Please join us Thursday, July 22nd at 6:00pm as we present an Al Fresco Oregon Six-Course Wine Dinner Experience featuring delectable wines from the portfolio of the Jackson Family Portfolio. Joining us this evening will be Mike Canter, Certified Sommelier and the Virginia specialist for the Jackson Family Portfolio. Our wines this evening will focus on the portfolio of small estates based in Oregon. According to critics, “Jackson’s Oregon small estates have become one of the veritable jewels in the crown” and “this portfolio has become clearly one of the most prestigious and cared for parts of the Jackson Family Wines empire.”

The event will take place on our covered garden terrace. Complete with plenty of room for social distancing, cafe bistro lighting and pastoral views of our six acres, two on-site gardens, koi pond, blooming flowers, our “Grande Tente” is the perfect place for a relaxing and uplifting evening.

Chef Jacques has created a delectable seasonal tasting menu to show off these highly revered wines. What better way to spend a summer’s eve, under the Grande Tente, sipping fine wine avec French Cuisine at L’Auberge Chez François? Seating very limited. See you there!
