Want to Learn Wine Blending?

…Or just taste a bunch of food and wine? Check out the Blend event on September 12.

August 10, 2010

Learn the art of the blend for the bargain price of $15.

Reps from 40 wineries will show up at the Bell Harbor Conference Center on Sunday, September 12. The occasion is Blend, a wine-and-food-pairing extravaganza. The food is provided by chefs at hotels and event spaces managed by Columbia Hospitality. Fortunately for you, one of those hotels is the Inn at Langley, and the chef there, Matt Costello, makes awesome food.

The munch and sip takes place from 4 to 7:30pm and costs $59.

But here’s the part that I find the most intriguing. (I’ve definitely buried the lede here): You can attend one of two, 90-minute wine blending seminars for the bargain price of $15. The seminars go from 2:30 to 4pm. Sign up to learn how Chateau Ste Michelle does its red blends or learn how Bordeaux-style blends are made from a Columbia Winery rep.

Either way, you get to taste what you create. Sounds like a great opportunity for wine nerds.
