2019 Seattle Wine and Food Experience

Submitted by on November 16, 2018 – 8:43 amNo Comment

Seattle Wine and Food Experience, WashingtonThe Seattle Wine and Food Experience takes place February 21 through 24, 2019, with four epicurean events.

The eleventh annual Washington State weekend of local tasting and sipping includes “Comfort” (February 21), “POP! Bubbles & Seafood” (February 22), the “Grand Tasting” (February 23), and something new: “Sunday Supper” (February 24).

“Comfort” kicks off the weekend in Sodo Park, 3200 1st Avenue South, Seattle, Washington, at 6 p.m. Tickets are $55. Think: “feel-good foods and crafty brews” from mac and cheese to burgers to fried chicken. Indulge with sweet and savory bites from local gastropubs and taverns while sipping on craft beer, cider and spirits. Tasty features include a french fry bar, desserts, and specialty cocktail pairings.

“Pop! Bubbles & Seafood” finds a new home this year at The Sanctuary, a new downtown venue at 811 5th Avenue, Seattle, Washington. Beginning at 6 p.m., it highlights Pacific Northwest seafood with fresh shucked oysters, salmon, and crab. Tickets are $85. The evening will feature more than 30 sparkling wines from around the world including: west coast sparkling wines, Spanish cava, French champagne, and Italian prosecco plus seafood-friendly white wines and reserve reds.

The “Grand Tasting” will take place at Bell Harbor International Conference Center, 2211 Alaskan Way, Seattle, Washington, featuring more than 30 chefs, 100 wineries and dozens of beer, spirit and specialty food purveyors. General admission ($95) is from 2 to 6 p.m.

“Sunday Supper” will take place at Block 41, 115 Bell Street, Seattle, Washington. Some of Seattle’s top chefs will come together to create a once-in-a-lifetime dinner experience starting at 5 p.m., with each chef serving up a course as part of the meal. Heads up: this will be the most “high-end” event of the SWFE weekend (tickets are $195), with a prix fixe, multi-course meal along with wine and cocktail pairings. After dinner, guests take part in the “Chefs After Party” from 8 to 10 p.m., mixing and mingling with the chefs and producers with music and late night snacks.

More than 275 leading wine brands, craft brewers, cider makers, distillers and chefs participate in the Seattle Wine and Food Experience weekend. Needless to say, the entire weekend is a “21 and older! event, and all admitted must show valid ID.

Tickets for all four events are available online.

The Seattle Wine and Food Experience, sponsored by Seattle Magazine, benefits Northwest Harvest, Washington state’s only nonprofit food bank distributor with a network of more than 380 food banks, meal programs, and schools. Through this network, they provide more than 2 million meals every month.
