About Abeja Winery: Spanish for bee, the name Abeja (pronounced 'ah-BAY-ha') was chosen to honor a deep-rooted respect for the environment. The winery operates on the belief that each of us can make a difference in the world every day. Regardless of how small the gesture or detail, the difference made is worthwhile. It is with this same philosophy that Abeja crafts its wines.
A SPRING EXPERIENCE IN BLOOM: As the land awakens from its winter slumber, so do the bees.
Known for sourcing exceptional and niche ingredients and products within a 500-mile radius, Stephanie Inn’s Executive Chef Aaron Bedard and Abeja’s Executive Chef Jacob Crenshaw, celebrate winter’s end and spring’s awakening beginning with a welcome at our famed NW Wine & Beer Gathering in the Library followed by a lavish multi-course dinner featuring the seasonal generosity of the Northwest. From the Walla Walla Valley to the Oregon Coast, expect to indulge in an array of artfully inspired dishes prepared with locally and regionally grown ingredients, specifically paired with some of Walla Walla’s highly acclaimed, award-winning wines from Abeja Winery.
BE(E)YOND THE DETAILS: Located about 330 miles east of Stephanie Inn, award-winning Abeja Winery and Inn, is home to acclaimed winemakers Dan Wampfler and Amy Alvarez-Wampfler known for their consistent and methodical approach to winemaking.
A rotation of award-winning Abeja wines will flow throughout the evening, with a selection of sought-after vintages, including the celebrated Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay/Pinot Noir.
