Chateau Lorane Wine Dinner


We're delighted to partner with Chateau Lorane for a four-course wine dinner on Tuesday, November 27 from 5:30-7:30pm.

Chateau Lorane, located just 15 miles from Eugene was founded by Linde and Sharon Kester in 1984 when they planted a 30 acre vineyard in the historic Lorane Valley. Linde is known for making wines from rare and unusual grapes such as Marechal Foch, Flora, Baco Noir, Grand Noir and several port style wines. He enjoys utilizing these obscure grape varietals to make non-traditional blends and in general tries to make his wines as distinctive as possible.

Ambrosia's culinary staff, led by Rory Valentino, will prepare a four-course dinner inspired by the Lorane valley with each course designed to complement the wines. The price of the dinner is $65 per person and space is limited to 24 people. All of the wines will be available for purchase and you'll receive 10% off 12 or more bottles. Reserve your prepaid spot today by calling Ambrosia at 541-342-4141.
