In addition, the 2006 Cabernet Franc, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay, 2007 No Oak Chardonnay, and 2007 Semillon and Gewurztraminer will be on hand for sampling and purchase.
South Seattle Community College’s Northwest Wine Academy is a first-of-its-kind program in Western Washington and offers three certificate programs – Wine Making, Wine Marketing & Sales, and Food & Wine Pairing. The Academy complements the college’s highly regarded and award-winning Culinary Arts program and the new bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management program.
The event is free and open to the public. The Northwest Wine Academy is located on the South Seattle Community College campus across from Bernie’s Bakery. Parking is available in the North entry parking lot.
