BLAINE, Wash. – The second annual Northwest Wine Encounter at Semiahmoo Resort and Spa will be staged April 28-30 during a weekend of wine, cuisine, education and interaction with a lineup of luminaries in the Pacific Northwest wine industry.

Scheduled to appear as panelists are winemakers David “Merf” Merfeld of Northstar Winery in Walla Walla, Tony Rynders of Panther Creek Cellars in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and Chris Upchurch of DeLille Cellars in Woodinville. These vintners will be joined by viticulturist Mike Sauer of historic Red Willow Vineyard in the Yakima Valley and celebrity chef/author Roy Breiman. Acclaimed retailer/collector Doug Charles of Compass Wines will serve as the keynote speaker. Andy Perdue, wine writer for The Seattle Times, will moderate the panels.

Registration includes a casual meet-and-greet tasting of wines from some of the Pacific Northwest’s top producers, morning and afternoon tasting seminars, and a wine-pairing gala dinner prepared by resort executive chef Bruno Feldeisen. The five-course meal features winemakers seated at each table.

Cost is $475.
