It’s time to give Oregon Gamay Noir its due. I Love Gamay is a first of its kind event that brings together adventurous wine lovers and Oregon Gamay producers for a great excuse to throw a party celebrating our favorite under-the-radar varietal.
Elder Hall plays host to two days of events that lets you get to know Oregon Gamay, including an all Oregon Gamay tasting salon on day one and a multi-course dinner featuring legendary Portland chefs, Jason French and Cathy Whims with some storied local wine veterans on day two. Local producers and wine experts will be on hand to offer up their knowledge on this lesser known gem. Yes, Oregon Pinot Noir has earned its place in wine history, but we want to blow the lid off Oregon’s other noir rouge grape!
We will be hosting an EPIC dinner to close out I Love Gamay week with a special dinner with Jason French + Cathy Whims We'll be featuring a simple French menu that perfectly compliments our Gamay selections. The true flavors of the wine will take center stage. The meal will be served with both rare historic and current vintage Oregon Gamay Noir and French Beaujolais wines side by side. Each course takes inspiration from French Gamay regions while taking advantage of Oregon’s seasonal ingredients. Read more about I Love Gamay Here!
