SEATTLE (MARCH 1, 2023) — This March welcomes back the beloved Taste Washington festival and celebrates Taste Washington Wine Month in a fresh new way.

March is dedicated to showcasing the diversity and variety of Washington wine —from Albariño to Zweigelt, Washington has it all. To celebrate, restaurants, retailers, and wineries are offering special promotions and events to encourage customers to experiment and explore everything Washington wine has to offer.

Providing the perfect setting for exploration, Taste Washington returns to Seattle March 6-13, 2023, with a renewed energy and vision. This year’s festival culminates with the iconic two-day Grand Tasting on March 11 & 12, featuring over 230 wineries alongside dozens of the state’s best restaurants. Favorite events return, including The New Vintage, Sunday Brunch, and the celebrated Seminar Series which calls together some of the nation’s leading wine experts. A robust line up of new and refreshed signature events include Pacific Standard, a spotlight on Washington’s abundance of Pacific Northwest seafood, Dinner Series, a three-night lineup of thoughtfully paired chef and winemaker dinners, and No Thrills! a playful pairing with popular chef’s go-to dishes.

During Taste Washington Wine Month, try a wine that you never knew existed…or just don’t know how to pronounce.
