Most recently, they’ve expanded their Pairings Food and Wine Experiences to include Friday evenings.  Beginning at 6:30 pm each Friday, wine and food enthusiasts can join the Winery Chef and a knowledgeable Winery Ambassador for a four-course dinner featuring local ingredients and Willamette Valley Vineyards wine.  Guests will learn how wine can enhance a meal with proven culinary tips.  The first dinner will be hosted on January 9, 2015, and the event details are included below along with the winter prix-fixe menu.

The makeover included an outdoor seating area next to an inviting fireplace.
