Pairing Food & Wine, 101

In this class Chef Abby will give you the simple tools to navigate food and wine pairings with success and confidence. You’ll taste through selected wines and bites as well as sensory elements that are highlighted in the wines. You’ll find out what works well together as well as how to avoid what does not. You’ll take away the knowledge of just how easy it is to make your own perfect pairing at home with friends.

Examples include: Salt, fennel pollen, olive oil, Chile pepper paste, charred/smoked meat, honey, salty aged cheese.

Join us for our 2016 Elements Oregon Bubbles Release Dinner on Thursday, October 26th in the Chehalem Cultural Center’s ballroom. We’ll have Crown Paella stirring up some delicious flavors to pair perfectly with our soon-to-be released 2016 Elements Oregon Bubbles!

Why Elements?
Elements is made with purpose; to help bring awareness to our planet’s greatest resources and our part in its preservation. Our inaugural release recognizes water, one of the earth’s most valuable elements. Water sustains life, a cause worthy of all of our ambassadorship.

We’re teaming up with The Washed Ashore Project, a unique organization that builds and exhibits aesthetically powerful art to educate a global audience about plastic pollution in oceans and waterways and spark positive changes in consumer habits.

Dobbes Family Estate will be bringing GERTRUDE, a 9-foot penguin made from the ocean’s plastic pollution, to the Chehalem Cultural Center for 3 months. Angela Haseltine Pozzi, Founder and Artistic Director of the Washed Ashore Project will be joining us at the Release Dinner on October 26th — join us as we raise a glass and awareness for a worthy cause and celebrate our newest wine, Elements Oregon Bubbles!

Dobbes Family Estate will be donating 10% of proceeds of Elements Oregon Bubbles to The Washed Ashore Project.

ROCO Saturday Extras – Knudsen Vineyard Focus @ ROCO Winery | Newberg | Oregon | United States

ROCO is one of a few wineries able to source this amazing fruit due to Rollin’s long-standing relationship with the Knudsen family, dating back to his days with Argyle winery.

November 1st through December 31st, Willamette Valley wineries and partners are teaming up to provide emergency food for our neighbors in need and support for fresh food programs through the Oregon Food Bank Network. It’s our opportunity to share our bounty during the holiday season and to give back to the people of our community.
