This class will put the wines of WA state in perspective for you. You’ll learn what makes WA wines unique (the climate, the soil, and the Big Flood for starters…) in comparison to other wine regions while tasting through some great examples of what WA wines have to offer.
While most of us appreciate the high quality of Washington wines, few of us really understand why wines from here are special. In this class we will learn why, for example, the sometimes dramatic fluctuations between day and night temperatures significantly affect the character of our wines, how the lack of water gives winemakers a huge advantage and how and how a great flood helped define our vineyard land. And, of course, we will taste through some of the more interesting wines of Washington. You will never look at Washington wines the same way again.
We require a minimum 48 hour notice prior to the start of the class to cancel your reservation. If a cancellation is made after 48 hours, we'll charge your card for the full amount of the class. Thank you for your understanding.
Seattle Wine School was founded by Richard Kinssies, owner of Wine Outlet and Greenlake Wines & Tasting Room. Every Monday Richard offers a wide variety of classes and seminars on wine and wine related topics to both consumers and wine and food professionals. In addition to these classes, Kinssies has provided training to restaurants and members of the wholesale and retail wine trade and has been retained by the French government to instruct the wine trade on the wines of France.
