Wine Tastings Tonight: Thursday, February 4

A Haiti benefit and art opening at Picnic, South African wines at Esquin, Lachini at Local Vine, and more.

February 4, 2010

Tonight from 6 to 9, Picnic is waiving its usual $8 wine-tasting fee, asking instead that you donate the money to ShelterBoxUSA’s efforts in Haiti. The event doubles as an opening for painter Sierra Scott’s new exhibit in the store. Ten percent of proceeds from art and wine sold tonight will also go to Haiti.

From 5 to 6:30pm Esquin Wine Merchants’ weekly tasting will feature whites and reds from South Africa. Free.

Lachini Vineyards winemaker Ron Lachini, a really nice guy who makes lovely Oregon pinot noir, will be offering tastes of his wines at the Local Vine tonight from 6 to 8pm. The cost is $5.

The deal at Seattle Cellars is that if you buy a $10 Riedel glass you can bring it back every Thursday from 5 to 7pm for free tastings. This week the store pours “uncommon” grapes: semillon, cinsault, and trincadeira (a Portuguese varietal) among them.

From 5 to 9pm tonight, West Seattle Wine Cellars will be pouring samples from Epicurean Wines, an Australian label.
