December 5th and 6th join us for two incredible nights with Chef Aaron Tekulve and Winemaker Pete Devison at Whisk where you will be taken a on a journey with food and wine. 

EFESTĒ (pronounced F-S-T) believes that great wines are based on two simple principles: terroir and a minimal wine making approach. They utilize native fermentation, which encourages more complexity and produces fuller, richer wines than those inoculated with commercial yeast. The natural yeast within the grapes creates flavors unique to each particular vineyard. EFESTĒ encourage character; great wines should have personality.

With freshly minted medal-winning wines from Seattle Met Magazine, October 2016 and with over eight amazing wines receiving over 90 points from Wine Enthusiast, September 2016, EFESTĒ along with winemaker, Peter Devison, have teamed up with Whisk and Surrell Dinners, Chef Aaron Tekulve for an exclusive, six-course, paired wine dinner that celebrates the seasonal Pacific Northwest bounty. Watch Chef Aaron masterfully create each exciting course and savor each alongside EFESTĒ’s fabulous wine selections with winemaker Pete Devison and team present …all in great company in Whisk’s modern, well-appointed kitchen! Menu may change based on seasonal availability.
