Food and Wine Pairing

First Friday at Burnt Bridge Cellars

The grapes are ripening and it’s almost harvest season! Celebrate the wines that are about to be made—and the delicious, award-winning wines that already have been made!—at Burnt Bridge Cellars this First Friday with live music, original art, and great food from Class Cooking.

Tom May—a professional folk singer for more than four decades—writes and plays his own music, as well as eloquently interpreting the songs of others. He performe for audiences throughout the U.S., Canada, and overseas. Originally from the plains of Nebraska, May has called Toronto, Boston, St. Louis, and Omaha home, but has stayed in the Northwest since 1996. On 12 and six-string guitars, he accompanies his baritone voice with intricate stylings rarely heard in folk music. His concerts feature stories, humor, and occasionally even the Irish pennywhistle. He has appeared on dozens of radio and television programs, including the weekly radio/TV program River City Folk, National Public Radio’s syndicated Mountain Stage, Radio Eirhenn’s Andy O’Mahoney show in Ireland, and the Canadian Broadcast Corporation’s Ian Tyson TV Show.

Glenn Miller, whose photography will be displayed in Burnt Bridge’s tasting room this month, is a retired entrepreneur and award-winning photographer. His photos at Burnt Bridge Cellars focus primarily on landscapes and profiles on the beauty of the Pacific Northwest from the Painted Hills to Oregon Coast and everywhere in between. You can see more of his work at glenmiller.smugmug.com and 2can2images.com.

Finally, the food: Chef Kim Mahan of Class Cooking (just next door to Burnt Bridge) will whip up some small plates to go with all that great wine. You can enjoy meat and vegetarian pizzas, Caesar salad, and panna cotta with fresh berries.

Then come back over the long weekend for the Southwest Washington Winery Association Food and Wine Pairing. Burnt Bridge Cellars will be serving food from Class Cooking with a wine pairing from 1 to 5 p.m. each of those days.
