Locus Wines + Mamnoon’s Jason Stratton = The New Vintage

The New VintageFriday night has never looked so good. Now in its second year, The New Vintage – a celebration of select wineries and restaurants as part of TASTE Washington – is at the very center of it all in downtown’s distinctive Motif Seattle on April 1 from 7pm-10pm.

Locus Wines is paired with Mamnoon’s Jason Stratton for the event and the 2015 Locus Rosé is the wine of choice for Stratton’s carrot hummus with cumin and lime. Tasters will also sample the Locus Sémillon as well. The Locus Wines crew will be on hand to pour the wines.

Jason StrattonStratton 101 for the uninitiated: He is a local legend. He started his career at the Le Gourmand at the age of 16, then moved to Cafe Juanita in 2002. He later became co-chef at Poppy, until joining Spinasse in 2009. While at Spinasse, Stratton was named one of Food & Wine magazine’s 10 Best New Chefs for 2010 and opened both Artusi and Aragona, a James Beard semifinalist for Best New Restaurant in 2014. Since September 2015, Stratton has been General Manager and Executive Chef of Capitol Hill’s Mamnoon.

What?
Discover your new favorite Washington wine while tasting mouth-watering bites crafted by some of the city’s most celebrated chefs. Sneak into the Rosé Lounge and indulge in this of-the-moment varietal, then groove to the beats of renowned DJ Tina T. Stylish and undeniably fun, The New Vintage is a fresh approach to Taste Washington weekend that you won’t want to miss.

Where?
Motif Seattle

When?
April 1st, 7-10PM

How much?
$75/per person.

You can learn more about the event and purchase tickets at the TASTE WASHINGTON site.

Spring Release Rosé Party –> April 9th, 1-6PM in Madrona

To see pictures from this event, click The Gallery.

Locus Rose InvitationThe invitation says it all, we think.

We are going to do a lot of rosés come April 9th, in preparation for upcoming summer season… The weather may or may not be amazing on the day of the event but no matter. We want us all in a summer mood, weather in Seattle be damned.

We will taste through the new vintage Rosés (this year, we have two: one grenache, cinsault and mourvèdre blend and another, served only at this event, a cabernet franc and grenache rosé), the previous Locus Rosés as well as a Rosé from a winery that we really like: Pearl and Stone Wine Co. They will pour their new 2015 Unemployment Beach Rosé along the rest of the wines. And of course, what is a Rosé event if we don’t end it with a red wine? We will pour our 2013 Locus Red in closing. That wine got much applause but most recently, it got 91 points from Wine Spectator. So, a good close to a summer-prep party.

You can RSVP on Facebook or email us at info@locuswines.com.

As usual, we will pair the wines with resident culinarian Ton Yazici creations. And as usual, the tasting is free and open to adults 21 and over.
