During the three-day beverage soiree, Sommelier Tommy Thompson will be selling over 100 hand-selected wines and spirits. Attendees will also have the opportunity to sample small bites from the Resort’s culinary team.
During the sale, Thompson will open up a few of his favorite finds so guests can have a taste while shopping. Find a sip you enjoy? Purchase it right there on the spot. Last year, lucky guests were able to take home an allocated 15-year Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon, a vertical of Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon, a 1970 Tullibardine Single Malt Whiskey, along with a highly auction-allocated Domaine de la Romanee-Conti ‘La Tache’ Grand Cru. There was also a vast selection of Washington’s cult wines, such as Leonetti Cellar, Quilceda Creek, Cote Bonneville and many more.
Shoppers can also take this opportunity to taste wine with Thompson and learn what goes into purchasing wine and spirits for the Resort’s beverage program. The Holiday Wine Shop will feature an incredible selection of local, national and even international wines, spirits, cigars and more. Prepare to be surprised: Tommy usually brings out some hidden gems!
“As we enter the fall and holiday season, we like to offer some of our favorite finds, whether it is wines or brown spirits. We find November is the perfect time to share these incredible pours, which also allows us to make room in the Resort’s cellar for several new arrivals. It also gives individuals a chance to shop at the sale and fill their cellars as well! There is no better way to make room in our cellar than to fill yours!” shares Thompson. “There’s something special about sharing a glass of well-crafted bourbon or dining with family and friends while opening that perfect bottle of wine that makes the holiday moment feel right!”
The following is a fascinating look at Thompson’s impressive lineup for 2019: featuring bottles from top winemakers at Leonetti Cellar, Bernard Burgaud, Zorah Karasi, Domaine Curry, ZD, Harlan Estate, Quilceda Creek, Doubleback, Kosta Browne, Screaming Eagle to name a few! To spice things up for the 2019 sale, Thompson has decided to add a limited selection of aged spirits to his offerings. They include Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon, Kavalan Whiskies, Lock Stock & Barrel 18, Blood Oath, Don Julio Tequila and Herradura Tequila.
With new wines and spirits to try each day, it’s no wonder guests make it a point to visit the wine sale on all three days. For more information about Tulalip Casino Resort or the Holiday Wine Shop, visit Tulalip Resort Casino.
