Second Annual Taste of Place
Wine Tasting and Dinner

 Join me and taste EIEIO wines made from the Yates Conwill Vineyard – plus wines from my neighboring vineyards. In my humble opinion, the wines produced from the West Ridge truly stand out among their peers.

The vineyards include Carlton Hill Vineyard, Gran Moraine, Résonance Vineyard, Terry Family Vineyard, and of course, Yates Conwill Vineyard.

All of the producers will be pouring wines from their current releases grown on the West Ridge while perfectly aged LIBRARY wines will be poured at dinner later that evening. Good people, good wine, good food and great conversation.

But that’s not the end of the story.

This year, we are working in conjunction with Chef Jacob Way from The Barberry Restaurant to host a candlelight dinner in the historic barn on the property.

Stay after “A Taste of Place,” to relax or compete in a classic game of croquet while the barn is transformed from “tasting room” to “dining room.” As evening descends, we will be treated to delicious plates paired with equally delicious wines, including older vintages from the wine makers’ libraries.

To entice you, the menu for this grand dinner is provided below for you to savor. If you reserve for the Candle Light Dinner, your $125 ticket will also grant you access to the preceding “A Taste of Place.”

For reservations, call The Barberry directly at 503-857-0457.

I hope you can join us for one, or both, of these memorable occasions.
