Indulge the desire to sip rich and aromatic Cabernets produced by local vintners at the third annual Cabernet Classic to benefit Rotary First Harvest. Seattle Uncorked’s “Cabernet Classic” will serve tastings from over 25 Washington wineries that will delight both the nose and palette.
On October 20, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Washington Athletic Club in downtown Seattle, event attendees will meet some of Washington State’s top artisan winemakers and taste their amazing hand-crafted wines, some of which are award-winning. Favorite cabernets will also be available to purchase for future enjoyment perhaps for the upcoming holiday season. Guests will sample handcrafted truffles, chocolates, cheese, and heavy appetizers.
The participating wineries are donating their time to enable the proceeds from the ticket fee to benefit Rotary First Harvest, a non-profit organization that provides nutritious produce to food banks and hot meal programs across Washington State. Meeghan Black, a weekday traffic anchor for KING 5 and co-host of “Gardening With Cisco,” will emcee the evening’s festivities.
