Winemakers’ Dinner

The Rypien Foundation's annual Winemakers' Dinner is a dining experience unlike any other! Held at Northern Quest Resort and Casino, this gourmet dinner features a five-course meal carefully paired with pre-selected, ultra-premium wines from two of Washington State's premier wineries  Amavi Cellars and Gordon Estate. Guests enjoy unique wine and food pairings, a chance to visit with the winemakers, premier silent and live auctions, and most importantly, an opportunity to raise a glass in helping the Rypien Foundation provide hope for local families battling childhood cancer.

The 2017 event will be held on Saturday, March 11th and will feature the wine from Amavi Cellars and Gordon Estate.
