Coho October Winemakers Dinner – Savor the San Juan Islands


We have no sooner finished one one dinner that we are busy planning our next dinner for October 11th – Flights of Reds. We had a staff tasting earlier this week to decide on the menu and pairings. It was alot of hard work but someone has to do it:)! We are really excited about showcasing these voluptuous reds from Cuillin Hills, Northwest Totem Cellars, Pomum Winery and Stephenson Cellars. Each are very small boutique wine makers who take meticulous care in handcrafting their wines. We are also thrilled that at least 3 out of the four will join us on the 11th for dinner. It should be another great evening. For reservations, please call us at 360 378 3660. Hope to have you join us.

    I love checking your blog- it makes the islands seem so much closer. I can’t believe its 3 years since we spent our honeymoon with you, I can still picture the view from the orcas suite.
    3 years on we are the proud parents of a 1 year old little girl, holidays in the US are definately a few years away so we get our island fix by using your cook pook- plum cake and fruit crisp are our favourite.
    Hoping you and Dave are still loving being inn keepers. As soon as we win the lottery we’ll be back
    much love
    Anna, Tom and Jocelyn Massey
