About 13th Annual Celebration of Syrah


Our Annual Celebration of Syrah at McMenamins Edgefield features a Rhone White Reception and Gourmet Syrah Dinner on Friday evening, followed by a Tour du Rhone Lunch the next afternoon and, to cap it all off, our Grand Syrah Tasting and Benefit Silent Auction in the late afternoon.
