About This Item

Overview: Grace and Ken Evenstad first arrived and settled in the Dundee Hills in the Willamette Valley in 1989. At that time, the couple had spent over 20 years together in Minnesota building a successful business, a loving family, and a deep appreciation for the wines of Burgundy.  The Evenstads had faith in Oregon early on, before there was a national market for domestic Pinot Noir. When the time came to pursue their longtime dream of growing and producing world-class Pinot Noir, they invested in a 42-acre hilltop estate that had just been logged in the beautiful Dundee Hills of Oregon. With the support of their family - and to the surprise of many of their friends in Minnesota – the Evenstads established Domaine Serene, effectively creating Oregon’s luxury wine industry. They named the winery after their daughter, Serene, and their first vineyard on the estate was named after their son, Mark Bradford Evenstad.

To make Grand Cheval, we take the best characteristics of two very different varietals, Syrah from the Walla Walla Valley, and our own Pinot Noir grapes from the Dundee Hills, and blend them in perfect harmony to create our own version of the ideal “steak-house wine.” This wine is substantial enough for the richest of dishes, yet soft enough to please any palate.

Tasting Notes: Tantalizing aromatics of dark fruit and caramel with notes of savory black pepper, coffee, and dried rosemary. The innovation of this blend brings forth a balance on the palate while impeccably pairing with a variety of dishes. The plush yet structured mouthfeel ensures an elegant and balanced wine that will age gracefully over time.

Pairing: Braised venison, mezze plate, roasted duck.
