Wine dinner with Lachini Vineyards at Fig Bistro April 15

Press release

From Fig Bistro:

Spring has sprung!!! The weather has been absolutely delightful so far this week and we have spring fever at FIG. What better way to get the season started than with a wine dinner?!

On Tuesday, April 15th we have the honor of hosting winemaker Ron Lachini of Lachini Vineyards, Willamette Valley, Oregon at our little restaurant. Our wine rep put together this little blurb about Ron and his wife Marianne…

“Ron & Marianne Lachini began with a dream to start a small, family-owned estate vineyard focused entirely on producing uncompromising Pinot Noir in the Chehalem Mountains of Willamette Valley, Oregon. Lachini Vineyards believes that the vineyard is the wine. As such, the goal remains to nurture their 45-acre vineyard’s distinctive terroir and produce world class Pinot Noirs of prodigious quality for generations to come. Their commitment begins as biodynamic growers of world-class grapes with a desire to have these turn into exquisite wines that bear measurement against the test of time.”

Chef Jones and I tasted the wines to be featured just yesterday and we’re extremely excited about this dinner. Not only do Ron and Marianne produce exceptional Pinot Noirs, but we’ll also be featuring dishes paired with their Pinot Gris, Rose, and Cabernet Sauvignon Blend (called “La Bestia” with good reason). It’s been a while since we’ve hosted a wine dinner so Chef Jones is pulling all the stops! We are absolutely thrilled to have Ron Lachini in our restaurant!

As a bonus, we’ll be raffling off a Magnum of the Lachini Vineyards Chehalem Mountain Pinot Noir, 2008 at the event.
