Red Ridge Farms/Durant Vineyards wine club summer BBQ

Red Ridge Farms/Durant Vineyards wine club summer BBQ

It was fun to be a part of the 1st wine club summer BBQ at Durant Vineyards this year.  It was a gorgeous sunny day which allowed for a panoramic view of the rolling Dundee hills and the miles of grapevines.

The Red Ridge farms/Durant vineyards raven greets you at the gate as you move toward the tasting room where tables, chairs, and canopies are spread out to seat guests indulging in the pulled pork sandwiches, grilled chicken, baby red potato salad, corn on the cob, baked beans, and potato rolls.

The tables were neatly dressed with locally grown lavender and water with fresh mint leaves.  We were lucky to be able to sit next to the guitar player while we enjoyed our lunch.  The food was delicious paired with a glass of chilled 2012 Durant Vineyards Pinot Gris in a complimentary 40th anniversary logo wine glass.  Strawberry shortcake completed the lunch.

We browsed the nursery and gift shop purchasing an Arbequina olive tree and pot for our deck.  We’re looking forward to next year!
