Madrone cellars winemaker dinner

Madrone Cellars Winemaker Dinner: October 25, 2019

Inspired by French Champagne, Bordeaux reds and the dry white wines of Alsace, Shaun and Amy Salamida are striving to bring a taste of Europe to the San Juan Islands. Their wines are made with minimal intervention, with a goal of revealing the grape, terroir and story behind each glass. Shaun has a keen interest in natural, unfiltered wines, with the goal of planting and farming an organic and bio-dynamic vineyard on San Juan Island.

Shaun and Amy manage an estate vineyard on San Juan Island, where they organically farm the Pinot Noir, Ortega, and Siegerrebe. These local grapes are used solely for Method Champenoise that will be released Summer 2020. Apart from the local estate vineyard, Madrone sources their grapes from select vineyards in Eastern Washington.

Chefs Ryan and Tim locally sourced an inspired five-course dinner using seasonal ingredients from local farms and the mainland.
