January 14th Event: The Washington State Wine Awards

2013





The Washington State Wine Awards (formerly known as Washington Wine Restaurant Awards), established in 2002, recognizes industry leaders that exhibit strong support of Washington wines and high professional standards in wine service.

After 10 years of honoring restaurants, this year’s ceremony will shine a spotlight on nominees and winners from the retail, tourism, distributor and wholesaler sectors, as well. An estimated 500 attendees will include wine buyers, sommeliers and influential tourism players, among others. In addition to the short awards ceremony, attendees will have the opportunity to engage with several dozen Washington State wineries
and taste their wines.

The Washington State Restaurant, Retailer and Tourism Champions of the Year are the most prestigious awards, while the Washington State Wine Grand Award seeks to commend those individuals and organizations that designate menu and wine list space for Washington wines and provide continual promotion, sales and education of Washington wines. Other awards honor special categories such as Sommelier of the Year, Best Wine Event featuring Washington Wine, and the Walter Clore Honorarium which is given to an individual who has demonstrated dedication to the advancement of the Washington wine industry. Judges evaluate restaurants, individuals and organizations on a variety of criteria, including wine list, service and staffing, promotions and overall wine philosophy.

You must RSVP in advance if you wish to attend this event.

The Awards Ceremony and Tasting will be held Monday, January 14th, 2013.
McCaw Hall at Seattle Center
Seattle, Washington
3:00PM-7:00PM

This event is new to me. The last time I mentioned personal Seattle restaurant experiences, was after Taste Washington Seattle 2012, "What to do in Seattle after Taste Washington!" I look forward to learning more about the Washington State Wine Awards.

Cheers!

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @wild4wawine ) of my favorite dessert for over a year. Possibly, I've posted the original recipe to Instagram. If you ask, I usually do. After success and failures, I've learned that this dessert does not always deliver desired results. With some effort, I've figured out why, and the remedy. Yes, I've been gently tweaking the recipe. Adjusting ingredients. Modifying and streamlining the process. With mixed results. Confiding with my wife, she gave me a tip that finally nailed this recipe down. I'm happy to share this recipe with modifications. It's truly a lovely dessert. My favorite. Enjoy responsibly. Just out of the oven flourless chocolate torte. Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Torte An easy recipe to follow. You will need an oven, mixer, spring form pan and a double boiler. While you can eat this torte warm, I prefer to let it cool down and refrigerate it

Answer: Sweet Bordeaux | Question: Which French Wine Pairs with Salty, Savory and Heat?

Category: Delicious Wine and Food Pairings Since last year, I have found myself drinking more sweet white wines. And not with or as dessert. I've become quite fond of pairing sweet and medium sweet white wines with lunch and dinner. Not any sweet wine will do. You need a quality wine with complexity, sugar yes, but the wine also needs balanced acidity to match with the food. And the wine must be tasty too. I'm referring to the sweet white wines of Bordeaux, France. Sweet Bordeaux wines deepen in color with age. Sweet Bordeaux white wines are made with a combination of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle grapes.These wines are quite sweet, with balanced acidity, so many of these wines can be long lived in the wine cellar, even decades. As these wines age, you will notice that their color deepens to a beautiful deep gold. Even though these are age worthy wines, they can be quite approachable and food friendly when young. Yes they can. Tasting and pairing th
