The Hotel Bellwether and Lighthouse Grill is bringing The Walls Vineyards and Structure Cellars for the October Wine Social on Thursday, October 11 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Compass Wine Room.
With Brian and Brandee Grasso at the helm, Structure Cellars has two tasting rooms located in Seattle, The Blueprint Room and The Cellar, each with different vibes from casual and cute wine dogs in one to a 20-foot sophisticated steel wine wall in the other and both serving different wines. Brian creates wine with a passion and a dedication to making high quality, good value wines. With over two decades in the fine dining restaurant industry, he was inspired by winemaking after a visit to Walter Decon Cellars in Shelton, Washington. And, after several years of hard work, he and Brandee have made their dreams of owning a winery a reality.
The Walls Vineyards creates wines that tell the story of their roots. They love to connect with people who see wine as a new and memorable way to create experiences with others. “The Walls” was originally meant as a play on the Washington State Penitentiary, one of the most notorious Walla Walla landmarks. It’s contradiction in the name is a personal one for The Walls Vineyards. The team sees wine as an opportunity to bring people together, build community and topple those walls. Mike Martin, owner, turned his passion for wine and curiosity for life into a second career. He now focuses solely on bringing distinctive wines and great people together.
Each of these casual wine tasting events in our Compass Wine Room will feature at least two wineries offering their best vintages for tasting and purchase. Guests are treated to a unique opportunity to taste Northwest produced, limited production wines that are also offered at special prices for purchase that evening. As you sip and savor, you will enjoy the finest bites from our own Lighthouse Grill.
Ticket prices are $30 plus tax for each event and include several wine tastings from each winery, light appetizers and small bites.
