The Orcas Project Wine Dinner at Ciao Thyme

November 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us as we welcome Stephanie and Cole Sisson, founders of the ‘The Orcas Project” for their first event in Bellingham featuring their special micro-production wines. We will serve a 5-course menu paired to their delectable wines. Cole, a native of Orcas Island, and his wife Stephanie collaborate with acclaimed winemakers and vineyards around Washington and Oregon to produce small private projects of 50-150 cases. The wines are only available at their tasting room on Orcas and a handful of restaurants in the San Juan Islands.

These food-friendly wines feature illustrations by Orcas Island Artist Carlin Hayworth. Each animal on the label corresponds to a different winemaker in the project. At this point there are five winemakers working with the project.

Cole worked as a Sommelier at restaurants including RN74 Seattle and Michael Mina at the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas. Stephanie worked in importing and distribution with a focus on wine training and education. Stephanie is enrolled in the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Diploma program and Cole recently sat for the Master Sommelier Exam. As a couple they share the view that wine should be accessible and fun for all!
