June - Chardonnay Vertical

 

This coming weekend starting June 17th - July 3rd in Underwood only, we will be offering a unique and in-depth exploration of Chardonnay from the Celilo Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge AVA and Burgundy, France. This vertical will examine what it means to be "Burgundian", "cool climate", and "low alcohol" and explore the beautiful primary characteristics that are expressed in such wines, ultimately challenging misperceptions. 

In this vertical, you will get to taste five vintages of Savage Grace Chardonnay from the Celilo Vineyard, believed to be Washington's oldest Chardonnay Vineyard. Bookending the vertical, we have included three French wines from renowned producers, Domaine Bernard-DefaixStéphane Aladame, and Paul Pernot et Fils.

Rick Ensminger, Celilo's 40-year manager, and steward talks about the history of the vineyard and farming. Rick has since passed away but we remember him and honor him. 

Food Pairing

We will be pairing the vertical with a Tuna Melt made from PNW premium albacore, topped with a raclette, and served on a rustic white from White Salmon Baking Co.
