The 10th anniversary of the Seattle Wine and Food Experience is just around the corner. Our Director of Marketing and Events, Lauren Madeja, talked to KING 5 about Comfort, Pop! Bubbles and Seafood and the Grand Tasting.

“This marks the 10th anniversary of the Seattle Wine and Food Experience and it’s the second year that Seattle Magazine has produced the event, so we’re really excited to make this the biggest and best event it’s ever been,” said Madeja.

The three-day event is happening Feb. 22-24. 

Comfort combines Seattle’s obsession with craft beer, pairing it with comfort foods such as dessert and burgers. SoDo Park, Feb. 22.

Pop! Bubbles and Seafood can’t get any fancier than pairing sparkling wine from around the world with top seafood bites of Seattle. McCaw Hall, Feb. 23.

Grand Tasting wraps up the weekend with “over 200 wineries, breweries, distilleries, restaurants and food purveyors,” according to Madeja. Bell Harbor Conference Center, Feb. 24.

There are still a few tickets available!

Sip, Slurp, Celebrate at Frank’s Oyster House

Let’s be Frank about Champagne

It is one of several apiaries located…
