What you'll do
Brian and Holly are Gilbert's Cheese Experience: we host cheese-pairing pop-ups on-site with Seattle-area food and beverage producers, providing a delicious sampling of locally procured products and insider access to local craft producers. For this event, we're teaming up with Washington winemaker Kasia Kim to bring you an evening of food, wine, community, learning and fun at the Kasia Winery tasting room in Snohomish, Washington. This event pairs artisan cheeses with Kasia's meticulously handcrafted and deeply personal wines. First, we'll gather around the table in the tasting room to talk about wine and cheese, and the importance of supporting local food and beverage producers. Kasia will share her story and tell you about her craft. We'll teach you how cheese is made and walk you through how to taste. Then we'll feast on the pairings! This is a fun, interactive time where you can ask questions, try new flavor combinations and socialize with the producers and with each other. You'll leave satiated, satisfied and having learned a few things, too! This event includes three samples of artisan cheeses and three sample pours of Kasia's bold, flavorful and delicious wines — and snacks are provided, too!
