SEATTLE (March 1, 2024)—Calling all Washington Wine fans! March is Taste Washington Wine Month. Anchored by the beloved Taste Washington event, wineries, restaurants, and retailers are joining in to celebrate #WAwine all month long.

Taste Washington Wine Month is all about exploration, showcasing the diversity and variety of Washington wine. It’s supported by retailers across the state each putting a unique spin on in-store promotions, a robust media campaign, and collaborative social activations. Local restaurants are also jumping on board to celebrate Washington wine with special dinners, glass pours and more. New this year is a Community Events Page featuring promotions and events taking place across the state.

“March is the perfect month to get out and try a new Washington wine, or explore one of our many wine regions,” said Kristina Kelley, Executive Director of the Washington State Wine Commission. “From Cabernet Sauvignon to Rosé to Sparkling wine, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy here in Washington.”

JUST ANNOUNCED. The perfect way to celebrate this tasty month is at Taste Washington, which just unveiled the highly anticipated chef lineup for Dinner Series and Sunday Brunch.

For Dinner Series, attendees can anticipate an extraordinary convergence of culinary creativity, where renowned chefs will curate sensational menus that reflect the essence of the Pacific Northwest’s rich culinary tapestry. Each multi-course dinner will be paired with wines carefully selected to complement and elevate each dish.

You can look forward to Wine Enthusiast’s Top 50 Best Restaurants in America, Aaron Tekulve of Surrell teaming up with Maximillian Petty of Eden Hill, who has received multiple James Beard semifinalist nods. Joining from out of town, Zoi Antonitsas (Portland) who competed on Top Chef and was named Food & Wine Best New Chef is teaming up with the talented Seattle-based Dan Mallahan of Driftwood. We’ll end Dinner Series with another west coast collaboration; Monique Feybesse of Tarts de Feybesse (San Francisco), the talent behind one of the Bay Area’s most sought-after bakeries traveling up to Seattle to join forces with Madeline Sperling of Homer, which has made the best restaurant list in both Seattle Met and GQ Magazine.

Closing out Taste Washington will be Sunday Brunch, featuring unparalleled panoramic views of the Seattle skyline at the stunning Columbia Tower Club. Attendees can raise a glass with a birds-eye view of the city as they enjoy an unforgettable brunch spread from the talented Thomas Cullen of Columbia Tower Club and Shawn Niles of The Fat Pastor.
