Earlier this week, my work took all of our sales team out to dinner at Noble Rot, in Portland, to celebrate our Quarter 1 sales. It was amazing dinner with beautiful wines to boot! Our winemaker, Josh Bergstrom, and his wife, Caroline, are always so gracious to share with us spectacular wines from their personal cellar.
Noble Rot has amazing views of the city and is a nice relaxed vibe for a nice dinner or casual drink. They have an awesome wine list and a couple of fun wine flights.
Take note of the beautiful views in the background. That is Noble Rot's glass atrium and you can sit in there!
Some beautiful red and white Burgundy compliments of Josh Bergstrom! Unfortunately, I did not get bottle shots of the other wines that we had, but we had vintage grower Champagne, Bordeaux, and two Barolos. Both Borolos were very good, however one was a real treat!
Noble Rot's house made ricotta and tomato chutney was a real hit at the table. It is meant to be spread on baguette, but I however, am still on the gluten free diet. :-( I will say it was just as delicious!
Some delicious looking onion rings I couldn't have. :-(
Most of the appetizers I wasn't able to eat because of the presence of gluten, so I ordered this grilled leg of pork with mango and radish salsa and mixed greens. It was quite yummy!
I had the duck breast with rhubarb syrup, quinoa and snap peas. It was delicious and it kind of reminded me of a traditional Chinese dish!
(Sorry about the quality, but entrees were much later in the evening and there was no light.)
For dessert, I had the flourless chocolate cake and chocolate mousse accompanied by a glass of Sauternes.
Dinner was a real treat and it was nice to visit with some of my colleagues over dinner, outside of work. Thank you so much Bergstrom family for an unbelievable treat and Noble Rot for hosting our dinner!
