Below is a sampling of the wines that will be poured on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the Taste of Tulalip. During the Magnum Party you can nibble on some of Kathy Casey‘s dishes from her latest book Sips and Apps. From what I’ve seen, these wines, amongst others, will be poured. Many iconic wines in this list. It could be a chance of a lifetime to try these wines together in one place! Champagne, an Australian icon, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Napa, Italy; they are all here. I am really excited about this lineup and can’t wait to taste them myself.

Who is Kathy Casey?
I mentioned that Kathy Casey will be serving food to accompany these wines. In case you don’t know, Kathy Casey is a celebrity chef, mixologist and pioneer in the bar-chef movement.
She played a key role in bringing Northwest cuisine and women chefs to national prominence and, as one of the first female executive chefs in the United States, she was named one of Food & Wine’s “hot new American chefs.” She has also been touted as being the original Bar Chef.
The Taste of Tulalip has only been around for a few years, but it has caught my attention, with the quality of wine and food that will be served on Nov. 11 and 12. The Taste of Tulalip will be held at the Tulalip Resort Casino in Washington State. From Vancouver, BC it is just under a 2 hr drive to reach the Tulalip Resort Casino. Enjoy some fantastic wines from Washington State, California, and Italy.
