Imagine the warm earth underfoot and the sweet scent of the harvest season lingering in the air at this seventh generation farm. Lee Farms is famous for their fresh made pies, Oregon berries, fresh produce, pumpkin patch and Christmas tree farm. Wander back to the long community tables, placed center perfect in the field, candles and wine glasses glimmering in the late evening sun.
Start the evening with a spirits tasting with Double Circle Spirits and then relax into each of the 6-7 course family-style dinner, while sipping from local wines from WillaKenzie Estate.
WillaKenzie Estate is a family-owned, estate-driven winery located in the heart of Oregon’s Northern Willamette Valley. Since breaking ground more than 25 years ago, they have been passionate about crafting Pinot Noirs that convey a sense of place. They coined the moniker ‘Place Matters’—the Oregonian answer to the French concept of terroir. True to the vision of their Burgundian founder, terroir is not simply a notion; it’s core to everything they do. It’s in their name, WillaKenzie, which describes the ancient sedimentary soils on which their vines are planted.
The Double Circle Spirits story started when the Johnson family homesteaded in 1875 at the Johnson Ranch in Wasco County, 17 miles southeast of The Dalles. Several generations later, Jason Johnson decided to pursue his life-long dream of distilling spirits from the wheat of the family ranch. They bottled and sold their first Columbia Plateau Vodka in 2015. The family ranch’s wheat and it’s subtle character is the overarching theme in all of their products.
Please take note that this event starts at 5pm to allow us to enjoy as much daylight as possible.
