Vino FC

Week 186

Every Wednesday we feature a local winery for tastings…$10 buys you 3 tastings! Retail bottles will be available; the tasting fee will be applied toward your purchase, or enjoy a bottle with dinner and we’ll waive the corkage fee.

Reservations are highly recommended but not required.


Founded by former Seattle Sounder and wine enthusiast Kelyn Rowe, Vino FC is a thoughtfully curated monthly wine subscription that represents wine regions from around the world while delivering exceptional value. At Vino FC we celebrate the diversity of wine styles, inclusive to all levels of wine consumers. We explore traditional and lesser known varieties, regions and newest discoveries together. Most importantly, we have fun.

Vino FC’s foundation is a community of shared passion for the game and passion for the grape. We continue to grow this community and welcome non members to our monthly tasting social events. In addition, member benefits include monthly focused and themed selections of quality and value driven wine, discounted bottle sales, opportunities of invitations to special events and access to limited wines.

She initially fell in love with the culture of food and wine as she was traveling the world and dove into her own wine education through the international sommelier guild, wine and spirit education trust, certified specialist of wine and the court of master sommeliers. She keeps her palate sharp as a wine judge for numerous regional competitions and is a previous winner of Sommelier of the Year in Seattle Magazine’s Washington Wine Awards. (Also a Vino FC member!)
