What’s the pass get you at Terra Blanca?
We’re glad you asked!
All Block Party participants will be led down to our Barrel Caves where Winemaker and Owner Keith Pilgrim and Assistant Winemaker Randy Swanson will be leading guests through a past, present, future of winemaking. In the caves, guests will try a libraried wine, a current vintage, and a barrel sample before being led to the Red Fermentation Bay for a sample of the recent harvest.
After that, guests can go upstairs to our Bella Vista Room where student chefs from Washington State University have created an assortment of dishes to pair with Terra Blanca wines. It’ll be a flight of food and wine, and the chefs will be on hand to explain their creations while our Wine Educators talk about the wines.
The party kicks off early on Friday night with many wineries hosting Winemaker’s Dinners. Tickets for Terra Blanca’s are sold out, and 37 people will enjoy a 9-course meal and wine pairing. Much like the pairings for Saturday’s festivities, the courses for the Winemaker’s Dinner were each planned and will be prepared by the student chefs of WSU under the guidance and tutelage of Jamie Callison, the Executive Chef of WSU and author of “The Crimson Spoon.”
Because of the dinner Friday night, Café Orsa will be closed on Friday. Never fear! There will be plenty of food to go around Saturday and Sunday when Café Orsa holds its regular hours: 12-5 p.m.
Also, for those curious about how Cuisine de Vin went last week… The Children’s Developmental Center raised over $50,000! Thank you so much for your generous support! We really couldn’t do it without you.
Veni, Vidi, Vinum!
