WILLAMETTE VALLEY VINEYARDS

WINEMAKER PAIRING DINNER

Wednesday January 30th  

6:00 reception | 6:30 Seating

Founder, Jim Bernau, purchased the Estate site in 1983 and cleared away the old pioneer plum orchard hidden in Scotch broom and blackberry vines. He planted Pinot Noir (Pommard and Wadenswil clones), Chardonnay (Dijon and Espiguette) and Pinot Gris. In the beginning he hand-watered the vines with seventeen lengths of 75′ garden hose.

Willamette Valley Vineyards has come a long way since then.

Today, the stylistic emphasis is on pure varietal fruit characters, with attention to depth, richness of mouthfeel, and balance. The wines are truly a collaborative effort of the entire vineyard and winemaking staff.

Join us at Trumbull Kitchen to meet one of those winemakers and a fabulous dinner, pairing Willamette Valley Vineyards wines with Chef Chris Torla’s menu.
