¡Salud! Founding Winery Dinner Series

25 years ago, a group of forward thinking winemakers—many among the first to ever produce wines in Oregon—came together to participate in a world-class wine event, the first of its kind in the state.  Inspired loosely on the Hospices de Beaune auction, these wineries comprised the original Vintners Circle, producing one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir cuvées in support of healthcare services for the seasonal vineyard worker population.

Five lucky couples will have the opportunity to join these pioneering vintners for a unique series of winemaker dinners that will be exclusively offered at tonight’s silver anniversary celebration.  Held one per season in 2017, dinner guests will be regaled with the tales and camaraderie that only decades of winemaking experience in this state can provide, warm wine country hospitality, and of course, bottles upon bottles of rare, library, and reserve wines—each helping to share a bit of the Oregon wine story with every sip.

The ¡Salud! Founding Winery Dinner Series will be sold per couple and held on the following dates:

  • Saturday, February 25, 2017 at Sokol Blosser with Bethel Heights Vineyard, Erath Winery, and Domaine Drouhin Oregon
  • Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Elk Cove Vineyards with Amity Vineyards and Tualatin Estates
  • Saturday, June 3, 2017 at Adelsheim Vineyard with REX HILL and Panther Creek Cellars
  • Saturday, November 4, 2017 at Ponzi Vineyards with The Eyrie Vineyards, Cooper Mountain Vineyards, and Oak Knoll Winery

Donated by Adelsheim Vineyard, Amity Vineyards, Bethel Heights Vineyard, Cooper Mountain Vineyards, Domaine Drouhin Oregon, Elk Cove Vineyards, Erath Winery, The Eyrie Vineyards, Oak Knoll Winery, Panther Creek Cellars, Ponzi Vineyards, REX HILL, Sokol Blosser, and Tualatin Estates

Blending the Best at Raptor Ridge

Make your mark on the 2016 Raptor Ridge ¡Salud! Cuvée during this evening of blending trials!   Dream of trying your hand at winemaking?  You and up to five guests will roll up your sleeves and work shoulder-to-shoulder with founding Raptor Ridge Winemaker Scott Shull and Assistant Winemaker Kevin Wiles for an evening of blending, tasting, and merriment.

Calibrate your palate with Co-owner Annie Shull, who will lead you through a ‘warm-up’ tasting of previous ¡Salud! Cuvées.  Winemakers then will guide you through the intricate process of composing and tasting trial lots to craft the Raptor Ridge 2016 ¡Salud! Cuvée.  After the work is done, enjoy a barrel tasting while sampling the culinary artistry of their in-house chef, Irene Bonn-Laney.

Tonight, take home this three-year vertical of past Raptor Ridge ¡Salud! Cuvées for a crash course on the Raptor Ridge house style—“homework” to prepare for your blending debut!

  • Library Raptor Ridge ¡Salud! Cuvée Tasting for six people with Annie Shull
  • 2016 Raptor Ridge ¡Salud! Cuvée blending trials for six people with Scott Shull and Kevin Wiles
