Free Wine Tasting at Champion Wine Cellars
Sat at 11 am–5 pm.
Champion owner Emile Ninaud possesses Seattle's very first wine license: He opened in 1969 and works there to this day. Champion's wine tastings—from the more than 1,500 bottles in stock, with tons from France—are all about "obscure wines from obscure regions," he says. Though he's French by birth, he's made Champion a snobbery-free zone, with wine novices welcome and an emphasis on good value for whatever your budget may be.
