October’s Don’t-Miss List: Lifespring’s ‘Le Vin A Son Apogee’ wine auction | The Eastside Scene

This year’s LifeSpring wine blowout will feature selections from 80 different countries, each rated at 90 or more “Parker Points.” Additionally, lead sommelier Rina Bussell will present her selections of the best wines in the Pacific Northwest.

Rina Bussell of Wine Folly will be the head sommelier for Lifespring's Le Vin A Son Apogee.

This year’s LifeSpring wine blowout, Le Vin A Son Apogee will feature selections from 80 different countries, each rated at 90 or more “Parker Points.” Additionally, lead sommelier Rina Bussell (pictured) will present her selections of the best wines in the Pacific Northwest.

The event is pricey at $200 for tasting entry and $250 for VIP status — which doesn’t even touch the cost of wines bought at auction — but money raised will support Breaktime-Mealtime, a LifeSpring program that provides 1,500 children with meals during breaks from school. That’s a cause we can all raise our glasses to.

Where: Hyatt Regency Bellevue, 900 Bellevue Way N.E., Bellevue, WA 98004

When: Oct. 11
