Chef Neil Clooney, Ashland OR
Precept Wines, Pacific Northwest

Chef Neil Clooney is the two-time “Oregon Iron Chef” winner and lover of all things meat. He is the owner of bird & rye restaurant in Ashland, Oregon. One of his favorite riverside meals to prepare is braised beef short ribs with risotto and gremolata paired with a bold-tasting Syrah or Cabernet. Neil’s menus are locally-sourced in the Oregon area and his farm-to-table offerings provide an extraordinary culinary experience that pairs perfectly with this Wine on the River event.

Choice varietals from Precept Wine will be thoughtfully paired with delicious cuisine and presented by their knowledgeable wine representative.

Of all the rivers that flow through Idaho, perhaps the most spectacular is the Middle Fork of the Wild and Scenic Salmon River. Considered the state’s “Blue Ribbon” river, the Middle Fork Salmon boasts non-stop, 100 Class III-IV whitewater rapids in 100 miles, natural hot springs, and excellent trout fishing. And then there’s the scenery—soft meadows that roll towards the base of soaring mountains, craggy canyons ribboned with waterfalls, deep green forests, and grassy hills dotted with wildflowers—the diversity and beauty of the Middle Fork is stunning.
