Sunday, Feb. 26 from 12 to 5 p.m. at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. More than 100 wineries are expected to be there pouring, and many of Seattle’s top chefs and restaurants will be serving up some of their best dishes.

While Washington’s wines will be featured, it looks like Oregon wine will be the focus of the day. Oh and for those of you who like more than just wine, beer and ciders and distilled spirits will also be showcased. For more information on the event, check out Wino Magazine’s online article. Tickets are $49 in advance.

Taste Washington will be held over two days this year, Saturday March 31 and Sunday April 1. General admittance both days will be from 2 to 5 p.m.

After spending almost 7 hours there last year, we love the decision to spread the event over two days. This allows visitors to map out what wineries they want to visit and not feel rushed, or as we experienced, frazzled by the end of the day after trying so many wonderful wines.

Like last year there will be more than 200 Washington wineries showcasing their wines inside the Centurylink Field Event Center at this year’s event. Tickets for general admission start at $99 for the weekend, or $75 for single day admittance. There’s also VIP packages, $125 for one day, $150 for the weekend. Visit the event website for more information on the wineries, restaurants and other offerings.
