Fourth 2018 AAWC-Ann Arbor Tasters Guild Event / AWS
BRINGS BACK MEMORIES Winemaker Dinner
with Ryan Clifford, Harvest Winemaker & National Brand Manager,
Willamette Valley Vineyards

TUESDAY, April 17 at 7:00 pm
at THE FILLMORE (previously Terry B's),
7954 Ann Arbor St, Dexter

Memories of our very first Ann Arbor Tasters Guild (then Ann Arbor Les Amis du Vin) winemaker dinner back in 1974 with Patricia Campbell, owner of Willamette Valley‛s Elk Cove Vineyards. Today, her son is the winemaker

Memories of our first Willamette Valley Vineyards dinner at Quarter Bistro (the year fails me).

Memories of Bob Simburger, an original shareholder in Willamette Valley Vineyards and frequent European travel companion. Bob introduced WVV wines to Michigan, placing them with Ann Arbor distributor Rave Associates, which represents the wines to this day.

Jim Bernau founded Willamette Valley Vineyards in 1983. He‛s guided it in growth to 500 acres of vines and 900 shareholders. Clearly, his is a major, sustainably-oriented Oregon winegrowing venture. Making excellent wines.

Changes continue at Terry B‛s, which switched ownership last year when it was purchased from Mr. Terry B. himself by a Dexter entrepreneur/restaurateur. It will be closed for much of March for renovation. Next week, an announcement will be posted regarding a name change too.

What will not change is the restaurant‛s dedication to a crack kitchen staff. We‛ve seen turnover in that department over the years but very little waiving in the quality of the cuisine.

Here‛s the Willamette Valley Vineyards wine list for our April 17 dinner. We‛ll get samples to Executive Chef Adam Boonstra and staff for the purpose of menu conception, and when the menu is ready, Sally will post it on the VC website and send you all an email.
