We had over 100 people come through yesterday and what a day. People drank and ate and had a good time, helping us launch 2018 Locus Modo White, 2017 Sémillon and 2017 Modo Red (a blend that is 70% Merlot). Cantaloupe Gazpacho and Dukkah Shrimp were the winners for the day, with Eggplant Caprese right on their tails.
Thanks to everyone that showed up. Thanks to Seattle Culinary Academy students who worked the event and made it special: Christopher, Michael, Elaina, Devon, Coco and Adj. Even bigger thanks to those who helped us put the event on, our friends and volunteers, Shama, Lindsay, Joy, Josh, Birgit, Carol, Eric and Patrick. Here is a sampler of pics from the party… The bottles, the food (courtesy of ESCA Catering), the flowers (courtesy of Blackhouseflowers), and of course the volunteers.
Footprint Wine Tap, first and only sustainable keg wine on tap bar and shop sourcing fine PNW wines and food for your palate pleasures, is hosting its first annual pride tasting week kicking off today with brunch and mimosas.
Locus Wines is going to join in on the fun on Thursday evening, from 5 to 9PM, with winemaker Rich Burton in tow. Come taste the wines and show your support for the Pride Month.
Locus Wines will be available by the glass or by flight. Flights are $10 per flight OR $15 for both flights.
Locus Wines winemaker Rich Burton will be on hand to serve specially-priced Locus Wines-only flights from 1 to 6PM at the Tasting Room, located in Post Alley in downtown Seattle. Locus Wines is always available by the glass or by the bottle at the Tasting Room but usually without Rich Burton serving it to you!
Show up and test his service skills, talk to him about the wine and see if he has kept up his table-waiting skills up to date from back when he used to wait tables at Duke’s on Lake Union while he was going to college. Yes. The truth is out there. Some of you probably ordered clam chowder from Rich back in 1995 or any time until 1998…
