Wine classes on tap

Wine Rose Cellars, 143 W. Washington St., Sequim, is planning two wine classes this spring: “Intro to Wine” and “Wine Appreciation.”

The first class will be an introductory class about wine in general, how wine is made and how to taste wine like a pro, led by sommelier Michele Jaegar. Each class includes 3-5 complimentary wine tastes plus hors d’oeuvres and cost $45 per person, per class. Pre-register for both classes and get a certificate for 50 percent off wine to go.

Classes will be held on the late Monday afternoons of April 8 and April 22. Contact the wine bar manager at or at 360-681-0690 to reserve a seat. Space is limited and requires advance registration.

Registration deadline is April 3.

Estes adds Smith

Estes Builders recently added to its staff with the hiring of Kenneth Smith, the company announced last week.

Smith will work with Estes’ in-house design team to edit drawings and plans for the builder’s custom home projects. The new position “will further ensure Estes can continue to uphold its commitment to delivering homes on time and on budget,” Estes representatives said.

Smith, who works from the Sequim office, brings 18 years of experience in architecture and drafting, most recently serving as an architectural consultant for Gibson Design Group in Port Angeles.

“Having a drafter in-house makes the work with the architect faster and more productive for the client and results in fewer cost overruns,” said Estes Builders owner/CEO Kevin Estes.
