HOOD RIVER, Ore. — Enjoy the culmination of the 2016 Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition with a special backroom tasting Friday, Oct. 7 in the Benson Ballroom of the historic Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River, Ore.
Andy Perdue, Eric Degerman, master facilitator Hank Sauer and his wife, Nancy, collaborate with executive chef Kaleen Deehr and wine director Randa Wolf to create food pairings with the wines in competition.
There is limited availability in the ballroom, which will feature wines from the competition, so reserve your place today.
Cost is $55 per person. The Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition is the only judging in the United States in which the wines are nominated by the judges. In this case, the judges were selected from Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Idaho and are influential wine professionals who are in retail, wholesale, restaurants and wine writing. (See a list of the judges.)
Last year’s judging received 561 entries and best of show went to Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery in Oliver, British Columbia for its 2014 Old Vines Auxerrois.
