Bud & Ally's Presents 29th Annual Seeing Red Vintner Dinner Nov 7
October 1, 2019 by SoWal Staff
Every Year Bud & Ally's ushers in fall and kicks off the 29th annual Seeing Red Wine Festival.
Executive Chef David Bishop, who marks 12 years at Bud & Alley’s this year, will create a special four-course sea and farm-to-table harvest dinner paired with wines selected by winemaker Brent Stone of King Estate Winery, who will be showing King Estate Signature Series collection of wines. Situated at the tip of the Willamette Valley in Oregon, King Estate Winery is a 1,033-acre organic winery founded in 1991 by Ed King, Jr. and his son, Ed King III.
Winemaker Brent Stone has more than 15 years’ experience in quality assurance, quality control, research and development. He began his career as an R&D chemist and managed food laboratories and quality assurance programs for several years in the dairy industry. Stone joined King Estate as the Lab Manager in 2011 and quickly gained an appreciation for wine. He received formal training in enology at Washington State University and became a winemaker at King Estate in 2016.
“Hosting special dinners like this personifies our mission of celebrating good food, good people and good times,” said Bud & Alley’s founder/owner Dave Rauschkolb. “This annual event is particularly special to us, because it was one of those organic events that took hold and the wine festival grew from there. For all of us here at Bud & Alley’s it’s all about gathering together and eating wonderful food and drink with great family and friends.”
The Vintner dinner is $225 per person and reservations are required.
