Fill Your Wine Glass at POUR this Weekend! El Gaucho Bellevue’s Annual Signature Wine Event

Summer celebrations are in full swing around the Puget Sound. Take the night off from the grill and gather friends at El Gaucho Bellevue for our signature POUR wine tasting event on Saturday, July 11th from 5:00 – 7:30pm. The evening will provide a unique opportunity to sample more than 110 wines from local producers, as well as cult wines from around the world. Guests can meet with the winemakers and restock their cellars by purchasing the featured vintages at compelling prices.

“This time of year marks many of the new wine releases, so it’s an exciting time to try them,” says Josh Lehman, El Gaucho Wine Captain. “Since it’s so hot out, I recommend people try the newly released rosés that will be at POUR, such as CAVU’s 2014 Barbera Rosé, which we just started featuring by the glass.”

Of course, there will be great food for guests to enjoy between swills while mingling inside and on the updated patio. In addition to Gaucho signature bites, Taylor Shellfish and Nicolas Feuillatte are pairing up to provide freshly shucked oysters with champagne, and Smitten Artisan Truffles will provide sweet morsels. Don’t miss Chef John on the patio for his grilling demos.

Guests also have the opportunity to stay for “After POUR,” and choose from one of four wine dinners, hosted by Sparkman Cellars, DeLille Cellars, Stag’s Leap, and Woodward Canyon. Guests will enjoy a 4-course dinner with outstanding wine pairings.

This event is designed for anyone who enjoys trying a new vintage, meeting the winemaker behind an old favorite and sampling delicious food. The wine tasting reception is open to anyone for just $85. Guests can attend only the winemaker dinner alone for $125, or take advantage of both for $160. Valet is complimentary for all attendees.

“They say one glass a day is good for you, they never said how many times to fill it,” jokes Lehman. Fill your glass with us this Saturday at POUR! Call 425-455-2715 for tickets and reservations.
