Crowley Wine Dinner at How to Cook a Wolf

Chef Nicole Matson and the crew at How to Cook a Wolf are looking forward to hosting a harvest dinner paired with wines from Crowley Wines on Wednesday, November 8.

There will be two seatings: one at 5:30pm and one at 8:30pm. The meal is $135++ person. Call the restaurant at (206) 838-8090 to save a spot—there are just 24 spots per seating, so snag one soon!

Winemaker Tyson Crowley will be in attendance to talk about his wonderful Oregon wines as the evening progresses—one course will be especially informative, with a side-by- side comparison of two very different single- vineyard Pinot Noirs from the same vintage.
