Attention wine-lovers! Omni Hotels & Resorts is resetting your palate and bringing back our popular “Flavors of the World” annual culinary series. This year, we’re excited to showcase the wines of Washington State with our “Taste Washington” promotion, from March 1 – May 31, 2014. Offering a variety of blends from Riesling and Chardonnay, to Merlot and Syrah, Washington State wines are some of the best in the country, and debatably, the world.
The brand-wide program, in partnership with the Washington State Wine Commission, serves as an extension of the state’s own “Taste Washington,” an annual month-long March event in celebration of the wines from the region. Our hotels and resorts across the U.S will feature wines from many of Washington State’s best wineries along with a food pairing menu, inspired by the cuisine of the Pacific Northwest.
Great wine and delicious food make a great pair. With this in mind, guests may enjoy: Handmade Washington Cheese served with fig jam, honey and olives, Dungeness Crab Fritters, Dungeness Crab and Snap Pea Soup, Apple and Fennel Salad, Roasted Salmon served with Wild Mushrooms and Apple Crisp with Vanilla Ice Cream all accompanied by Washington State wines, in both six and nine ounce pours.
Featured wines were selected in January during a grand wine tasting at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas. Washington State wineries shared a variety of wine that was sampled and then selected by our culinary team. After narrowing down the selections, the team visited Washington to explore more than 50,000 acres of Washington State vineyards, including Chateau Ste. Michelle, Hogue Cellars and Charles Smith Wines. There the team gained a deeper appreciation for the beautiful vineyards and vintages that will be showcased throughout Omni’s “Taste Washington” program.
To accompany our “Taste Washington” promotion, we’re offering a “Taste Washington” package, available to guests from March 7 – May 31, 2014. Book and enjoy sipping on a bottle of Washington State wine paired with a Washington cheese plate and Washington apples delivered in-room upon check-in.
To learn more about the promotion, watch our “Taste Washington” video.
We invite you to sip, swirl and savor as we embark on a wine-lovers tour of Washington.
