Women For WineSense Seattle Invites You to Our Holiday Dinner With
Tom Stangeland of Cloudlift Cellars
Chef Anne Marie Eatery and Catering
19804 141st Place NE, Bldg. D
Woodinville, WA 98072
Wednesday, November 28th, 2018
Avignon, France and a bottle of Chateau Neuf-d Papes inspired Tom Stangeland to collect Washington State wines, lay them down, and experience those wines as they aged. As a chef, Tom had experienced the pleasure of creating food that would pair with wine. He had always been a craftsman and enjoyed working with his hands, and he eventually left the Seattle restaurant world to create his own line of dining tables and chairs, designed so people could gather in comfort to enjoy great food and wine. Wine never left his mind, and in 2001 Tom graduated from the Northwest Wine Academy and began creating Cloudlift Cellars wines in his workshop. Andy Perdue, Seattle Times wine writer, international wine judge, and co-founder of Northwest Wine Press, says Tom is “building a reputation for crafting wines of structure and depth”, naming Cloudlift Cellars 2015 Stratus Petit Verdot number 23 in his list of Top 50 Regional Wines of 2018. Tom’s goal is to make wines to pair with food, and to bring people together around the table, a perfect blending of his talents as a chef, winemaker, and furniture craftsman.
It is always a pleasure for us to welcome Chef Anne Marie as our caterer for one of our events! Her food is always wonderful, and she makes sure to meet with the winemaker to taste the wines being poured for us so the pairings will be the best they can be. This will be our first event at her new CAM Suite, Chef Anne Marie Eatery & Catering’s new private event space in Woodinville’s warehouse district. Our dinner is going to be a not to be missed, multi-course, holiday feast!
