Free Wine Tasting at Champion Wine Cellars
Sat, 12–5 pm.
Champion Wine Cellars, 108 Denny Way
Champion owner Emile Ninaud possesses Seattle's very first wine license: He opened in 1969 and works there to this day. 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. His Saturday drop-in 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.
