Taste the wine, hear the music and help the cause (Food Lifeline) at Wine Rocks Seattle July 11

Wine Rocks Seattle, an annual event that goes beyond the traditional wine tasting, is back for a sixth year. This year’s event takes place Thursday, July 11, 6-10 p.m. at Elliott Hall at Pier 66 overlooking Puget Sound. More than 35 Washington wineries, breweries and distilleries will be on hand at the event. To pair with your wine, a handful of local food trucks, including Jemil’s Big Easy, Lumpia World, Marination Mobile, Monte Cristo and Sweet Wheels, will be serving guests right on the pier.

“We’ve come a long way in since our first event in 2008,” said Jen Doak, founder of Wine Rocks Seattle. “What started out as an event to promote a guitar showroom as grown into a must-attend summer event helping support local charities.”Throughout the evening select Washington winemakers and friends will take the stage to share their passion for music. This year’s featured winemakers/musicians include:

  • Jamie Brown (Walla Walla Valley Winemaker)
  • Darren Des Voigne (Des Voigne Cellars)
  • Chip McLaughlin (Vinyl Wines)
  • Rob Newsom (Boudreaux Cellars)
  • Victor Palencia (Jones of Washington)
  • Gordy Rawson (Chatter Creek Winery)

“Wine Rocks Seattle provides wineries a relaxed, fun and non-traditional opportunity at connecting with their consumers and creating new relationships,” said Doak.

Tickets to Wine Rocks are $35 and can be purchased at This year’s Wine Rocks event benefits Food Lifeline, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in Western Washington. Food Lifeline stocks the shelves and fills the tables of 275 food banks, meal programs and shelters throughout the region.
