Wine O’clock Wednesday: Dino Wine-Oh!

Pacific Science Center combines fine wine with the Pleistocene Age.

“How would you like to be described: balanced and brilliant, coarse and corky, ripe and rounded, earthy and elegant, tart and tannic, or velvety and vigorous?”

That was the opening sentence in a snappy press release I received that ensured I would read more. And I’m glad I did – because it’s time for the 5th Annual Dino Wine-Oh! First, how can anyone resist that name? Second, have you ever tasted wine while hanging out with dinosaurs?

For one night, you can get your wine on and your science on at the same time! Just head to Pacific Science Center (PSC) on May 19 from 6-9 p.m., when more than 20 northwest wineries will offer pours, accompanied by tasty appetizers and live music by DJ WD4D. Dino Wine-Oh! is part of PSC’s Science with a Twist after-hours event series.

Half an hour earlier, a special VIP presentation about Malbec features Sommelier David LeClaire, founder of Seattle Uncorked and Wine World. It’s bound to be an entertaining learning experience – Malbec is quickly becoming a standard varietal crafted at Washington wineries these days.

Some of the participating wineries at Dino Wine-Oh! are Columbia Winery, Covey Run, Edmonds Winery, Patterson Cellars, Red Sky Winery, Skylite Cellars, Mt. Baker Vineyards, Woodhouse Family Cellars, Willis Hall, Stomani Cellars, Nota Bene Cellars, Joel Gott, The Hogue Cellars, Chandler Reach, Chatter Creek, Bunchgrass Winery, Bandit Wines, Brian Carter Cellars, Pacific Rim and OS Winery.

Tickets for the tasting are $25 for the general public, $20 for Pacific Science Center members.  To attend the Malbec presentation, tickets are an additional $10. Please note that this fun-filled evening is for adults 21+ only.

On May 19, entertain your intellect — and your palate!
