Wines at OysterFest
If Pepsi goes with a hamburger and a light microwbrew with a hot dog, what wine goes with a poached dill salmon, geoduck fillet or a steaming bowl of clam chowder? The answer of course is a Washington State wine! And to help one make the correct selection, OysterFest regularly organizes a wine-tasting hall featuring Washington wines exclusively.
Each year, nearly twenty wineries showcase the vintages that have helped them make their mark in the wine world. Whether you prefer a robust red, tantalizing white, or like some sweeter options, you'll find it here.
Friends gather to spend hours visiting and sampling wines. Some just stop in for a few tastes on their way to one of the other many OysterFest venues. No matter your plan, stop by and experience winetasting.
Buy your souvenier glass for just $5 and wine tasting tickets for just $1 each. Each taste of wine is two to four tickets, depending on the wine. Tickets may be purchased and redeemed at any of the winery tables for tastes.
