Fairmont Olympic Hotel Celebrates Taste Washington Wine Month with 3rd Annual Event Series

Publish Date: 20-Jan-2017

Seattle, Washington Friday, January 20, 2017

Every March, Washington State Wine (WSW) – the organization that represents all wineries and vineyards in Washington State – honors the ever-growing Washington State wine industry with a month-long celebration of tastings, pairings, promotions and events. To celebrate Taste Washington Wine Month 2017, the Fairmont Olympic Hotel will host their third annual wine event series. The events will run throughout the month of March, and will include unique complimentary wine tastings with some of Washington’s best winemakers:

  • March 2 with DeLille Cellars & Upchurch Vineyard
  • March 3 with Betz Family Winery & Quinta Essentia Winery
  • March 9 with Maison Bleue Winery & Spring Valley Vineyards
  • March 10 with Chateau Ste. Michelle & Woodward Canyon Winery
  • March 16 with Elsom Cellars & L'Ecole N° 41

Each of these evenings, from 4:30pm to 7:00pm, two wineries will each pour two wines for tastings. The events are open to the public and will take place in the Fairmont Olympic’s lobby lounge. Guests can taste a variety of wines while listening to local musicians and enjoying an extended happy hour of seasonal bites and share plates.

Visitors will also be able to purchase the wines by the glass in the lobby lounge, giving wine lovers the chance to sip on top shelf wines that rarely are available by the glass. The Olympic culinary team will be pairing appetizers from the lounge menu with a different wine from each evening, in case guests are looking for paired recommendations.

For those looking to make this a fun weekend getaway or just an overnight excursion during Taste Washington Wine Month, The Fairmont Olympic is offering our special Washington Wine Month package which includes luxury accommodations and a bottle of Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Mourvedre, which is only available to purchase for wine club members, as well as guests of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. Packages start at $255 and can be booked online from February 25 through April 8 of 2017.
