Mark Bjornson, Eola-Amity Hills Winegrowers Association President, led efforts to revive the popular event: “… I am thrilled to bring it back from the ashes. It’s a lot of work for a volunteer-led organization, but we are driven by our passion to share our craft and to provide a uniquely comprehensive tasting experience with exquisite culinary pairings.” The celebration has historically occurred annually during, or close to, the Spring Equinox, but the event has been dormant since 2014. “And the beautiful Zenith Vineyard setting is the icing on the cake.” Mark Bjornson – EAHWA President, Bjornson Vineyards

“I’m thrilled to hear that the Eola-Amity Hills Equinox Celebration of Wine and Food is returning this year,” said Michael Alberty. “The wines from the Eola-Amity Hills AVA I’ve reviewed for Wine Enthusiast Magazine over the past year have reminded me of the region’s phenomenal quality. I can’t wait to attend this event and have the opportunity to taste so many Eola-Amity Hills wines and visit face-to-face with all of the talented producers.” Michael Alberty – The Oregonian, Wine Enthusiast
