On March 13, Metrovino will host a one-time-only dinner featuring the cellared wines of The Eyrie Vineyards from the 1980’s and dishes inspired from that decade’s star chefs. The 80s were an important period of growth for the Oregon wine industry. Local wines rose to well-deserved national prominence, thanks in a large part to pioneering producers like The Eyrie Vineyards.
Metrovino’s 1980s dinner will give diners a rare glimpse at how these storied wines have developed through the decades. Eyrie’s wines have aged beautifully. The Chardonnays are a revelation. Eyrie’s 1975 Pinot Noir was the first wine to bring attention to Oregon and their winemaking standards have never wavered. It’s a real privilege to be able to serve library wines like these.
Executive chef Dustin See - whose dishes were recently praised as skillful and endearingly imaginative by the Oregonian’s David Sarasohn - will take inspiration from the 80s: courses will be drawn from the menus of the great food thinkers of the decade, including Daniel Boulud, Hubert Keller and Marco Pierre White, and each dish especially designed to transport the diner through time.
Eyrie’s 1983 Chardonnay will be highlighted by an updated take on Marco Pierre White’s famous Oysters and Tagliatelle. A 1980 Pinot Noir – flavored with the dust from Mt. St. Helens – will accompany Hubert Keller’s lamb.
If wine lovers are unable to attend, all four of The Eyrie’s 1980s vintages will be available by the glass for a limited time after the dinner.
