Platinum XXI Dinner

     The wines have all been procured for our 21st Annual Platinum Dinner. We will be serving eight great Platinum winning wines during the reception. The evening will include a courses of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Petit Verdot, Red Blends and a nice dessert wine. The menu has been finalized and will be announced in an upcoming newsletter. A registration form is included below so start talking to your friends and putting your table together. Due to significant cost increases in food, we will be upping the price to $175 per person. Last year we were within four seats of selling out and this year we hope we can fill all the seats. So, get your reservations in early this year.

-- Platinum Committee


     You may purchase seats individually or purchase a table of eight, ten or twelve. If you would like to sit with a winemaker assigned to your table, then leave two open seats on your list and we will assign a winemaker to your group.  If you are buying a whole table, please send in the money for all of your table along with a list of the people at your table OR pay online and choose the proper table type you would like to buy and you will be prompted to list the people at your table.  In that way you will be guaranteed to sit together!  If you are not buying a table, but would like to be seated with friends, please list their names either on the form or again, online, and we will try to seat you accordingly.

     Get ready for a Riesling adventure that will tantalize your taste buds and transport you around the globe! Join us as Central Washington University’s Wine Studies students showcase six exceptional Rieslings from some of the world's top wine regions.  


     Taste the crisp minerality of Germany's renowned Mosel Valley, the luscious sweetness of Australia's Clare Valley, and the complex and elegant layers of New York's Finger Lakes. Take a sip of dry, aromatic Riesling from Alsace and experience the vibrant acidity and sumptuous fruit of Washington State's Evergreen Vineyard. The evening will conclude with a special treat, a decadent ice wine from Canada, made from Riesling grapes frozen solid on the vine, which results in a rich and highly concentrated wine. 


     This unique event will allow you to explore the diverse terroirs and winemaking techniques that make Riesling one of the most beloved and versatile grape varieties. Don't miss out on this special opportunity to discover your new favorite Riesling!
