Find yourself transported to the founding days of Willamette Valley Pinot noir as you dine overlooking Block 1 of Quarter Mile Lane. This iconic “backyard” vineyard was hand-planted in 1974 by David Adelsheim in what was then an undiscovered wine region, the Chehalem Mountains. IPNC President Matt Berson and Host Steven Spurrier will join special guests from French wineries, Rodet and Chateau de Chamirey at this memorable dinner hosted at the home of David Adelsheim and Eugenia Keegan.
Diners will enjoy a delicious meal prepared by Chef Michael Kessler of Toro Bravo fame as the Winemakers share the story behind the wines of Oregon and Burgundy. To honor and celebrate the decades-long collaboration between Côte Chalonnaise and the Willamette Valley, a selection of Burgundy wines brought back from David Adelsheim’s recent trip to France will be served alongside wines from Adelsheim, Laurent Perrier, and Love & Squalor. It will truly be a night to remember.
