What: Raptor Ridge Winery invites you to celebrate Harvest 2012.
We are thrilled to kick off this years’ crush, with our FINAL Third Thursday event of the year! As this is also a wine club pick up, our members will enjoy this event, for FREE!
To mark the occasion, Raptor Ridge is offering a specially selected flight of our latest club shipment, paired with a few fantastic bites prepared by Raptor Ridge Chef and owner of The Side Yard Farm, Stacey Givens. Stacey and Raptor Ridge sommelier Tom Champine creatively pair these wines to über local bites, many grown directly in Stacey’s urban farm. Take in the evening air and observe dusk from the tremendous “Flight Deck” in the Chehalem Mts, while meeting other Food and Wine loving fans. As a bonus, each guest will take home a new recipe and a bit of wine pairing wisdom!
