Willamette Valley Vineyards Wine Dinner – May 4

Willamette Valley Vineyards Wine Dinner – May 4

Posted on

Please join us on Wednesday, May 4 for our Special Wine Dinner featuring the organic and sustainable wines from Oregon’s Willamette Valley Vineyards. Founder Jim Bernau began planting grapes in 1983 with a passion to make Pinot Noir that would be a classic, elegant representation of the Willamette Valley growing region.  He also believed that wines made with consideration for the environment, employees and the community would taste better!  Jim has realized his dream as Wine Enthusiast Magazine named Willamette Valley Vineyards “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers.” Our lineup of wines include a Chardonnay and two Pinot Noirs rated over “90” points.  Our host, Mandie Silver is a certified Wine Educator and a Culinary and Business School graduate.  She was recently involved in the Winter Dining Series at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park and is always proud to showcase the evolution and style of the Oregon Vineyards.
