Entertaining was a gateway drug into wine for us. We built the tasting room to pour wine, sure, but it was also a chance for us to build our dream entertaining space – somewhere to throw parties, fire up the grills on Sunday nights, set gorgeous tables for al fresco dinners, and curate special events for you, our Annual Share members. The summer event series is a chance to slow down, raise a glass and let us entertain you. From highly lauded chefs outside our region to the best local chefs like you’ve never seen them before, to parties all about Rosè, we’re just getting started….read on for Summer ’22 events.
Have you ever wondered what chefs cook for their people? This meal is built around a favorite food and communal eating style that comes with…Ethiopian cuisine! Traditionally served around a table full of friends and including some eating with your hands, this is a food style with rich unique flavors and a whole host of unique wine pairing options. We can only imagine what Chef’s take on traditional favorites like injera bread, samsoe, and others will be. We’ll provide the bibs, yes, really.
If you love Richard’s PNW fare with a southern twist wait until you see what else is in his repertoire…Did you know Richard is a classically French trained chef? For this special evening he will create a menu inspired by elegant French fare with his signature southern touches. We’re so excited to host the Hattaways for another spectacular event at Alton.
We were absolutely blown away by Tournant last Fall Release and cannot wait to welcome them back this Labor Day weekend. Expect hyper-seasonal ingredients, a farm to table style meal to pair perfectly with our newly released fall wines. Whether they cook over the firepit again, the new parrilla, or their own amazing toys its going to be a memorable harvest feast. We’ll open the night with happy hour snacks and bubbles before a seated dinner al fresco.
*SOLD OUT* Lauded chef, food curator, adventurer and creator of “Not Without Salt”, will be here as our final Chef Spotlight of the season. With a focus on seasonal, often foraged ingredients, Ashley will be fun to watch with the outdoor kitchen setup at the winery and add a rustic element to our fall harvest dinner.
