Savor the season’s most enticing celebration of local food, wine & the people behind the magic.
The region’s most delicious event is just around the corner; have you bought your tickets yet? In its biggest showing yet, Taste Washington celebrates its 20th anniversary from March 23 through 26, uniting nearly 300 wineries, 70-plus restaurants, an impressive lineup of esteemed national chefs and a huge crowd of food- and wine-loving attendees ready to raise their glass.
An expanded lineup this year stretches far beyond the popular Grand Tasting, offering four jam-packed days. Draws include super-exclusive wine pours at the VIP Red & White Party at AQUA by El Gaucho on Thursday, March 23, and early access to Pike Place Market on an all-new morning food tour.
Sip with fellow party-goers in The New Vintage’s trendy Rosé Lounge (think music, more than 40 wineries and 11 chef stations), and explore the bounty of the Pacific Northwest alongside farmers, chefs and winemakers at Taste Washington on the Farm (Friday, March 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.), with fun-filled visits to Tahoma Farms and Ox Bow Farm & Conservation Center.
Those attending multiple Taste events will want to take advantage of The Connoisseur festival pass, for four days of VIP access to signature events ranging from the Red & White Party to the Grand Tasting.
