Members and guests,
Please join us at 6:30 on Wednesday, December 12th for another awesome wine dinner with guest speaker Matt Rice.
Since 1999, Owen Roe Winery has been producing exceptional wines from Yakima Valley, WA and Willamette Valley, OR. Originally from County Cavan, Ireland, owner and winemaker David O'Reilly has been working with wine for thirty years. The winery is named after David's ancestor, Owen Roe O'Neill, a 17th century Irish Patriot. All his wines balance ripe, lush fruit with firm acidity and low pH, to create fragrant and complex wines with elegant structure.
Our guest speaker, Matt Rice started as a “cellar rat” at Owen Roe in 2005, and worked his way up to National Sales Manager in 2012. He'll tell you about each of the selections as you enjoy your way through a six-course pairing that we really enjoyed creating. We had some fun with this one.
