It’s May, and you know what that means? It’s Oregon Wine Month! Nearly 700 wineries throughout Oregon are celebrating our outstanding wine right now!

“Some of the world’s finest wines are made right here in Oregon,” said David Beck, chairman of the Oregon Wine Board, which manages the month-long promotion. “Oregon Wine Month is an opportunity for wine enthusiasts in Oregon and beyond to experience the diversity and quality of Oregon wine.”

This year’s Oregon Wine Month campaign will celebrate Oregon winemakers who celebrate the earth – those who have a particular dedication to environmental stewardship, to growing grapes that best express the soils and to preserving the land for future generations of winegrape farmers. With 45% of Oregon vineyards certified sustainable and many more farming this way, Oregon has more certified sustainable acres than any other winegrowing region in the U.S.

Oregon Wine

We don’t mean to brag, but our extensive Oregon Wine list and our commitment to celebrating and promoting local wineries have been recognized by organizations like Wine SpectatorOregon Wine Press, and The Oregon Wine Board to name a few.

Be sure to join us in The Grand Hotel Salem Lobby every second and fourth Wednesday of the month and taste new wines from our featured local winery from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. This is a wonderful opportunity for our guests to enjoy wine from some of the best winemakers in our region. Special food pairings and happy hour options will also be available for purchase during the tasting.

Look for Us at the Historic Deepwood Estate Annual Wine and Jazz Festival June 27, 2015

The Historic Deepwood Estate Annual Wine and Jazz Festival is without question one of Salem’s most elegant affairs; and we are so thrilled to be a part of it once again!

“I love this event and I go every year without fail,” one blogger writes on her site.

The event benefits the Friends of Deepwood, a non-profit organization preserving Historic Deepwood Estate, a Salem Oregon treasure.

Bentley’s Grill will join other local gourmet food vendors offering small plates to party guests to pair with local wine and beer as they stroll through the beautiful gardens of Salem’s Historic Deepwood Estates mingling with winemakers.

The event features 17 wineries and two stages of live entertainment by Island Jazz Quintet and one of Portland’s premier Afro-Cuban Jazz Bands, Picante.

We will of course be serving up our customer’s favorite, Dungeness Crab Cakes. Our crab cakes consistently receive praise from our guests both in person and online. “They were mostly crab and didn’t have a lot of filler. They were perfectly crisp on the outside without being burnt, but warm all the way through,”writes one Yelp user. “…gotta try the crab cakes,” says another.

Best Crab Cakes in Salem
