La Paulée des Gorges du Columbia- A Burgundian End of Harvest Celebration!!

Enjoy Phelps Creek Burgundian style wine & elegant French cuisine at our end of harvest celebration of all things Burgundy – La Paulée!
With Phelps Creek Vineyards’ Burgundian style wine, the “La Paulée des Gorges de la Rivière Columbia” is our homage to La Paulée de Meursault Festival traditionally held in France at the end of the grape harvest. Well, the harvest is in, and we are ready to celebrate!
La Paulée de les Gorges de la Rivière Columbia brings the spirit and conviviality of La Paulée de Meursault to our beautiful estate in Hood River, Oregon. Please come celebrate the end of harvest with the Phelps Creek team in our barrel room, together with Chef Shane Eagan of Four and Twenty Blackbirds.
The celebrations in Burgundy were originally held in 1923 when one of Burgundy’s most respected wine growers, Jules Lafon, wished to revive the traditions of medieval Cistercian monks who celebrated their vineyard laborers at the end of grape harvest. Lafon invited 35 of his friends at his Meursault domaine to a small banquet in the barrel room. Neighboring wine growers decided it was a fabulous idea and by 1932, it was established officially as an annual event. The current celebrations in Burgundy are now highly sought after and tickets are often booked a year in advance!
Tickets: Are limited! Only 20 available. Tickets include a five course French feast in our barrel room, paired with Phelps Creek Vineyards’ premium wine selections (and maybe some of owner Bob’s surprise favorites from the cellar!). Special day-of discounts will be offered at the event.
COVID Precautions- This event will be a small, intimate gathering of 20 plus staff members. Proof of vaccination is required as we will be having a communal dining experience. If you are signing up with a group & would like to be seated together, please provide that information upon booking. Please call Lisa at (971) 276-4858 or email for special arrangements.
