Taste Washington's 2021 programming, a month-long celebration of Washington wine and food is adjusting to meet the needs of public safety by offering an entire month of creative new promotions encouraging people to directly support the Washington wineries and restaurants they love; and to discover new favorites. This includes the brand new Taste Washington To Go and Taste Washington At Home, along with unique winery and restaurant activations, hotel packages and more.

Taste Washington To Go presented by Alaska Airlines highlights some of Washington’s top produced wines, paired with playful themes:
Each week, famed chefs will create a special takeout pairing uniquely crafted for the specific theme. Wineries across the state will offer promotions highlighting the week’s featured variety, and local restaurants will offer their own spin on the theme. Taste Washington To Go includes restaurants like The Whale Wins, Salare, Aerlume, Musang, Mixtape Pasta, Gravy, Kamonegi, Canlis, Sawyer, Local Tide, Hitchcock, Stateside, Restaurant Homer, Three Sacks Full, Rupee Bar, Siembra, Goldfinch Tavern, Tom Douglas Restaurants, Brothers & Co, and Tyger Tyger. More restaurants will be announced in the coming weeks. Subscribe to the Taste Washington weekly e-newsletter to get the scoop as limited quantities will be available from each restaurant and are expected to sell out quickly.
Taste Washington At Home presented by Whole Foods Market invites everyone into the kitchen to take part in Taste Washington. Each week Whole Foods Market will share a different recipe and Washington wine pairing that follows the theme. This program was inspired by Taste Washington fans that are unable to travel this year or feel more comfortable preparing their own meals at home. Dozens of hotels will offer wine packages with a mix of amenities including a bottle of wine upon check in, complimentary parking and other perks if you are planning a staycation.
Now is the best time to join a wine club or taste a new wine. Washington wineries will participate in Taste Washington with promotions all month long, including shipping specials, waived tasting fees, wine discounts, virtual tastings and more. Likewise, restaurants across the state will offer weekly specials and recipes highlighting the featured – and their favorite – Washington wine and food offerings. All programming details and weekly announcements can be found on the Taste Washington website.
