As we move into fall and winter, wine-themed dinners become increasingly popular.
And why not? The weather has already begun to cool down, the rainy season (groan) is just around the corner, and indoor activities will soon be the norm.
I just wrapped up a wine dinner series at Bellingham Technical College that featured a number of top-notch Washington wines. These wines showcase the variety and depth of premium wines produced in the state, and confirm what many of you already know - a good wine tastes even better when paired with the proper food.
Here is a summary of the highly recommended wines that were served:
If you’re thinking about attending a wine dinner, consider reserving a space at North Bellingham Golf Course’s Nine Restaurant at 6 p.m. on Oct. 18. I’ll be moderating an exquisite five-course dinner that will feature Annette Bergevin from Walla Walla’s Bergevin Lane Vineyards. Wines slated to be served include sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, two red wine blends and syrah. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 360-398-8300, ext. 2.
