History Through the Vines is an annual historic winemakers dinner, meant to offer a limited number of guests an exclusive glimpse into the history and legacy of Washington wine. In 2018, our focus is on the Figgins Family, and the world-renowned Leonetti Cellar label. Founded by Gary and Nancy Figgins in 1977, Leonetti Cellar is Walla Walla's first commercial winery, and a tribute to the Leonetti Farm established in 1906 by Figgins' Italian immigrant grandparents. The winery's prominence in the wine industry dates to the 1980's when Wine & Spirits Magazine recognized the 1978 Leonetti Cabernet as best in the nation.

The evening will begin with a social hour and special posthumous induction of Mike Wallace (1942 – 2016) into the Legends of Washington Wine Hall of Fame. He was the owner and winemaker of the oldest family-owned winery in Washington, Hinzerling Winery, and was instrumental in establishing the Yakima Valley AVA, the first in the state. As an educator, he mentored several notable winemakers in the industry.

The program includes a three-course dinner paired with Leonetti wines and Hinzerling port. Guests will have a rare opportunity to hear the Figgins family tell their story in person through a relaxed, intimate interview led by Andy Perdue of the Seattle Times.

Seating is limited to approximately 100 guests, and tickets are $150/person.

Tickets are transferable in advance but non-refundable. Must be 21+ to attend.

Testimonials:

"I was the owner of Riedel stemware prior to the Riedel Tasting event at The Clore Center. I came away from the event an even stronger believer in the difference that Riedel stemware can make." - Rob Jasper

"I was amazed at how every characteristic of the wine changed and came to life in its correct glass. My perspective on glass types is forever changed!" - Felicia Smoker

"Besides my own initial reaction, it was enlightening watching the faces of others as they tried wines from the appropriate varietal-specific Riedel stemware. Being a big Chardonnay fan, tasting this varietal from it's specific glass was an eye opening and 'palate opening' experience for me!" - Mitzi Hadley

 

The program begins promptly at 2 p.m., so please arrive early to be ready to start on time.
