About Seattle Uncorked

Seattle Uncorked is a social club for wine enthusiasts to meet new friends & network with others who love wine! Unlike most “wine clubs” whose real purpose is to sell wine, Seattle Uncorked is a resource to learn about fun tasting events, classes, blogs, and local wine stores and wine bars. Members enjoy weekly tasting and events around the Greater Seattle area!

After 35 years in this male-dominated business, her dream to bring together all the marvelous women in the culinary world has come to fruition with Women Stars of Food and Wine.
