Stem is a science-based social and interactive event that showcases the craft behind brewing. Guests at this event will have the opportunity to learn directly from local winemakers and test samples. Stem is a great community event that supports the Pacific Science Center and local vineyards in Washington state.Whether you’re a science-loving wine novice or consider yourself more of a connoisseur, we invite you to unleash your inner sommelier under the arches at Pacific Science Center.
For the fourth year in a row, Locus Wines’ one and only Rich Burton is going to impart wine wisdom or should we say, divulge wine science secrets at Stem Tasting Event taking place on Friday evening, from 7PM to 10PM on May 17th at the Pacific Science Center in lower Queen Anne, Seattle.
Tickets are $50 per person ($45 if you are a member of Pacific Science Center). To buy tickets and learn more of what is to come, please visit the event site at STEM Ticket Page.

We are going to showcase some of the new, some of the existing wines at the TASTE Washington Grand Tasting event, taking place Saturday, March 30th and Sunday March 31st, from 2:30-6PM.
This two-day tasting event gathers over 235 Washington wineries, 65 top restaurants, renowned local and national chefs, and more – all for the enjoyment of your taste buds.
It’s near impossible to sample everything at the Grand Tasting, but the most determined wine- and food-lovers will certainly try. And don’t forget! Grand Tasting VIP ticket holders receive early access, with a special VIP-only hour from 1:30pm – 2:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
Come join Bottlehouse’s month-long program to support local winemakers during the month of March. As they called it, “curated tastings from Washington’s best every Sunday from 4 to 6 PM.” The wines will be there for tasting as well as glass pours and retail specials.
Bottlehouse, a wine bar in the Madrona neighborhood in Seattle, is especially near and dear to our hearts, since they were early supporters of Locus Wines. They have featured many Locus offerings by the glass and had our rose, Modo red as well as a special red that we had produced only for our keg program (Locus Tank #2) on tap. Not only that, when the Bottlehouse family expanded with Mr. West (downtown Seattle and soon in University Village mall), they featured Locus Wines in some of the new establishments as well.
Come chat with Rich Burton or simply taste the wines and see the City Cellars Fine Wines’ selection of wines. The tasting will take place from 5 to 7 PM, and any tasting fees are refundable with purchase. City Cellars is located at 1710 North 45th Street in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle. More information on City Cellars website.
On Saturday, Locus Wines winemaker Rich Burton is pouring the line up at the Hellam’s Vineyard wine store from 1 to 6PM. The daffodils are out so maybe in between visiting the fields, you should stop by. More information on the Hellam’s Vineyard website.
Socius (Locus Wines wine club) wine club’s second annual bistro event was a big one, compared to last year’s. We had over 100 folks with us at the beautiful Seattle Culinary Academy, tasting the past (2014 Rosé, 2016 Locus Rosé, 2014 Locus Modo Red, 2013 Locus Red) and some of the future (2016 Barbera, 2016 Cabernet Sauignon and 2016 Locus Strand Vineyard Syrah) Locus Wines releases, while nibbling on rabbit paté, cheeses and other goodness. Those club members who couldn’t make it: We are sorry but you should be sorry too. You missed out. We will catch you next time.
Here are some crowd-sourced imagery from the event. Thank you, Alice G. and others for the impromptu photography work.
