2nd Annual ROAST

October 5, 2018

We are in preparation for one of our new favorite celebrations! 
Our 2nd Annual ROAST is scheduled for November 10th, 2018 
Pre-paid Reservations 
$45 per person

NOVEMBER 10TH, 2018 from 11-6PM
James Beard Award winning Chef and Farmer Matt Dillon will join us at the farm once again. It will be a farm gathering like no other; where muck boots and a bit of dirt on your hands is highly respected! 
Hot off the grates of our garden fire pits, enjoy a meal of fire roasted local farm meats and produce to celebrate the end of another bountiful harvest. A meal shared together, and a moment to forever remember. 
A farm party wouldn’t be right without some music. We are welcoming local favorites, The Greenback Daredevils to make this gathering a bit more lively. Going live around 1pm, we have hopes you will be ready to get a little pep in your step. 
Sip on some Gamy Noir Nouveau, made special for this event, dance because you know you want to, and enjoy a hot and gooey s’more off the blazing bonfire.
Members – This is also a celebration for you! We welcome our members, and their guests, to join in the festivities while picking up their final club allotment of the year. Members will receive a complimentary glass of wine for this event. Claim upon arrival. 

We will be using an online reservation service for this event. No tickets will be purchased directly through the winery. However, if you have questions do not hesitate to email us! 
* * * Please be aware when purchasing your tickets that your reservation time indicates the hour you can enjoy the meal. Though, we welcome you to join us any hour throughout the day to enjoy the other activities. Doors will open at 11am.

A few more details to know
 about the day… 
Please note this is not a sit down dinner, but a gathering in the vineyard in it’s rawest form. 
As part of the celebration we will be offering glass and bottle purchases to our guest. For Saturday only, 
traditional tasting flights will not be available.
Rain or shine we look forward to having you celebrate this day with us. Fires will be burning strong to keep us warm, but remember to dress accordingly.

& JetBlue
If winemaker of the year isn’t exciting enough, we have some other pleasing news for you all to know. 
As of July, JetBlue Airlines has put our lovely Rhone blend, Subduction Red on the JetBlue Mint Menu. 
“In tribute to new Mint service to Seattle, welcome aboard our first Washington State wine! Poppie and James Mantone make some of the state’s most rewarding Rhône-style reds, including this Syrah-focused blend that brims with heady blackberry fruit, cocoa and dried roses. Hearty enough for meat dishes, yet bright enough for summer.  “

They couldn’t have described it any better. We hope for any of you who choose to fly JetBlue, enjoy a glass and think of us.
