“Taste of Washington” is an annual weekend event in Seattle, featuring the wines from Washington state. The wineries come from Yakima Valley, Red Mountains, Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley and everything in between, ranging from small garage operations making less than a hundred cases a year, to established “Prides of Washington” powerhouses such as Long Shadow Vintners, DeLILLE Cellars, Pepper Bridge, and Mark Ryan, who routinely churns out 90+ points in Wine Advocates and Wine Enthusiasts, and can be found in the best restaurants throughout the United States.
The 2012 Taste of Washington is held on the weekend of April 1st, at the landmark Centurylink Field – the home of Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Sounders FC.
Over 200 wineries are in attendance, along with several
key sponsors that celebrate the finer things in life. JZ&F is proud
to be a partner of the prestigious Sotheby’s International and Sotheby’s
International Realty, and to occupy the center booth of the venue.

Maserati of Seattle is also present, featuring their powerful GranTurismo and elegant Quattroporte.
As a natural complement to fine grape juice, some of the finest restaurants in Seattle (such as El Gaucho and the Metropolitan Grill) are also represented, offering delightful bites. The general feeling is reminiscent of la Paulee that I attended in New York a few years back.
