It Got Out of Hand

Thursday, July 28 at 6:00 pm
at Home of Eugenia Keegan & David Adelsheim
22150 NE Quarter Mile Lane, Newberg OR 97132

In the beginning, it was intended to be simple – Chisa Bize (Domaine Simon Bize, one of our favorite Burgundy producers) and Adelsheim. Then a bunch of our IPNC-bound winery friends heard, and It Got Out of Hand – Champagne Laurent-Perrier, Domaine Fornerol, Weingut J. Hofstätter, Brewer-Clifton, and Gran Moraine. With seven wineries to keep in check, we were in desperate need of an amazing chef. Enter Pascal Chureau, chef at Fenouil (Portland) and now Allium (West Linn.) Expect a meandering, French country dinner from Chef Chureau and way too many wines.

$250 per person  SOLD OUT
