In April 2017 my wife and I attended a five-course wine pairing dinner, co­spon­sored by Arrowhead Golf Club in Liberal on Oregon Route 213, whose Legend’s Bar and Grill provided the dining room and the food. The other cosponsor was Pheasant Run Winery Tasting Room in Aurora, which supplied their wine.

We had never been to such an event and felt a bit apprehensive. We felt a bit like country bumpkins at the country club. As is often the case, all of our concerns were groundless, and it turned out to be a very nice experience.

For an hour and a half, we enjoyed partial glasses of wine expertly paired with tiny portions of fancy food. At the beginning of each course, Carl McKnight, the proprietor of Pheasant Run and its winemaker, introduced the wine and explained why it went well with that course’s food.

All in all this five-course wine pairing dinner was a great experience. However, I was a bit surprised because I thought that they would be more generous with the food and less generous with the wine.

During the dinner I took a total of 20 photos. The best 10 are on display in this album. For last year’s pictures, see the Pheasant Run Winery 2016 album.
