Wine Pairing Dinner Cruise with Guardian Cellars


February 22 | 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. | Wine Pairing Dinner Cruise with Guardian Cellars aboard a beautiful yacht


Raise your glass and enjoy an unforgettable wine pairing dinner aboard a beautiful Waterways yacht. Award-winning wines are paired with a delicious three-course dinner by our Executive Chef, as the wine expert from Guardian Cellars shares the history of each wine and guides you through the pairing presentation.

A cop and a reporter meet, fall in love and start a winery…

When Jerry met Jennifer, he was known around the Woodinville wine scene as the chemist, turned cop, who was always around to help with wine work. When Jerry and Jennifer opened the Guardian tasting room in November 2007, all 350 cases were gone by the end of the day. When the 2005 vintage was released months later, it was gone within a few days. For harvest 2018, the team produced 16 different wines between the two labels; a total of just over 11,000 cases. Guardian Cellars is focused on making stellar wines from Washington’s finest vineyards. A boutique winery and tasting room, a husband-and wife-team, a cop and a reporter.
