Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

WACAP -World Association For Children & Parents

Went to the WACAP Auction last Saturday night. What a nice event! What a great organization! Children and grownups of all colors and persuasions coming together to support WACAP's efforts to help orphans from countries all over the world - China, Russia, Thailand, India, the U.S. and others. WACAP provides adoption services, but also supports orphans in about a dozen countries. Check out their website: Auctions such as this don't happen without a lot of hard work on the part of many volunteers. For the third or fourth year Pam and Sandi made it happen, taking time from their busy schedules as homemakers and moms to help kids other than their own.

The auction was held at the Sheraton where the food was amazingly good for banquet food, and the wine was quite good, too. Diane had a glass of Red Diamond Merlot before dinner. Chateau St Michelle Chardonnay was poured liberally throughout the evening, as was Clayhouse Cabernet Sauvugnon.

The usual auction suspects were in evidence - Leonetti, Quilceda Creek, Andrew Will, Chateau St. Michelle Meritage, an assortment from Freemark Abbey, and a small selection of world wines. I managed to cop some Quilceda Creek.

The evening was capped for us by a brief visit with Tom Captain who Co-Chaired the Poncho Wine Auction this year, which is a great segue into our next post.
