Cork & Barrel, the Central Oregon Wine Event
Cork & Barrel is an annual wine and food event series featuring a different wine region each year in Bend, Oregon. Wineries are paired with local and visiting chefs to create a tasting experience like no other in Central Oregon. Cork & Barrel is held annually in July at Broken Top Club and is proud to feature the winemakers of the West Coast. Guests gather under sunny skies at Broken Top Club for an afternoon of top flight wine and food pairings, a five course gourmet dinner, paired with a choice of hand-selected wines by the featured wine region, or craft beers, a varied silent auction and thrilling live auction including wines from all over the world, exclusive travel experiences, unique dining opportunities and much more. Also included in the Cork & Barrel event are a number of local and regional guest chefs who partner with wineries for exclusive winemaker dinners and provide small plates to pair with tasting wines during the reception portion of the event. All proceeds from Cork & Barrel benefit KIDS Center’s direct services for children and families impacted by child abuse. KIDS Center is a non-profit child abuse intervention center dedicated to the prevention, evaluation and treatment of child abuse.
