Over 500 new Founders joined us for the Groundbreaking Celebration at Elton Winery in 2015.

You are invited to the Groundbreaking & SeVein Celebration at our new Pambrun Vineyard on Sunday, May 15th at 1:30 pm at the future vineyard site in  the Walla Walla Valley AVA above Milton-Freewater, Oregon. We are asking Founders to bring their families and their shovels for the historic group photograph and the opportunity to plant a Cabernet Sauvignon vine in the vineyard. Our Consulting Winemaker Jon Meuret, the Pambrun family, Architect Joe Chauncy of Boxwood and the SeVein Managing Partners will also be in attendance. This event is complimentary and open to Shareholders, prospective Shareholders and their families.

Plant a Cabernet Sauvignon vine at the Groundbreaking & SeVein Celebration on May 15th.

In addition to this event, we will also be hosting a Winemaker's Dinner on Saturday, May 14th at 6:30 pm at the Marcus Whitman Hotel featuring Willamette Valley Vineyards and local Walla Walla wines paired with four-courses from The Marc's Executive Chef. Tickets are $75 per person and seating is limited. Reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please understand this will sell out early. We look forward to sharing a meal, stories and a dance floor with our Shareholders.

We anticipate many of you will be traveling in to participate. We have included accommodation recommendations below and encourage you to book your reservations soon, since May is such a busy time in the Walla Walla Valley.
