WILLAMETTE WINEMAKER SLAM AT LITTLE GOAT
Considered one of the most up-and-coming wine growing regions, the Willamette Valley is often compared and contrasted to Burgundy, California and other cool-climate areas. What is in the bottle is a unique terroir and story all its own that should be put in the conversation as one of the world’s best.
Join us for a six-course, ten-wine pairing experience that will not only highlight the Willamette Valley, but will give you an opportunity to meet five fantastic winemakers from the area. Each course will be paired with a Willamette Valley wine and one from an iconic wine region around the world. Did we mention the wines will be served blind?
Featuring the incredible cooking of Stephanie Izard, this dinner will be hosted by Goat Group Wine Director Cassie Sakai and 2018 Food + Wine Sommelier of the Year Jon McDaniel. One night only, this is a dining experience not to be missed!
