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.

Northwest Wine Festival

What to do when confronted with hundreds of wines on the shelf? You could ask the wine shop owner or the wine steward if there is one, but the best way to choose a wine is to taste it yourself. Of course, you can always consult the Seattle Wine Blog, too. The Northwest Wine Festival, put on by the Seattle Wine Society, is a royal opportunity for you to taste over 200 wines from Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. And you get to compare your notes with five internationally known wine judges, too.

On August 5th, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Seattle Wine Society will hold its 32nd annual Wine Judging of Northwest wines. There will be dinner and dancing as well as a raffle for a basket of wines from wineries new and old. The raffle will benefit Farestart which trains homeless people in the culinary arts and will provide a scholarship for a Farestart student to attend the culinary program at South Seattle Community College. Ticket will cost $65 for society members and $75 for non-members. Tickets and more information are available at:

It's going to be a great event. See you there!
