Meet the Cider Makers!
Enjoy an exclusive evening with the cidermakers at the 4th annual Cider Makers Dinner.
The one-of-a-kind evening takes place at Olalla Winery with serene views of the vineyard as the backdrop.
Each year, the dinner is conceived, created and served by award-winning local chefs paired with some of the most amazing ciders produced in the Pacific Northwest, poured
by the cidermakers who make the magic in the barrels happen.
Savor regional ciders and perries masterfully paired with the farm/line-fresh seasonally inspired menu. Our 2019 guest chef is Michelle Carlton, of Ocean5 and Table 47. Chef has over 20 years in the culinary industry. Prior to joining the Table 47 team, she was the head chef at Hard Drive Cafe in Longmont, CO.
Included in the six-course dinner is a welcome pour and passed appetizers on arrival,
a cider to pair with every course, and a handcrafted take-home ceramic cider vessel.
The interactive dinner immerses you in the experience, as you learn about each course and how it pairs with a particular cider, tasting techniques, cider lore, the process – from orchard to glass – and more. Acoustic guitar by Rob Rigoni sets the evening's ambiance.
