Our wine will be featured at the October 15th Seattle Area Chapter of Women For WineSense (www.womenforwinesense.org), which, as you might know, is a national wine education organization founded in 1990, based in the Napa area. Our Seattle Chapter holds monthly wine programs – from winemaker dinners to looking at specific wine producing countries, regions or varietals. This October 15th we will be focusing on Pinot Noir, with “The Pleasures of Pinot Noir”. We will be examining wines produced in Washington, Oregon, and California for this event. The wine educator leading this program for us each year is David LeClaire, of Wine Events and Promotions (www.vinolover.com). David is a Certified Sommelier and has worked with many wine organizations, including bringing ZAP back to Seattle in July for the first time in 12 years. He has taken some of the ZAP wineries on the road in 2006 and 2007. In 2005 he did the same for Paso Robles wineries for the Paso Robles Grand Tastings 2005, which visited 4 cities between March and June. David has worked with wineries all over the country in promoting regional tastings, local wine education events, and private functions. He also is involved in numerous charity wine events, including Children’s Hospital fundraisers, Sip For A Cure benefiting breast cancer research, and Bags & Bottles, a fundraiser for Gilda’s Club. He also holds annual trade and consumer tasting such as The Best of the West and Rose Revival.
