The Great Northwest Wine Dinner
Featuring Wines from Oregon and Washington State Thursday, June 13, 2019 • 6:30 pm
The Northwest has long been known for its spectacular scenery. In the last twenty years, it has become a major wine region. The Northwest’s warm, dry interior regions are uniquely suited to producing full-bodied, balanced wines. In fact, such areas often receive more sunlight than competing vineyards in California. It is from this growing reputation for excellence that the Northwest acquires its respected standing as a “New World” wine region. For the curious wine connoisseur and the adventurous traveler, the Northwest’s 500+ wineries offer unending opportunities for enjoyment. Exploring Northwest wineries is a bit like globe-hopping: Each sub-region has its own terroir, its own ecological footprint and culture to be savored and appreciated. We will feature eight wineries from the Willamette Valley of Oregon to the Columbia and Yakima Valleys of Washington State. Chef John D’Amico will showcase a six-course dinner that will pair with twelve wines.
