Taste Syrah from Oregon and Washington – Abacella, Ken Wright, Dobbes Family Estates, Quady North and McCrea Cellars – just to name a few. Taste gems from France, Australia and Chile, too. Enjoy appetizers from Black Rabbit Executive Chef Kenny Giambalvo, including: artisan cheese, Chinook salmon, stuffed veal, seafood salad, panzanella and more, including desserts.
Be sure to bid in the silent auction, too, and purchase bottles of wine onsite to take home. Proceeds go to ¡SALUD! to provide healthcare for seasonal vineyard workers and their families.
We'll be stamping McMenamins Passports for attendees, too! Advance tickets and tickets at the door are available (Cosmic Tripsters get a $10 discount).
