ZINO Society Sommelier Kurt Krause, Four Seasons Hotel Seattle Director of Catering Kirk Sugamele, Couvillion Winery Winemaker Jill Noble, and I (Mary Holmes, VP Business Development, ZINO Society), had a wonderful afternoon tasting the four award-winning wines Jill Noble has created. The goal was to taste all four and develop a menu for the annual ZINO Zillionaire VIP Entrepreneur and Investor Dinner. It was a difficult choice determining which wine would be served with the main course; when Kurt asked Jill what her favorite wine was, she said, “That is like asking who is your favorite child!” Needless to say, she did not reveal any one selection. Chef Kerry Sears is working on the menu, soon to be listed along with the wines on our website.
