The Dundee Hills of Oregon’s Willamette Valley is where your great getaway unfolds. It was in these world-renowned hills that Grace & Ken Evenstad’s amazing adventure unfolded in 1989 as they sought the best site in the world for growing and producing world-class Pinot Noir. They invested in a 42-acre hilltop estate that had just been logged in the Dundee Hills. Since its inception, their properties have expanded to 1,000 acres, and Domaine Serene has been recognized as an iconic producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the global stage by collectors and critics alike.
The Evenstads have created the perfect Pacific Northwest discovery tour with an exclusively elevated experience in the world-renowned Willamette Valley. And at the award-winning Domaine Serene estate, high atop the Dundee Hills, you will settle in at the Winery Hill House where day one consists of majestic views and breathtaking sunsets accompanied by Domaine Serene’s award-winning Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Rosé on your personal patio. Later, the winery’s culinary team will prepare an exclusive dinner for you, expertly paired with Domaine Serene wines.
On day two, you’ll board your personal helicopter and take in the beautiful scenery as you fly over the six Domaine Serene Vineyard Estates. Upon landing, you’ll be whisked off for a tour and tasting of the wines of Domaine Serene, Maison Evenstad and Château de la Crée, with small bites prepared by their culinary team. That evening, a driver will transport you to the upscale Domaine Serene Wine Lounge in the charming town of Lake Oswego, where you’ll savor an exceptional chef-prepared dinner served alongside award-winning wines.
Day three is yours to explore the beauty of the Valley. The Domaine Serene team is available to help guide your search for activities, wineries and dinner options. Experience destination shopping and restaurants in Portland, or perhaps relax on the beautiful Oregon coast for a day.
The following morning, a rare barrel tasting with Domaine Serene’s winemaker, Michael Fay, will culminate in you selecting your favorite barrel for a special bottling of two cases per couple of Domaine Serene wine. Your personally selected wine will be bottled when ready, numbered and signed by Michael Fay, Ken and Grace. You will be the only people in the world to have this wine!
That afternoon, you’re invited into the underground caves for a chef-driven, four-course, eight-wine food pairing that explores the Oregon vineyard estates alongside wines from Château de la Crée, in the Côte d’Or region of France. As the sun dips in the sky, you’ll sip fine wines and enjoy a stroll through beautiful gardens with Grace & Ken at their home.
Sound inviting? Bid high and head for the hills.
