April is Dundee Hills passport month, so we have created an event to celebrate the many businesses that mark the Dundee Hills as one of the premier winegrowing AVA's in Oregon. Our goal is to highlight, how together, we have created one of the most beautiful and sustainable lifestyles in which to live.
After checking in at Le Puy, Friday begins with a relaxing and casual dinner "Oregon style" in our barn-like venue, the Saumur Room. Red Hills Market is firing up the mobile pizza oven, creating a gourmet multi-course meal featuring fresh, local fare. Paired with our featured winery, Dobbes Family Estate, guests will be treated to a festive evening. Jason Okamoto will create the ultimate atmosphere with his talent on spanish guitar. Owner/Winemaker Joe Dobbes and his wife, Patricia Dobbes will share their story surrounding one of Oregon's premier wine producing facilities. Derived from premier Oregon fruit, Dobbes Family Estate wine is undoubtedly some of the very best wine the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
Saturday morning, guests enjoy a breakfast featuring local, organic cuisine. Insider's Wine Tours will pick the guests up and take them to their first destination, DePonte Cellars. Inspired by old growth vines, rich jory sois, and handcrafted with uncompromising quality, DePonte creates a memorable Burgundian style Pinot Noir. Our group will then head over to Red Ridge Farms. A truly unique jewel of the hills, Red Ridge is a destination for the senses. Guests will enjoy a lunch by Red Hills Provincial Dining and Durant Vineyards tastings. A tour of the Oregon Olive Mill with olive oil tasting, a visit to the beautiful Red Ridge Farms shop and gardens will inspire you to ready for spring! Finally, before we let you rest, a stop at ROCO Winery. Rollin Soles and Corby Stonebraker-Soles have realized a dream in creating their namesake winery.
Saturday evening, guests will enjoy the spectacular setting of Dundee's newest winery, Alexana. Completed just last year, both the tasting room and winery are state-of-the-art and a designers delight. The setting boasts some of the best views in the valley. Guests will enjoy the indoor/outdoor fireplace whatever our weather brings! Abby McManigle, chef at Tina's Restaurant, is guaranteed to delight with a multi-course wine paired dinner that will be an elegant finale to the weekend.
On Sunday, guests will enjoy a full breakfast including Argyle mimosas, then return to their daily lives with a fresh new perspective on sustainable living!

To be of the Earth is to know
the restlessness of being a seed
the darkness of being planted
the struggle toward the light
the pain of growth into the light
the joy of bursting and bearing fruit
the love of being food for someone
the scattering of your seeds
the decay of the seasons
the mystery of death
and the miracle of birth.
