WINE TASTING WITH DASHE CELLARS
ON THE ENCHANTING ROGUE RIVER, OREGON
June 20-24, 2014
We are thrilled to announce that Dashe Cellars will team up with James Henry River Journeys (www.riverjourneys.com) for our 2nd annual whitewater journey down Oregon’s spectacular Rogue River. Last year we had our first wine tasting trip with Jimmy Katz and his crew, and it was amazingly fun and a resounding success.
Join us this year on an incredible wine tasting and river-running adventure!
In camp, we will be pouring at least 2 wines per night, including our Dry Riesling, Dry Rose, all of our Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley single-vineyard Zinfandels, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and our luscious late-harvest Zinfandel. We’ll bring out some library wines as well!
After sipping our favorite wines with hors d’ouvres, we will dine on wilderness gourmet food that has been pared with each varietal (wild Alaskan salmon, chicken fajitas, pasta primavera, and whole barbecued lamb that has been marinated for days). The food is scrumptious!
The fee for the trip is $1150 for adults and $1035 for youths 17 and under. The price of the trip includes: all on-river meals, all wines, services of professional guides, oar, paddle rafts, inflatable kayaks, and transportation from Galice, Oregon and return.
For additional information, please contact, Jimmy Katz at James Henry River Journeys for a detailed trip itinerary and additional materials.
