So off we went to Sparkman Cellars to hang out with Chris Sparkman and learn how he makes, bottles, and enjoys his wine. The guy is hilarious! He's a Tennessee transplant and has the best sense of humor ... GO VOLS - unless you ever come face-to-face with a Husky! The best thing about this entire situation is that it's all for kids....seriously. The Washington Wine Commission is hosting a Barrel Auction and Picnic & Black Tie Gala with proceeds benefiting Seattle Children's Hospital.

** I was lucky enough to attend the Barrel Auction and Picnic at Chateau Ste. Michelle and it was beautiful! It was a gorgeous night and thousands of people turned out to support Seattle Children's by bidding on exclusive wine and buying mementos in the silent auction. Great job Washington Wine Commission - well done!!
