A hip new twist to the wine tasting experience — all for a good cause.
If you are less interested in discussing a wine’s flavor profile or its “complex, nuanced finish” and more interested in simply tasting and enjoying wine, then check out Vinolution, a new kind of wine tasting event that features up-and-coming Washington wineries.
Wines will be paired with food from celebrity chefs; there will also be music and a live auction.
