Chardonnay and a Cobalt. Sauvignon Blanc and a SeaRay. Merlot and a Malibu. What do these unusual pairings have in common? They will all be available at Uncorked, Seattle Boat Show’s new Opening Night event at CenturyLink Field Event Center on Friday January 25th, 2013. For the first time in the show’s 66 year history, showgoers will be able to sniff, swirl and sip their way through the Boat Show, tasting a variety of award-winning Washington wines, while soaking in the show and shopping for the boat of their dreams or wandering the three acres of accessories exhibits. And if that weren’t enough to make for a fabulous, fun evening, there’s also an aerial acrobatic show to add to add to the mix.
Presented by Falvey Yacht Insurance, Uncorked runs 5-9pm after the start of the Seattle Boat Show on January 25th. Nine tasting stations will be set up throughout the indoor location at CenturyLink Field, offering wines from 10 different Washington wineries. Wineries include Apex, Canoe Ridge, House Wine, Sagelands, Sawtooth, Waterbrook and Willow Crest, and winery representatives will be on hand to answer questions about the wines. For those looking to pair the wines with some fabulous food, Seattle’s famous and fabled Metropolitan Grill will be making a special appearance for the event. The Met will be serving up some scrumptious bites, available for purchase in the Boater’s Lounge on the mezzanine level.
Packages for Uncorked may be purchased online for $27 at www.SeattleBoatShow.com. This price includes a single adult admission to the show valid throughout the day at both locations, plus a complimentary souvenir wine glass and 10 wine tasting tokens. Tickets for Uncorked will also be available at the Box Office.
