This came through my email today.  It sounds very interesting.  If you live in WA state, or in BC and can drive across the border, consider signing up for this wine class.

Bellevue, Washington — The “Scandinavian Wine Hacks” continue their spring 2012 wine class curriculum at Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar in Bellevue on Monday, May 14th with “Washington Renaissance:  Boushey and Billo”.  This is the 9th consecutive year that oenophiles Erik Liedholm and Lars Ryssdal  have offered wine education at John Howie’s eastside dining hotspot, located at 205 – 108th NE in Bellevue’s Civica Building.  The New York Times has remarked that the pair “…pours only the Gold Standard” in their seminars.

Boushey and Billo are two of the dynamic duo’s favorite Washington wine icons. One is relatively new on the scene but has quickly made a name for himself as one of the best winemakers in the state. The other has been the most respected grape grower in the Washington for over three decades. The evening’s class will explore the correlation between vine and wine with Rasa Vineyards winemaker/co-owner Billo Naravane and Boushey Vineyards owner Dick Boushey.  During the class, students will experience a tasting of the Rasa Vineyards portfolio and an exploration into Boushey.  The course begins at 6:30pm, runs for approximately two hours and is priced at $60, exclusive of tax.  There is a 48-hour cancellation policy.  Reservations may be made by calling Erik Liedholm at (425) 456-0010 x46.

The final spring offering will be a Seastar Wine School first:  a road trip to Napa.  With the “wine hacks” as their guide, participants will have an exclusive tour and tasting of California’s Napa Valley wine region.  Airfare, airport transfers, ultra-deluxe lodgings, superior winery tastings and incredible meals are included.  For dates and pricing, contact Erik Liedholm at (425) 456-0010 x46 or eliedholm@seastarrestaurant.com .  Space is limited.
