Alex Eagleton – Creator of Stems and Legs
Alex Eagleton is the managing partner for Club Vibes in the Seattle Region and creator of the Stems and Legs wine tasting series. During the summer of 2005, Alex took a trip to Los Angeles to meet up with a friend and enjoy the great weather in the area. He was invited to Temecula, CA to experience his first ever wine tasting. After visiting 4 wineries, he was immediately hooked and wanted to learn more about wine. Over the next few years, he toured various wine regions in Washington and Oregon and built a nice collection of wine.
In November 2009, with the advice and guidance of various people, he launched Stems and Legs at the Edgewater Hotel in Seattle. Although the series is very young, it has been attended by many people and has been well received.
