What are you doing New Year's Eve? We asked our Tasting Room Manager, A.J. McCafferty, Vineyard Tour Guide, Tynan Pierce, and Assistant Winemaker Julian Elam what their plans entailed. Let us know in the comments what you are drinking, eating, and doing to celebrate the new year!

What are you drinking to ring in the New Year?

Moussé Fils “Special Club” Champagne for a celebration of Pinot Meunier.
Peter Lauer “Sekt” Sparkling Riesling for something a little different.
Commando G’s “La Bruja de Rozas” (Garnacha from the Sierra de Gredos) for a taste of Spain.
Finish with a touch of Calvados to aid our post-festivities digestion.

Ulysse Collin “Les Pierrieres” Blanc De Blanc is calling my name!

Billecart-Salmon & Aubry Champagne
Old Fashioneds with High West or Eagle Rare whiskey

What’s for dinner on New Year's Eve?

Julian: My ideal menu is Cornish game hens for dinner with a
Galette des Rois (large circular puff pastry with frangipani filling) for dessert.

A.J.: Normally, I am a huge fan of anything off the Raw Bar! Oysters are one of my
favorite indulgences and I always look for an excuse to consume copious amounts of
them. This year, some friends and I wanted to switch it up a bit so we will be doing a
PDX Pizza Tour, visiting 15(!) different pizzerias across the city.

Tynan: Homemade smoked salmon dip to go with the Champagne.

Do you have any favorite New Year's traditions in Oregon?

Julian: I start the year snowshoeing on Mt. Hood AND surfing at Cape Kiwanda.

A.J.: This marks my first New Year’s in Portland, so everything is new, but I’m glad to celebrate the New Year in a fantastic city, surrounded by great friends and great wine!

Tynan: Whale watching, agate hunting, and cooking with the family on the Oregon Coast.
