HistoryLunch 2017: The Remarkable Story of Wine in Washington State
Join us for HistoryLunch, HistoryLink’s annual fundraiser, at the Four Seasons Hotel, 99 Union St., Seattle, on September 7 at 11:30 am as we explore the history of wine in Washington.
In the early 1960s climatologist Dr. Phillip Church’s study of Eastern Washington revealed its close similarity to France’s famed Burgundy region. Then everything changed. Now, much to the surprise of the rest of the world, Washington is the second largest producer of premium wine in the United States.
Ted Baseler, President & CEO of the critically-acclaimed Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, and one of the individuals responsible for the dramatic growth of winemaking in Washington, will be the speaker at this year’s HistoryLunch.
Bob Betz, Founder of Betz Family Winery and a key figure in the development of Washington wines, will be our master of ceremonies.
