On Tuesday, February 21, 2012, we are hosting the 3rd annual Exotic Wines Festival, a winter wine tasting event in Seattle not to be missed. And we are talking more than just Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay! With 25 Washington wineries featuring their new “exotic” varietals, such as Mourvedre, Cinsault, Malbec, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc, Roussanne, Viognier and Albarino as well as some interesting blends, guests will be treated to the ever growing array of unique wines from around the State.
While sipping, keep an eye out for cast members from our new show ¡Caliente! mingling, entertaining, and generally being fabulous. Our very own culinary powerhouse Executive Chef, Erik Carlson, has devised some delicious nibbles for those wishing to nosh while sampling delectable wines. What a perfect way to have a fun break from the dreary days of February in Seattle!
Didn’t we say something about drinking for a cause? All proceeds benefit ZinZanni Institute for Circus Arts (ZICA).
