2015 Highland Park Uncorked
Announcing 2015 Highland Park UNCORKED
If you have never been to one of our wine-tasting events (or have a somewhat hazy recollection), here is the overview. Each person brings a bottle of their favorite wine, priced at $15 or less. You are assigned a table. The bottle is placed in a brown paper bag, given a number and eventually placed somewhere on your assigned table. You don’t worry about that, as you relax with the wines from the award winning Northwest Wine Academy, mingle with your neighbors, and munch on a wonderful spread of food prepared by our talented gastronomes.
For much more information, please go to our About the Event page.
The tables fill up fast, so register now to ensure that you have a seat.
Become a sponsor! Each sponsorship level includes between one and ten admissions! And now that HPIC is a recognized by the IRS as 501(c)3 nonprofit, your donation may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
Lots of great prizes have been donated for the raffle drawings, so be sure to bring some cash or credit cards to buy tickets.
New this year – The Wine Aroma Challenge! Reggie Daigneault of the Northwest Wine Academy will be setting up the same challenge that she gives students in her Sensory Evaluation class. There will be neutral wines infused with aromas that are commonly found in wine. For $20 you can test yourself and get a chance of winning a case of wine!
Did you know that the HPIC is owned by the neighborhood and run by members of the club, who volunteer their time? We are the ONLY club in Seattle like this, making Highland Park a truly unique place to live. A community creates a sense of camaraderie, belonging, security and support and the club is here to support the spirit of community by bringing neighbors together for wonderful events like UNCORKED, Corner Bar, Tailgate parties, weekly classes and special events.
All proceeds from Highland Park UNCORKED go towards improvements for your Highland Park Improvement Club.
