2019 Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival Toasts Medal Winners Aug. 10

Over 150 wines from up to 55 Pacific Northwest wineries will be served at the 4th Annual Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival on August 10, 2019 in Bellingham, WA.

This year’s Festival returns to the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel Ballroom in Bellingham and is produced by the Whatcom Beer and Wine Foundation.

In addition to the wineries, the event will feature two distilleries and one brewery from the Pacific Northwest. And for foodies:  a selection of passed appetizers from Bellingham Four Points Executive Chef Bryce Lamb, as well as small plates prepared by eight Whatcom County restaurants.

The Festival is unique in that it features wines from the only judged wine competition between Seattle and Vancouver, BC. Medals for gold and double gold wines along with the Best in Show trophy for the top-rated wine will be presented as part of the evening’s festivities.

All of the medal-winning wines will be available for tasting during the Festival, and attendees can also order wines to purchase and pick-up or have delivered after the event.

“Each year we try to give festival goers more and better options,” said Foundation President, Dan Radil. “So far, the support we’ve received from both regional wineries and wine enthusiasts has been amazing. It’s really evolved into an event for wine tasters on every level, with the primary focus to provide them exposure to some of the terrific wines being produced in the area and, of course, to have fun.”

Tickets are available at two prices levels: $50 general admission provides three hours of tasting in the Grand Ballroom from 7:00 to 10:00 p p.m., with access to all wineries, passed appetizers, and small plates, and a souvenir wine glass; $75 VIP tickets allow for an extra hour of tasting in the Ballroom beginning at 6:00 p.m. as well as exclusive access to a VIP lounge from 6:45 to 10:00 p.m. that features appetizers and hourly rotating wine pours not available in the ballroom.

Net proceeds from the Festival will be distributed to the Foundation’s designated beneficiary organizations for 2019 including the Alzheimer’s Association and the Make.Shift Project.
