Tour du Rhone Lunch
Saturday, April 9, 2016 | 11:30 a.m.
It's not all about Syrah; there are other luscious grapes that come from the Rhone region and we'll share selections with you. Join us under a canopy of trees at the Little Red Shed Fir Grove, featuring a sumptuous four-course lunch menu indicative of the south of France, created by Black Rabbit Executive Chef Chris Rattaro and paired with traditional white, rose and red Rhone-style wines.

We top off the celebration in Blackberry Hall with this year's phenomenal grand tasting of more than 80 Syrah and Rhone varietals. Selections from the Northwest--as well as France, Australia and beyond-are all paired with hors d'oeuvres, making this the signature wine event of 2016. Be sure to bid in the silent auction, too; items will include overnight stays and winemaker tours. Proceeds go to ¡Salud! to provide heathcare for seasonal vineyard workers and their families.
