Pete’s of Bellevue
March Tasting Schedule
March 5 First Thursday, 5-7pm
Come and enjoy a selection of Rhone wines. They include Château de Montfaucon, whose history dates back to the 11th century when the castle’s first tower was built. We are also featuring the Domaine Sainte Marie Dez Croze which have been run by the Alias family for 5 generations – they have been practicing sustainable agriculture for the past 8 years and since 2011 have been converting to organic agriculture. Finally Vrac follows centuries old European tradition, while creating a high quality product, where villages buy their wine from their local wineries or “en Vrac” with their own jugs.

Toe to Tip
From the toe of the Boot to the tip of its heel, Italy has more than 2,000 different indigenous grapes, the most of any country in the world. Join us as Jerome leads you through a tour of ten of the most emblematic, delicious, and outrageous expressions. We'll be pouring wines from Italy's North to its South, helping you understand the full panorama of Italy’s terroir, traditions, and grapes. This tasting offers aficionados or Italian wine newbies the most delicious education in authentic wine that you can get outside of Italy. Toe to tip, Pete's is where Italian wine lovers come for fine Italian wine.
The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member, the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence. During this twenty six generations, the family has always directly managed this work with courageous and, at times, innovative decisions, but always maintaining, unaltered, a fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated. Today the firm is run by Marquis Piero Antinori with the support of his three daugthers, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia. Tradition, passion, and intuition have been the three driving principles which have led the Marquis Antinori firm to become a leader in Italian wine.
This weekend closes out Taste Washington, so we thought we’d end with a taste of the Northwest. Southern Wine and Spirits will be presenting a selection of bold wines from our great state as well as some Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from our neighbors to the south.
Also Beer Tasting: Oscar Blues – Great canned beer is NOT an oxymoron! These beers are awesome! Why cans? The cans keep the beer quite fresh by fully protecting it from light and oxygen – they are lined with a water-based coating so beer and metal do not touch. Incredibly portable for outdoor enjoyment…and easily recycled to be more earth-friendly!
