Celebrate Spring Virtual Food & Wine Cooking Class - Admission Only

Purchasing this Admission Only ticket grants entry into the class but does not include a bottle of 2022 Pinot Gris (must be purchased separately).

Join Nicole and Julie for a Virtual Food & Wine Cooking Class hosted taking place on May 25, 2023, from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm Pacific Time.

Bring the wine enthusiast experience into your home in a meaningful way when you pair a popular Willamette Valley Vineyards wine with two unique recipes. For this session, we'll be pairing recipes with Pinot Gris. With instructions from Nicole, you'll create a fresh entrée of Citrus Avocado Quinoa Salad with Citrus Tahini Vinaigrette and Sautéed Prawns followed by a tangy and elegant Olive Oil Cake with Honey Yogurt Frosting and Pineapple Compote.

The Admission Only cost is $45 per household. This includes access to the live cooking class taught over Zoom on May 25th, recipes, shopping lists and instructions. We hope you can cook alongside us during the live Zoom, or watch a recording of the class at a later time.

About our 2022 Pinot Gris:

On the Nose: The wine gracefully incorporates blonde tones with lucidity in the glass. Aromas of guava, passion fruit and honeysuckle balance with a natural minerality from the local terroir.

On the Palate: The fresh flavors of golden apple, pear and melon invite the consumer to experience in tandem both aroma and taste. The perceived sweetness and natural acidity show a balance to the wine with a rich, mid-palate and lingering finish.

Food Pairing: Enjoy this refreshing dry white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings including Oregon Dungeness crab, grilled salmon, baked white fish with basil tapenade. Seasonal salads and medium cheeses.
