* Matching Wine With FoodMatching Wine With Food

Time: 7:00 pm

All the practical information you'll need to make the best decisions when pairing wines with food. You'll learn why keying in on the components of the food and wine are more important than trying to match the flavors of each. That's why a tart crisp white can make most seafood sing and those deliciously sweet glazed carrots can obliterate even the best high-end cabs. I originally created and taught this class for the student chefs at Seattle Central Community College culinary arts program.

* 10th Annual Pig Roast and Sale10th Annual Pig Roast and Sale

Time: 12:00 pm

I can't believe it's been 11 years since I opened the first Wine Outlet store in SoDo but apparently it has. That first store opened in March so each year at this time I host a big birthday bash for the stores (there used to be 3 now only one) complete with a huge sale and a whole roasted pig. This party is really a way for me to say thank you to all of my wonderful customers for their support. Besides the few Garage Sale events I've had over the years the Pig Roast! and Big Sale is by far the largest event we have at the Wine Outlet.

* Single Malt Scotch ClassSingle Malt Scotch Class


* Single Malt ScotchSingle Malt Scotch

Time: 7:00 pm

With the possible exception of grappa no distilled spirit appeals to wine drinkers as much as Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The reason is that, like wine, Single Malts are a product of producer and place. Just as the wines from Bordeaux are so distinctly different from those from Burgundy so too are the Single Malts from the Highlands, Campbeltown and the Lowlands. In Monday's class on Single Malt Scotch we will learn just how these famous whiskies are made and how the local water and the size and shape of each still make every whisky as unique as the people who distill them. We will taste whiskies from every major region as well as some that are very old and rare from my personal collection. Because of the limited quantities of these very rare whiskies I won't be able to ever duplicate this class again.
