UnWined takes place on March 16 at Astoria's Liberty Theatre, going from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets to UnWined are $45 per person in advance, or $50 at the door (if not sold out.)

The festival's wine competition is one of its highlights, bringing in vino from all corners of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The results are always highly anticipated. Now, you can taste the same award-winning wine immediately following the professionally judged blind tasting.

Guests enjoy the intimate setting of the Liberty Theatre’s McTavish Room, where they can sample reds, whites or dessert wine and delicious appetizers along the way. This is truly a behind-the-scenes taste of the very best wine that comes to the Astoria-Warrenton Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival. You'll be getting an exclusive experience with this event limited to only 150 attendees – an insider's glimpse into one of the Oregon coast's biggest festivals. This is a 21 and over event.

Then there's that chance to get first tastes of some of the festival’s best offerings and an opportunity to mix and mingle with the judges to learn more about the art of Oregon wine. The 2024 judges panel includes five experts with backgrounds as wine makers, educators, sommeliers, buyers and writers. The selection of “Best of Show” for red and white wines will be announced during UnWined. Attendees will be encouraged to cast their vote for the “People’s Choice Award” given at the end of the evening.

Tickets are available for $45 and include a commemorative UnWined glass, 10 wine tastes, and catered appetizers. The event will be held upstairs in the Liberty Theatre on Saturday, March 16, 2024, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Make an evening of it and enjoy one of the many great restaurants located nearby before or after your tasting experience.
