It’s March, do you know what that means? Beyond our days staying light a little longer and the daffodils starting to push through the soggy ground, it also means that it’s Washington Wine Month.
And what happens during Washington Wine Month? Taste Washington, of course!
This year the event is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, March 23-24. It will be at the CenturyLink Field Event Center — walking distance from the Colman ferry dock.
If you choose to go for two days, the ticket price for general admission is $125, or $80 for one day. Hours are 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Last year we loved that they expanded the event to two days. It gives you a chance to taste more wineries without overloading your tastebuds.
If you want to go all out, there’s a VIP package which includes an extra hour — 1 to 5 p.m. admission — and access to the barrel room, a VIP lounge; a “swag bag” and special giveaways during the VIP hour.
There’s also the chance to attend seminars on Saturday and Sunday, where you can learn about Washington’s wine industry from some of the state’s leaders. Seminars are 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day, and require an additional admission, which varies depending on topic. Visit the seminar page here for more information.
