I don’t know about you, but this crazy weather we’ve been having makes me want to curl up inside and sip on a delicious glass of red wine while listening to some smooth jazz. Well if you’re like me and craving a little wine time, you’re in luck! The newly renovated Fairmont Olympic Hotel is celebrating it’s 3rd annual TASTE Washington Wine Month event series throughout the entire month of March! Washington is famous for their Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris white grapes and if ordering red keep your eye on the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Syrah. Today there are more than 750 wineries, but back in 1970 only 10 wineries in all of Washington State.
You can experience complimentary wine tastings* at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel with some of Washington’s best local wineries. So sit back; sip some of the best wines Washington has to offer while listening to live local music and enjoying an extended happy hour in The Terrace Lounge.
Tastings will be Thursdays and Fridays from 4:30pm – 7:00pm that are open to the public, and the schedule for this year’s series is as follows:
- March 2 with DeLille Cellars & Upchurch Vineyard
- March 3 with Betz Family Vineyard & Quinta Essentia Winery
- March 9 with Maison Bleue Winery & Spring Valley Vineyard
- March 10 with Chateau Ste. Michelle & Woodward Canyon Winery
- March 16 with Elsom Cellars & L’Ecole N° 41
It really doesn’t get much better than that. Oh wait it does! Don’t feel like driving home after these wine events? Book Washington Wine Month stay package and you can “take the elevator home.” You’ll receive guaranteed upgrade upon check-in with a bottle of limited addition 2012 Chateau Ste. Michelle Mourvèdre, which is only available to wine club members and guests of the Fairmont Olympic. Packages start at $255 and can be booked Saturday, February 25, 2017 through Saturday, April 08, 2017.
You’ll also be able to purchase the wines by the glass in the lobby lounge, giving fellow wine lovers the chance to sip on top shelf wines that are rarely available by the glass. The culinary team will be pairing sneak peek appetizers from their new lounge menu with a different wine from each evening.
Side Trip Alert: Just 30 minutes away, Woodinville Wine Country features over 100 wineries! Something for every discerning wine palate.
