Washington’s top wineries join Fairmont Olympic Hotel in the TASTE Celebrations for their 3rd annual event series. Every March, Washington State Wine (WSW) – the organization that represents all wineries and vineyards in Washington State – honors the ever-growing Washington State wine industry with a month-long celebration of tastings, pairings, promotions and events. To celebrate Taste Washington Wine Month 2017, the Fairmont Olympic Hotel will host their third annual wine event series. The events will run throughout the month of March, and will include unique complimentary wine tastings with some of Washington’s best winemakers:
- March 9 with Maison Bleue Winery & Spring Valley Vineyards
- March 10 with Chateau Ste. Michelle & Woodward Canyon Winery
- March 16 with Elsom Cellars & L’Ecole N° 41
Each of these evenings, from 4:30pm to 7:00pm, two wineries will each pour two wines for
tastings. The events are open to the public and will take place in the Fairmont Olympic’s lobby
lounge. Guests can taste a variety of wines while listening to local musicians and enjoying an
extended happy hour of seasonal bites and share plates.
Visitors will also be able to purchase the wines by the glass in the lobby lounge, giving wine lovers the chance to sip on top shelf wines that rarely are available by the glass. The Olympic culinary team will be pairing appetizers from the lounge menu with a different wine from each evening, in case guests are looking for paired recommendations.

Michelle 2012 Mourvedre, which is only available to purchase for wine club members, as well as guests of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel.
