“The inaugural Northwest Wine Encounter at Semiahmoo brings together some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest winemakers for an intimate event with wine lovers,” commented Andy Perdue, Master of Ceremonies for the weekend. “Winemakers from DeLille Cellars, Col Solare, Dobbes Family Estate and Betz Family Winery will gather with consumers for three days of tasting, learning about and enjoying great wine and cuisine at one of the most beautiful locations anywhere in the Great Northwest. This will be a treat for all the senses.”

Saturday’s events will include exploratory seminars with winemakers covering Oregon pinot noir, Washington syrah, Northwest white varietals and the Columbia Valley’s exclusive Red Mountain growing region. The evening will culminate with an intimate vintner’s dinner, expertly crafted by Culinary Director Roy Breiman and Executive Chef Bruno Feldeisen, held on the Peace Arch Dock and Tent. The indulgent five course dinner will be perfectly paired with wines from each attending winery. Seattle Times wine columnist Andy Perdue will host the dinner while delivering tasting notes, his keynote address and answering questions from attendees. Guests will get the opportunity to sleep in on Sunday, before the closing talk on Pacific Northwest white wines begins, with winemakers from each participating winery.

About Semiahmoo Resort

Washington State’s iconic Semiahmoo Resort, Golf, & Spa is located on the pristine shores of Semiahmoo Bay and Drayton Harbor, where tide pools and estuaries provide a sanctuary for Pacific Northwest wildlife. Just 45 minutes south of Vancouver, B.C. and 90 minutes north of Seattle, Semiahmoo has recently completed a multi-million dollar restoration inspired by its seaside location. Within Semiahmoo are two dining options: Pierside Kitchen with fresh, seasonally inspired cuisine emphasizing local and regional purveyors and Packers Oyster Bar, where guests can enjoy familiar fare with impressive water views. Semiahmoo’s two golf courses (Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club, designed by Arnold Palmer, and Loomis Trail Golf Club, designed by Graham Cooke) were ranked among the top courses in Washington in 2014 by Golfweek.
