Do away with your cares, soak up the summer sun and taste the region’s top wines at Kirkland Uncorked. Experts and amateurs alike can taste and discover the nuances of different varietals, the process of aging and how to distinguish wine aromas, all while relaxing lakeside at Kirkland’s signature summer festival July 20, 21, and 22.
Known as one of the world’s top wine regions, Washington has more than 30,000 acres of vineyards and over 650 wineries. From Kirkland’s own Northwest Cellars and Zero One Vintners to Walla Walla’s Zerba Cellars, sample from over 50 different wines from across the state. A crisp Pinot Gris and a light Rosé are the perfect matches for a summer day and as the sun goes down, grab a taste of a full-bodied Cabernet Franc or Tempranillo.
Once guests find a wine that indulges their senses, they can savor their discovery by taking a bottle home. At the Kirkland Uncorked Wine Shop, presented by The Grape Choice, bottles from festival wineries are available for purchase at special event prices.
