Wine-tasting ChicagoIf you’ve been thinking about visiting Seattle, March is a great time to experience the area, and take advantage of great hotel deals and discount packages created exclusively for Washington Wine Month, and to celebrate local food, wines, and restaurants!

Taking place on March 23rd and 24th this year, the 16th annual Taste Washington food and wine experience is the state’s premier culinary and oenophile weekend event. This year, more than a dozen hotels are offering exclusive packages for the two-day event.
