Willamette Valley Vineyards Wine Tasting

Dear Friends & Valued Customers:


We are very happy to announce that for our June wine tasting, we will be featuring Willamette Valley Vineyards from Oregon. Willamette Valley Vineyards is the first native Oregonian owned winery. Jim Bernau, the Owner first started the vineyard in 1993 by planting cool climate varietals like pinot noir, chardonnay & pinot gris. Their approach is hand grow & harvest the grapes to show the original characteristics of the varietals. They are blessed by ideal soil condition that is iron rich & also a geographic location that is on a slope so the vineyard gets more exposure to the sun. The vineyard is also 500-750 feet above the valley floors which allows them to escape the frost line. Willamette Valley Vineyards is an award winning winery & is renowned for their pinot noirs due to the climatic conditions of Willamette Valley. 


We are proud to host Mary Joli, the National Representative for the Willamette Valley Vineyards Wine Tasting. She will bring first hand experience & knowledge of the viticulture, the winery & the wine making process. We will be tasting four wines from Willamette Valley Vineyards--riesling, pinot gris, whole cluster pinot noir & estate pinot noir. Their Pinot Gris received 90 points from Wine Enthusiast & was also the 2013 Oyster Wine Award Winner. Willamette Valley Vineyards was also the 2011 Winery of the Year from Wine & Spirits magazine. In addition, this winery also practices sustainable agriculture & is the first winery to use sustainable cork stoppers certified by the Rainforest Alliance. 



Our Chef/Co-Owner, Armando Paniagua has paired the four wines of Willamette Valley Vineyards with seafood courses using crudo, searing, crusting & grilling cooking techniques. Chef Armando has paired the wines with light seafood dishes keeping the warm Kansas climate in mind. For the Pinot Gris, he is pairing a Parmesan Breadcrumb Crusted Diver Sea Scallop with citrus salad in honey-dijon vinaigrette & ending with Seared Ahi Tuna wrapped with House cured pancetta with the Estate Pinot Noir to cite a few examples from the menu.

Tofu is created by coagulating soy milk and pressing the curds into blocks. That's why sometimes it can be referred to by its literal description: bean curd. Soy sauce, soy milk and tofu are all products of the same bean. Soy milk is often curdled using the mineral gypsum, which confers upon it a high level of dietary calcium. Besides calcium, tofu is high in protein while also being low in both calories and fat.

While in many Western applications tofu serves as a healthy alternative to meat, Chinese cooking focuses on tofu as a main ingredient. At Bo Lings virtually all the tofu we serve is medium-firmness. The only exception is our home-made sweet tofu served during Dim Sum on Saturdays and Sundays. This delectable dessert, served with homemade ginger syrup, is a wonderfully light, not-too-sweet finishing touch to a delicious brunch.

As for dinner, try our traditional Ma Po Tofu (with pork or made vegetarian) or our popular Tofu Family Style. They have different textures and different tastes and are nice for a break from the staple Fried Rice and General Tso's Chicken. Take a look through the menu, however, and you'll find tofu in a few more dishes than maybe you realize!
