Wine Maker Dinner Series
Dine side-by-side with local wine makers that we feel exemplify the Quaintrelle ethos. These monthly events will be small, intimate dinners with dishes thoughtfully paired with selections from our favorite producers of local wines. The winemaker will discuss their wines and chat with guests as we go through a multi-course dinner featuring Chef Bill Wallender's seasonal, local, Northwest-inspired cuisine.
Random Wine Company - March 22 6:30
Join Winemaker, Beau Carufel, as we pair 4 courses of Chef Bill Wallender's seasonal & local cuisine with his wines.
Beau Carufel’s Random Wine Company is a nano-winery with current production at 350 cases per year. Because the Pacific Northwest has so many superb growing regions, Beau is constantly on the lookout for new places to get grapes from. His 2012 inaugural vintage was sourced from Horse Heaven Hills AVA in Washington. Since then he’s expanded to Eastern and Southern Oregon, as well as finding and using grapes from his home AVA, the Willamette Valley.
Random Wine Company was born of Beau’s experiences during harvest 2011, where he worked at Kramer Vineyards as their intern. Perhaps frustrated with my endless questions, Trudy Kramer suggested that the next year he buy grapes and make his own wine.
In 2012 he followed her advice and bought some tempranillo and petit verdot grapes fromm Washington, launching Random Wine Company. His goal is to showcase the grapes we have here in the Pacific Northwest while doing something a little bit different from most people. For example, at Random Wine Company strives to avoid using new oak barrels, employs various percentages of whole-cluster fermentations, and works with somewhat obscure varieties.
