4th of July Block Party

  • The VUDE

The VUDE & Hand of God Wines are excited to have Amazon be our neighbors!  After much anticipation, their new building, “Apollo” is opening next week!  We decided to welcome them to the neighborhood by throwing a good ol’ American 4th of July Block Party.

Start your 4th of July weekend early with a bang and join us on your way home from work on July 2, between 4:00-7:00, for some tasty bites and some delicious Argentine wine.

4th of July Block Parties wouldn't be complete without Hot Dogs & Ice Cream! We will be having local vendors come to showcase their treats.   

And for those of you who come wearing an  Amazon badge, you get a special on our wines and treats.  It should be a great opportunity to welcome some new folks to the neighborhood.  And of course, like a good neighbor, Hand of God is there!

The VUDE is located in the heart of South Lake Union (308 9th Ave N. Seattle, WA 98109) between Thomas and Harrison streets.

One of the great ones is returning

and is back!

Please Purchase Tickets Here:

http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1634359

On Monday, June 8th, The VUDE is happy to announce  the return of Jason Wilson of Crush for an intimate evening of delicious food and wine. Jason was the very first dinner we did at the VUDE on August 24, 2012. He is certainly one of the Northwest's most awarded chefs and will be preparing a multi-course meal (with a few surprises) that will be specially paired with Hand of God Wines.

Chef Wilson will discuss his work throughout the evening, sharing his knowledge from a career that spans more than 20 years. You will also learn more about the Hand of God Wines which come from Mendoza, the heart of Argentina wine country. In addition, attendees will receive a 20% discount on all wine purchases.

 The menu is going to be simply DELISH. Some teasers:

  • Deviled Eggs with Wagyu carpaccio and pickled onion.
  • Crudo of Hawaiian Snapper, grilled avocado, jalapeno and mustard greens.


Of course, we will have more and some surprises too.  Let's get that week and this summer started right with amazingly fresh and inventive dishes from one of the great ones.

 About Chef Jason Wilson:

Chef Jason Wilson's Modern American Cuisine has garnered awards and notice from across the nation and beyond. Named "Best Chef Northwest 2010" from the James Beard Foundation and one of Food & Wines "Best New Chefs 2006,"

Jason continues to innovate and lead the culinary movement in the Northwest with his restaurants CRUSH, and MILLERS GUILD.

Here is a quick video at our first event with Jason at the VUDE

Hand of God wines are crafted by none other than Santiago Achaval, who Wine Spectator proclaimed as the great maker of Malbec in the world!  While the vineyards are in Argentina, the owner lives in Seattle and this truly is a local story.  A small winery doing unique wines CAPTURING THE TERROIR OF ARGENTINA LIKE NO ONE ELSE.

 

These wines are sourced from two high altitude estate vineyards in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. Sobremesa Vineyard, established in 2007, is positioned 3,445 feet above sea level in the shadows of the tree-barren Andes range. Sobremesa Vineyard is chock full of deep gravel beds, mixed with smaller fractions of clay, lime, sand and rocks with good structure and perfect water drainage.

 

Stolen Horse Vineyard is located in the Cruz de Piedra area of the Maipú region. It was planted in 1922 with 8 acres (3.2 hectares) of old vine Malbec. Its elevation is 2,887 ft. Its topography consists of topsoil mixed with fine fractions of clay, lime & sand brought in with the irrigation water during the last 80 years, over deep gravel beds. Large rocks that were originally part of the vineyard were removed because their heat retention during the day was not needed. The vineyard is still furrow-irrigated and plowed by horse, just the way it was 90 years ago.

 

The Tasting Room is located INSIDE THE VUDE at 308 9th Avenue North, Seattle, Washington 98109.

Hand of God Winery presents the Foot of God, a celebration of the Lional Messi documentation at SIFF

  • The VUDE

Argentina loves its culture:  Tango, Music, Dance, Movies, Theater and of course FOOTBALL!  So when we heard that the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF.ORG) was featuring the documentary of Messi, we just knew we had to have a party (or 3!) to celebrate the greatest football player in the world!

There are two showings of Messi: on Thursday, May 21st and Sunday, May 24th.  We are doing events for both films. 

The three events are: 
A pre movie wine tasting paired with empanadas (May 21st, 5:30 pm, movie starts at 7pm at Harvard Exit)

A post movie debrief late night dessert, Dulce de Leche paired with Wine (May 21st at 9PM)

A full Argentine Asado inspired dinner after the movie on May 24th at 6:30pm.
Traditional Argentine food, known as Criolla tends to consist of large grills and barbecues called 'asados' or 'parillas' on which meat (primarily beef), and chorizo are flung. 

We are lucky to have a native Argentine friend (Rodrigo Cappagli ) who will be cooking up this feast. We will start with homemade empanadas (yummy pastries stuffed with anything from minced meat to chicken to cheese and ham)

The main course will consist of Grilled skirt steak Gaucho Style with chimichurri sauce, and Grilled Chorizo, this type is by far the most popular sausage grilled on a parrilla.

We will, of course, finish with Dulce de Leche!

And of course, all of it will be paired with our award-winning Hand of God wines!


NOTE:  When you click on the link, you must use the pulldown menu to select which event(s) you want to attend.  All three are there.

The suggested price for this dinner is $99.00 (which is inclusive of tips and taxes). This is most definitely a first-come, first served deal and will not be duplicated again. If you would like to bring friends to this event, have them become a member through the vude.com website before buying tickets.

More information on Messi, the movie:

Messi
Leo Messi is considered today's greatest soccer player, but at age 11 he ran the risk of his career ending before it started. With informal interviews, re-enactments, and spectacular footage of Messi's legendary exploits, this film tells the incredible, true story of his rise to glory.  (d: Álex de la Iglesia c: Maradona, César Luis Menotti, Jorge Valdano, Gerard Piqué, Spain 2014, 90 min)

Today he is considered the greatest soccer player in the world, but Lionel Messi grew up with a serious condition that, left untreated, would have stunted his growth and pre-empted his career. This film traces his life back to his childhood in Rosario, Argentina and his exploits with the legendary local youth team, through his diagnosis with growth hormone deficiency and the far-sighted decision by Barcelona F.C. to underwrite the cost of his treatment. That decision had an incredible payoff, giving Barcelona the greatest player in the team's history. Award-winning director Alex de la Iglesia (EL DIA DE LA BESTIA, CRIMEN FERPECTO) incorporates plenty of footage of Messi's spectacular ability throughout his career to dribble past opponents as if the ball were glued to his foot, and to find the net with power and clinical precision. The archival footage is artfully interwoven with re-enactments of key moments in Messi's life and informal conversations with Messi's friends and colleagues. It's a rousing and inspiring story that will appeal to soccer lovers and skeptics alike.
