Seattle Food and Wine Experience

March 1, 2010

Food, wine, beer and cider packed the Exhibition Hall at the Seattle Center.  Appropriately named the Seattle Food and Wine Experience was truly……an experience!     

The Food     

The Wine, Beer and Cider

With my #SWFE hashtag ready to go and my mocked up official tweeter badge I managed to navigate through the elbow to elbow crowds to get a bit of face time with some great wines and the folks behind them.   The crowds though were not my biggest obstacle.  My challenge was that there was so much and so little time.   Here is the short list of a few of my discoveries:

an amazing $10 bottle of Lemberger  ~  @Kionawine

The International Pinot Noir Celebration – upcoming 24th annual event in McMinnville, OR  ~  #IPNC2010  @IPNC

Balboa Winery ~ @mattbalboa

Amity Vineyards Organic Pinot Noir

King’s Estate Next Riesling ~ @KingsEstate

Duck Pond Red Blend ~ @duckpondcellars @desertwindwine

Grand Reve – Series IV ~ @GrandReve

Waterbrook ~ @waterbrook

Alder Ridge

Owen Roe ~  @owenroewinery

Ville Pozzi ~ Nero D’Avola distributed by W.J. Deutsch & Sons, LTD.

Kathy Casey’s new book –  Northwest Table ~  @KathyCaseyChef

Seattle Food Wine Experience proved to be a tremendous display of Washington’s finest foods, wines, beer and cider.   A fun day that certainly left those in attendance with an appreciation for Washington’s unique and influential place in the world of Food.   

Thank you Kathy for the fabulous signed book!  Thanks @Shona425 for your help in getting to the front of the lines.   And thank you @seattlefoodwine for organizing and inviting the “wine tweeters”
