postheadericon Summertime ¡Salud! Results and Thank You

Summertime Salud

Thank you to everyone who joined us on July 23rd at Summertime ¡Salud! presented by the Allison Inn & Spa and hosted by Stoller Family Estate.  The breathtaking grounds at Stoller were the perfect setting for a lively al fresco wine tasting and gourmet family-style dinner by Executive Chef Sunny Jin of the Allison’s JORY restaurant.

We were honored to be joined by some incredible local and international wineries:  Alloro Vineyard, Ayoub, Brandborg Vineyard & Winery, Brittan Vineyards, Dukes Family Vineyards, Elk Cove Vineyards, Ponzi Vineyards, Raptor Ridge Winery, Stoller Family Estate, Tendril Wine Cellars, and Winderlea Vineyard & Winery, all from Oregon; and Bachelder Bourgogne, Champagne Henri Giraud and Maison Ambroise from France.

Guests were greeted with a glass of chilled Stoller Chardonnay or Henri Giraud Champagne as they arrived, and were invited to peruse the Summertime ¡Salud! Marketplace where impressive large format and rare library wines were available for purchase.  All wines were generously donated by the Summertime ¡Salud! participating wineries and members of the ¡Salud! Vintners Circle, and 100% of sales directly benefitted ¡Salud!.

Special guest Allen Meadows of Burghound said some kind words about Oregon Pinot Noir and the spectacular upcoming 2014 vintage releases during dinner, which prompted many guests to make a run to purchase pre-sale cases of the 2014 ¡Salud! Cuvées.  Only one case from each Vintners Circle winery was available at Summertime ¡Salud!, and by the end of the evening, a record 19 cases were guaranteed to a handful of lucky guests.

As a whole, the event raised an astounding $56,405 for ¡Salud!, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.  Everyone at ¡Salud! extends their sincere thanks to the 134 guests and winemakers that attended, the tremendous participating wineries, the incredible Stoller Family Estate staff for their hospitality, Executive Chef Sunny Jin and all of the JORY/Allison Inn crew for a terrific meal and service, all of our wonderful volunteer sommeliers, servers, and chefs, Amy Wesselman and everyone at the International Pinot Noir Celebration for their steadfast support, and of course the Allison Inn & Spa for their generous sponsorship of this event.  We can’t wait to do it again next year and hope to see you there!
