Montinore Estate, Fire Mountain Brew House and EaT: An Oyster Bar To Host Annual Southern Crawfish Boil

Montinore Estate Crawfish Boil

Press Release:

PORTLAND, Ore. (April 14, 2014) – On Saturday, April 26, Montinore Estate, Fire Mountain Brew House and Portland’s EaT: An Oyster Bar will be bringing a bit of Cajun flavors to the Willamette Valley in celebration of the release of Montinore’s 2013 whites wines.

The talented owners behind EaT and The Parish, Ethan Powell and Tobias Hogan, will be on-hand boiling up big batches of crawfish with the usual accompaniments, shucking fresh oysters and cooking a large pot of their homemade Jambalaya at Montinore’s 230-acre estate.

To help with the celebration, Montinore invited Carlton’s Fire Mountain Brew House to join the party. Fire Mountain will be bringing their Golden Blond and Stout to pair with the feast.

“This is our third year celebrating the release of our white wines with a crawfish boil,” says owner Rudy Marchesi. “This year we wanted to include the talents of our neighbors in Carlton, Fire Mountain Brew House. It doesn’t get much better than a crisp white wine or a cold craft brew and a crawfish boil!”

Although that is plenty to keep someone stuffed for days, there is always room for dessert. Served in the southern tradition there will be a mouthwatering bread pudding to finish the meal off, while the New Iberians Zydeco Blues band will serenade guests with their Cajun blues.  Rain or shine, guests can belly up to the table with their fellow wine lovers and eat their hearts out.

The Montinore Estate team will be at the event, including the mastermind behind the new releases, white winemaker Stephen Webber. Tickets are $60 per person or $50 for wine club members.

When: Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Where: Montinore Estate, 3663 SW Dilley Road, Forest Grove, OR 97116
Cost: $60 for all you can eat fresh crawfish, tokens for oysters, Jambalaya and bread pudding, beer and wine pairings
