PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Washington state is without a doubt a (not so) hidden gem in the American wine scene. Known for having the perfect balance of Old World earthiness and New World fruit ripeness, Washington state wines are world-class additions to any wine cellar. Some of Washington’s most powerful and amazing wines are being brought to life by equally powerful and amazing women. In this guided tasting led by Erik Segelbaum, explore some of Washington's best wines produced by women winemakers, grape-growers, or viticulturists.
