During this year’s Taste
Washington festivities, I had the pleasure of attending one of the seminars for the first
time along with my (normally beer drinking) boyfriend. My friend Erin James (of Sip NW and CIDERCRAFT magazines) was

and to hear from the actual producers themselves as well. Oh and the tasting..
you can’t forget the tasting portion! Deee-lish.

on at one of the Sunday Seminars! This post contains my wine highlights from
the Grand Taste, an upcoming post will cover all of the amazing things I
learned at the seminar.

Since we’ve known for ages that love and booze go hand in hand, why not use Valentine’s Day this year for some liquid lovin’? There are a wide variety of Valentine’s Day related wine events coming up, special drink recipes you can concoct, and some wines that are perfect for your other half (or for yourself, not everyone has a Valentine, so spoil yourself this year!). So let’s take a look-see, shall we?
