Today’s the day!  The show is ready to open. The red carpets have been unrolled, the sails are up, the trim has been polished, tonight it’s time to UNCORK and enjoy some beautiful boats! We’d like to pass along the information about a special opening night event that all you wine and boat lovers may enjoy:

Uncorked – An Evening of Fine Wine

presented by Falvey Yacht Insurance

Friday, Jan 25, 2013, 5-9 PM

Chardonnay and a Cobalt. Sauvignon Blanc and a SeaRay. Merlot and a Malibu. What do these unusual pairings have in common? They will all be available at Uncorked, Seattle Boat Show’s new Opening Night event at CenturyLink Field Event Center on Friday January 25th, 2013. For the first time in the show’s 66 year history, showgoers will be able to sniff, swirl and sip their way through the Boat Show, tasting a variety of award-winning Washington wines, while soaking in the show and shopping for the boat of their dreams or wandering the three acres of accessories exhibits.  And if that weren’t enough to make for a fabulous, fun evening, there’s also an aerial, acrobatic show to add to the mix.

Wine Lineup The Seattle Boat Show opens at 11am on January 25th, and Uncorked, presented by Falvey Yacht Insurance, runs 5-9pm.  Nine tasting stations will be set up throughout the indoor location at CenturyLink Field, offering wines from 10 different Washington wineries. Wineries include Apex, Canoe Ridge, House Wine, Sagelands, Sawtooth, Waterbrook and Willow Crest.  Winery representatives will be on hand to answer questions about the wines.

Additional great news for showgoers and wine lovers: Waterbrook is the Official Wine of the Seattle Boat Show and Waterbrook wines will be available for purchase throughout the Show at concessions and the full bar and lounge located on the Concourse Level at CenturyLink Field.

Packages for Uncorked may be purchased online for $27 at www.SeattleBoatShow.com.  This price includes a single adult admission to the show valid throughout the day at both locations, plus a complimentary souvenir wine glass and 10 wine tasting tokens. Tickets for Uncorked will also be available at the Box Office.

Fun fact – we did some custom logo oars for Canoe Ridge a couple years ago!  It’s a treat to see them on the list of participating wineries.

And hey, if you’re more of a beer than a wine person, stay tuned for “Sails & Ales” craft beer night coming up on Friday, Feb 1st!
