CHOW restaurant was opened in 2007 as one of the first “farm to fork” restaurants in Bend and has grown to be a beloved hot spot of culinary delights. CHOW Owner/Chef, David Touvell, studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Portland and favors good vibes over pretention and keeps dishes simple, so the flavors stay front and center. The CHOW attitude partners perfectly with Quivira Vineyards, a premium producer of Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rhone varietals built upon intentional wine growing and a thoughtful commitment to sustainable and organic farming. This Healdsburg, CA based winery utilizes low-input winemaking techniques and winemaker, Hugh Chappelle, likes to develop complexity by judiciously using a few techniques: blending, co-fermentation, phased harvesting and barrel aging – both oak and acacia wood. Chappelle’s experience in the winemaking world is lengthy, and we very much look forward to this dynamite, and complementary, winemaker dinner combination!
