Tenet Wines Winemaker Dinner,
feat. SUD-OUEST Flavors!

Tuesday January 15, 6PM

Chef Christian Potvin will exquisitely pair a five-course dinner featuring France’s Sud-Ouest region with excellent wines from Tenet Wines. Join us to enjoy the variety of flavors from this Washington-France collaboration winery.

A project between the iconic Washington state winery Chateau Ste. Michelle and the acclaimed Rhône winemaker Michel Gassier, Tenet Wines establishes a parallel between Syrah’s cradle and most renowned region, the Rhône Valley, and its tremendous potential on Washington’s basaltic slopes. Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Head Winemaker Bob Bertheau and Michel Gassier have combined their experience with the assistance of Southern Rhône's famous enology consultant, Philippe Cambie, and crafted wines from both regions, aiming to show the wines' respective character and their common excellence.


Bob Bertheau and Michel Gassier will be with us to discuss the winemaking process, describe wines and answer any questions your may have about Tenet Wines!
