Women Stars of Food and Wine
February 8, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$50
SEATTLE — More than 20 women winemakers and winery principals return Sunday, Feb. 8 to Seattle’s prestigious Columbia Tower Club and pour for the public as part of the second annual Women Stars of Food and Wine.
The event gathers female winemakers, chefs and sommeliers from 2 to 5 p.m. on the 75th floor for a joint project by Uncorked Sommelier Services and Seattle Uncorked. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Women’s Funding Alliance.
A ticket costs $55, and the event will feature stations of women winemakers and chefs paired together. Tosh Remchuk of UncorkedSommelierServices.com said she created the event to put wine and food enthusiasts face-to-face with many of the best and brightest women chefs, sommeliers and winemakers in Washington.
There will be stations where chefs serve small bites paired with a specific vintner and her wines. Meanwhile, sommeliers will bring wines from their cellar, walk the floor and pour them for patrons, who will be asked to guess if the wine is Old World or New World as well as describe the wine’s aromas and flavors.
The Women’s Funding Alliance was founded more than 30 years ago with a goal of build leadership, drive community investments and accelerate systemic change to improve the lives of women and girls in Washington state.
