Join us for an afternoon of fine dining and some of the best wines from the Willamette Valley. Oregon wines are known for their rustic elegance. It isn’t news that this Pacific Coast Wine Region produces some of the world’s best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Alsacian style whites. With winemaking history going back to the 1970s, there is a unique sense of camaraderie and community amongst its growers. There are about 72 varieties of wine grapes grown across 6000 square miles between Oregon’s Cascade Mountains and the Coast Range. The vineyards are cultivated from a series of unique, complex and diverse terroirs.
Larry Stone from Lingua Franca, Josh Bergström from Bergström Wines, Rajat Parr from Evening Land Vineyards, and Lynn Penner-Ash of Penner-Ash Wine Cellars will host your experience of a spectrum of varietally specific wines from some of Oregon’s top wineries with personal stories and a connection to this unique setting and culture.
The lunch will feature cuisine by Chefs Michael Scelfo of Alden & Harlow in Cambridge, Jared Forman of Deadhorse Hill in Worcester and Aaron Meneghelli of FARM at Carneros Resort & Spa in Napa Valley.
