Enjoy every shade of rosé, the most beloved drink of the season, and Greek-inspired dishes from chef Althea Grey Potter, at this all-rosé wine dinner
PORTLAND, Ore. (May 17, 2018) – Southeast Wine Collective co-founder/owner Kate Norris and Oui! Wine Bar + Restaurant chef Althea Grey Potter are teaming up once again for their annual Rosé Dinner, and toast to spring. This year, chef Potter has designed a Greek-inspired spring menu of seasonal dishes, expertly paired alongside wines highlighting the best of the season. Spend a delightful spring evening with this lady-team on Sunday, June 3rd, as they present this special dinner, prepared by chef Potter and sous chef, Dan Velisek. Each course will feature fresh spring ingredients paired with a different rosé – two cult status selections from Europe, and two made on site at the Southeast Wine Collective. Guests will have the opportunity to pick up any additional bottles of the wines they love most that evening, including the perennial favorite Division-Village L’Avoiron Rosé of Gamay Noir, plus guests will have the opportunity to join the Southeast Wine Collective Club if they haven’t already. One of the Winery’s most popular events, this annual rosé wine dinner always sells out so purchase a ticket and take advantage of this perfect opportunity to try a wide selection of just-released wines.
