Seattle Tasting + Cooking Classes

Seattle is the newest addition to the HØSTE family, and we're in love. We paddled across Lake Union, to the ferry back and forth to Bainbridge Island, and even crossed over into Bellevue to bring you the most enthusiastic, personable, nerdy, approachable, passionate experts we could find. We not-so-secretly want to be their friends. You will want to be their friends too after taking one of their classes. See our offerings below.

Most importantly, you’ll leave the class knowing what you actually like in wine, making it much easier to order + purchase in the future.
