What to Expect at the Grand Taste #TasteofTulalip

Taste of Tulalip wine glass

The Grand Taste at the Taste of Tulalip on Nov 12 should be amazing, with over 100 wineries (65 WA, 20 Napa, 20 Italian) with multiple food stations throughout. I think this event has something for everyone, so if you are a wine person, or a foodie, or both, there will be lots to enjoy. Some teasers of the food and wine that you could enjoy at the Grand Taste.
