Winemaker Dinner June 29, 2014 at Latitude One in Dallas, OR

We love to pair our chef's creations with the perfect wine. We think it enhances the entire dining experience.

Latitude One Restaurant, 904 Main St. in Dallas, OR is partnering with Skylite Cellars from Walla Walla, WA to introduce two new release wines during an impressive five course Winemaker’s Dinner which includes four wines and an aperitif on Sunday, June 29. Cost is $68 per person.

“We’re very pleased to be able to introduce the 2013 Sierra, which is 50 percent Sauvignon Blanc, 50 per cent Semillion and the 2013 Vognier, a varietal,” said Restaurateur Marlene Cox. “We’ll have the visiting Washington State winemaker here with us too to provide the back story of these wines.”

Latitude One Winemaker’s Dinners have become notable events.

“We always have such fun with our Winemaker’s Dinners,” Cox said. “We love to pair our chef’s creations with the perfect wine. We think the perfect paring enhances the entire dining experience.”

Wine parings make certain elements, such as texture and flavor; complement one another during the meal.

“At this Winemaker’s Dinner, we’re also going to feature two of our restaurants’ most popular wines, Skylite Cellars Soiree and Cabernet Sauvignon,” she added.

Cox explains that people who enjoy fine wine and excellent food often appreciate good music and are delightful conversationalists.

“That’s what really makes our Winemaker’s Dinners so special,” she said. “Our guests tell us the meals are wonderful, the wine perfect and the company better.”
