Bounty of Yamhill County 2017 – The Big Night

Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend The Big Night as part of the Bounty of Yamhill County at Sokol Blosser Winery in Dundee, Oregon, It was a night celebrating the chefs, vintners and farmers of Yamhill County which is located in the heart of Oregon’s wine country.

I brought along my friend Lena from Lena’s Kitchen Blog and we had the most fantastic night filled with yummy bites and amazing Oregon Pinot Noir, Rosé, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. I was especially happy because I got to try samplings from a bunch of restaurants in the area that I’ve been meaning to try. Those that particularly stood out were Thistle, Ruddick/Wood and Pura Vida.

I also had the chance to try out some local wines that I’ve been meaning to sample. The Pinot Noir from Domaine Roy and Gran Moraine’s Rosé were a couple of my newly discovered favorites.

All proceeds from Bounty of Yamhill County benefit the Yamhill Enrichment Society, which focuses on promoting early childhood literacy and music development. The event lasts the entire weekend and has other great culinary adventures like horseback riding through the vineyards, hiking in an olive grove or kayaking on the Willamette River. Last year I attend a special Wine Country Cooking Class at Dobbes Family Estate as part of Bounty of Yamhill County. Next year’s celebration will be held August 24-26, 2018. Be sure to check out their website to learn more about upcoming events.

Thank you to Bounty of Yamhill County for providing me with a media guest pass. As always, all opinions are my own.
