One night, 100 wines: Lifespring fundraiser Oct. 5

By Keegan Prosser on October 3, 2013 – No Comment

For wine aficionados, their cup (or glass, in this case) really does floweth over this month with the return of Le Vin à Son Apogée (Wine At Its Best). The LifeSpring fundraiser, set for Oct. 5 at the Westin Bellevue, offers attendees an evening of sampling 80 wines from around the world plus the best from the Northwest.

Good wine drinking is a good deed this night as the proceeds raise money for the organization’s Breaktime-Mealtime program, which provides children from low-income families with nutritious meals during school breaks, ensuring that they return to the classroom healthy and ready to learn.

Serving as featured winemaker for the evening is Peter Devison of EFESTE (pronounced F-S-T).

At Le Vin à Son Apogée, guests are free to move around the sommelier-staffed room tasting scores of wines while dining on hors d’oeuvres created to complement the wines.

Tickets for the event are $150; admission to a pre-event VIP party with Devison are $250. The VIP party begins at 5:30 p.m. and the main tasting and auction begin at 6:30 p.m.
