DURHAM, N.C., August 20, 2018 – Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, the premier AAA Four Diamond luxury inn and golf club located on the campus of Duke University in Durham, N.C., will host the Sokol Blosser Wine Dinner featuring selections from the Oregon-based winery on Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 6:45 p.m., encouraging wine enthusiasts and their taste buds to blend into the fall spirit.
Wine connoisseurs are invited to join Executive Chef Jason Cunningham and Chef de Cuisine Murray Healy for a thoughtfully curated multi-course menu, composed of locally sourced southern dishes and complemented by the evening’s west coast wine pairings from Sokol Blosser. With Winery Representative Sara Manucy on hand to guide attendees through the pairings portion of the dinner, the truly unique Sokol Blosser pairings are guaranteed to uncork the savory palatability for your taste buds.
Based in Dundee Hills, Ore., Sokol Blosser, a family-owned and operated winery, is considered a pioneer of Oregon's wine industry. In 1971 with a meager five acres, the family planted their first grapes with borrowed equipment in the Dundee Hills region of Williamette Valley. Now, with more than 500 wineries and more than 19,000 acres of vineyards, Sokol Blosser is an integral part of the Oregon wine industry, creating world-class wines for more than 40 years.
The Sokol Blosser Wine Dinner is hosted by the Fairview Dining Room, a AAA Four Diamond rated restaurant, and costs $85 per person, or $70 for Executive Club members, which includes the Sokol Blosser wine pairings. The event will take place on the Fairview Patio, weather permitting.
