Presented by Artist Betsy Hinze and Authentique Wine Cellars as a benefit for the Portland YouthGrow.
Explore the part soil plays in the terroir of wine through a 5 course dining experience based on the concept of “eating dirt.” Under sculptural light installations, you will dig through edible soil flavored with foraged nuts and mushrooms, crack open warm oven-baked clay to reveal roasted root vegetables, and experience the excitement of never quite knowing what you will unearth next.
Each guest will leave with the experience of a delicious dinner with many interactive components and surprises, a better understanding of the local soils and how they influence the taste of wines accompanying the dinner, and a special treat to take home at the end of the night. Buy your tickets now for an experience you won’t soon forget!
