Well, we hosted our first ever remote wine tasting and activity event last weekend! We used to have them here all the time (painting, wreath making, music performances!) and have been bummed to cancel. It’s been too quiet in the tasting room!
But this past weekend we partnered with Yelp Seattle Eastside and Yelp Omaha to host a Home Floral Arranging Wine 101 event. Led by none other than Chief Wine Geek Bob Delf, and Vanessa from EverBloom, this went so well!
During our hands-on workshop, attendees were led step by step on how to design hand tied floral bouquets to achieve effortless looking arrangements. Next, Bob led the class on how to pair wines with classic holiday dishes presenting a white, a rosé, and two red wines from the Northwest Cellars collection.
Sad you missed it?? If you would like us to host another, or if you think of any other events you’d like us to create, we’d love to hear from you! (Just send us a quick email!)
But don’t just take our word for it. See what attendee Pilar had to say,
“You know, I’m a huge fan of wine tastings, but since COVID hit + having a baby literally 2 months ago, we haven’t really had the chance to do it anymore, until today!
Northwest Cellars has a wine tasting kit you can pick up at their venue with 4 different wines to try at home (spoiler: they were all amazing) and we had Bob with us via Zoom to tell us a lot about wine! My fave was for sure the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon.
Northwest Cellars also creates custom wine labels, such a lovely idea for a gift during this holiday season! A bottle of great wine with a pretty label wishing happy holidays to those people you won’t be able to spend time with (ugh, COVID!)
This was such a fun event! We enjoyed it a lot, and we will definitely be visiting Bob at Northwest Cellars for a live tasting soon (pups are welcome! yay!).”
