“It will be an excellent evening of examining and showcasing not only one of our region’s accomplished wineries, but also the hospitality and wine expertise of our WSU Tri-Cities students,” said Robert Harrington, academic director of the WSU Tri-Cities Carson College of Business. “It should be a fun night of food, wine and social networking, as well as an excellent opportunity to get to know some of our accomplished students.”

During the event, students will also present food pairings, manage a silent auction and interact with guests. An example pairing is house-smoked salmon bacon served with roasted Northwest beets, WSU Cougar Gold Cheese, blushing beet stems and paired with 2013 Hamilton Cellars, Weinbau Vineyard Cabernet Franc.

“We are so excited to taste the food that Chef Jamie and his students are preparing to pair with our wines,” said Stacie Hamilton, one of the owners of Hamilton Cellars. “Chef Jamie is an amazing chef with an exquisite palate, so we are expecting a magical experience.”

Hamilton Cellars is located at 55410 N Sunset Rd. in Benton City.
