The world of wine can be a complicated and sometimes intimidating one; add on the element of pairing it with food and things can get even trickier. Lucky for us, enjoying a great glass of wine doesn’t have to be so hard! Some of our favorite pairings are Champagne and French fries or caramel popcorn with a Tawny Port, not anything remotely close to complicated. We definitely think there is a time and a place for a proper dinner party with extravagant courses paired with rare wines. But more often than not, we simply do not have time to put together a bougie dinner party, right?Read More
Three years ago, when we set out to host adventure dining experiences, we knew we wanted to focus on serving great food, pouring amazing wine, and fostering community. Through our Supper Series, we met our incredibly talented friend Chloé! Chloé is the author of the blog Conscious by Chloé and a true leader of the Zero Waste movement in Portland.
As we take on the challenge to reduce waste at our events, we’ve come to the realization that it is crucial to take as many small steps as possible to start making a difference. We want to invite you to join the efforts!Read More

If you are like us, you are tired of being indoors all winter. It is easy to get into a cozy routine of work, quick dinner, Netflix, repeat. To break up the Birdbox watching and Maria Kondo drawer organizing, we suggest taking your winter Hygge on a picnic! We love the outdoors all seasons of the year and winter is no exception. Winter is typically known for the snow and frigid weather, but the chilly air has so much more to offer you and is begging you to come and enjoy.Read More
Thanksgiving time is a Secret Supper favorite. It embodies everything we hold dear: intentionally gathering around a beautiful table full of our favorite people, great food and fantastic wine! As planners, we relish in the details. We order the turkey months in advance from our favorite farmer, plan the perfect sides and appetizers—a mix of traditional favorites blended with fun new options. Yes, we create a Pinterest board well in …Read More
I cannot believe we’re almost halfway through November! This fall is going by way too quickly for me. Between traveling, hosting the last Secret Supper dinner of 2018 recently and Tendue’s—my events space—first anniversary celebrations, I blinked and autumn was almost over. I am definitely so thankful I live in Oregon, where it feels that fall hangs on a little bit longer than in most places in the country. Fall is simply the best!Read More
Autumn is the perfect time to linger a little longer in the kitchen and cook those soul warming meals we crave when the weather turns chilly. It is also the perfect opportunity to switch up what you’ve been drinking to pair with these more savory meals. I put together 10 grape varieties I think you should try this fall. Cozy up, drink a glass, and decide what will become your go-to wine this season. …Read More

We are travelers at heart. We could describe every detail of our travel experience and how it changed us and steered us toward this path of intentional living, but that is a story for another day! What we will tell you is this: travel is at the core of what we do. We go places, we explore, we take it in, we come back changed. For us, travel is inspirational, it’s aspirational, and we find just as much joy in the journey as we do in the destination.Read More
Here in the Pacific Northwest, we live for summer! The thought of warm weeks ahead is what gets us through the grey and misty months of winter. We don’t dare leave the NW in the summer months, because it’s glorious! We stay close to home, with heaps of delicious produce and vibrant flowers growing everywhere.
On the topic of summertime... it’s no secret we love wine and cheese boards this time of year.Read More
Hello, friends! Danielle and Eva here—nearly three years ago, we started hosting small dinners at friends’ properties (thank you Andrea Bemis for opening your beautiful farm to us, back in 2015!) simply because we wanted to bring people together around a table full of delicious food, great wine, and endless conversation. Inspired by the lasting friendships made at our table, we …Read More
