12th Annual Sexy Syrah & Tantalizing Tastes at Salty's on Alki (charity: FareStart}
Buy your tickets here, they sell out FAST! : UPDATE - EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT - farestart.org/help/events/index.html
Sommeliers David LeClaire & Tim O’Brien once again bring together 35 NW wineries making Syrah and Syrah blends for what has become THEE Syrah Event in Washington!
This lush, bold, spicy wine is helping NW wineries continue to garner attention and accolades amongst the wine industry worldwide.
The wine will be accompanied by an array of tantalizing tastes by Salty's own Executive Chef Jeremy McLachlan. This popular event, which sells out every year, is a fundraiser for Farestart, a food services job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals.
This is an unhosted event, but I will be there volunteering for the Wine Store (oh did I mention that any of the Syrahs that you taste this evening are available to take home as well?) I can tell you that this is one fabulous event, the winemakers are often there pouring themselves, the food, provided by Salty's is of course ultra delicious, and the view of Seattle sparkling across the inlet from their deck is one of a kind.
The charity is awesome, placing homeless people with new culinary and barista skills for a new rewarding, self sustaining livelihood.
