What pairs better than wine and charity? Wine, food, and charity.

The 8th Annual Sexy Syrah event will be held at Salty’s on Alki on Wednesday April 15th. This event features over 40 Washington wineries along with food from Salty’s. The event is a benefit for FareStart, a job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. Sommelier’s David LeClaire of Seattle Uncorked and Tim O’Brien of Salty’s are hosting the event. I will be participating as a judge along with four others to determine the night’s Gold, Silver, and Bronze wines. Stop by and say hello if you will be attending.
