Sporting Season in Seattle
It’s September and you know what that means—Seattle’s pro sport season is in full swing! With our tasting room just two miles away from the Sounders, Mariners, and Seahawks stadiums—who all have home games this month—we’re an ideal pregame spot. And, the Italian fare and pizza filled menu of our neighbor, Nine Pies Pizzeria, is the ideal grub to fill you up and get you ready to cheer on your team. So look no further, put on your favorite home-town gear and check out our crowd-pleasing pairing suggestions before heading to the ballpark, pitch, or field—we’ve got you covered!
Seattle Sounders - Lumen Field
Since their inaugural season in 2009, the Sounders have represented Seattle sports teams as one of the best clubs in Major League Soccer. Competing in the MLS Cup Playoffs each season since play began, the Sounders have been a noticeable presence in American soccer. So, what to drink before heading to the pitch? We recommend our 2018 Chardonnay or 2016 Malbec paired with Nine Pies #4 Travasi, topped with salami, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts.
September home matches: 9/14/21 against Santos Laguna
Seattle Mariners - T-Mobile Park
Ahhhh, baseball, America’s favorite pastime. Our Mariners have laid claim to our beloved SODO neighborhood since the ‘99-’00 season after more than 20 years at the Kingdome (‘77-’99). While we eagerly cheer them on with hopes of a World Series championship, we celebrate the titles they have won in the West Division in ‘95, ‘97, and ‘01. Don’t miss your chance to watch one of their many home games this month, but before you go to the ballpark, we suggest indulging in our 2018 Pinot Gris or 2017 Syrah with Nine Pies #3 Gran Turismo topped with sausage, soppressata, salami, mushrooms, and black olives.
September home games: 9/27, 9/28, and 9/29 against the Oakland Athletics.
Seattle Seahawks - Lumen Field
Football is back, baby! And, with the longest NFL season on record, that means more opportunities to pregame with us! The Seahawks organization was founded in 1974, but their inaugural season wasn’t until 1976. Much like the Mariners, the Seahawks called the Kingdome home for twenty-three years before moving to Lumen Field which they share with the Sounders. Our Seahawks have a number of championship titles, but in 2013 they brought home the crown jewel in the football world—the Lombardi Trophy! Let’s cheer on the team in hopes of another Super Bowl title this season, but before you do—sip on our 2019 Riesling or 2019 Red Wine paired with Nine Pies #6 Siluro topped with rosemary roasted Yukon Gold potatoes, and pancetta.
September home games: 9/19 against the Tennessee Titans
Sure we’ve got a full roster of Seattle sports this September, but we hope you will continue to pregame with us all season long! Let’s go Seattle! Cheers!
