One of the best dinner that I had at the Society of Wine Educators (SWE) Conference in Seattle, WA was at the Columbia Winery.
What an amazing winery, modern and yet quaint with a formal dinning room and a spectacular wine barrel room. The night started out with a visit in their barrel room, a live jazz band, and passing h’orderves which are paired with their wines. Followed by a multicourse meal which also pair with their wines. I have to say that the food was amazing and their food and wine pairing is perfect. Each dish flavor were enhanced by the wine and vice verse with the wines. I have to say that the people at Columbia Winery left me with a very memorable evening of food and wine.
At the dinner I had the chance to see two of my most favorite wine instructors, both of whom are very knowledgeable and very passionate about passing on their wine knowledge. I have learned a lot from them over the time that I have known them.
