**The Saturday luncheon will feature a different guest chef presenting a variety of small plates accompanied by different Pfeiffer wines, along with Oregon craft beers and spirits. This Fireside Pavilion luncheon option is also part of Experience Two, The Epicurious Gourmand.

 Hosts Robin and Danuta Pfeiffer promise an unforgettable experience, and the passion and attention they devote to every vintage is one reason Pfeiffer Vineyards is recognized as one of the prime pinot noir sites in Oregon.

This limited attendance weekend experience is only available to those who choose Weekend Experience Three, The Gourmand at the Villa on a first-come, first-served basis, and sells out quickly every year.

A Villa Weekend Chef

Justin Woodward, Executive Chef
Castagna, Portland OR

Justin Woodward, Executive Chef of Castagna in Portland ORJustin Woodward enjoys the challenge of evolving cuisine, using ancient and modern techniques to bring out the essential nature of house-grown, foraged and local ingredients.

Lauded by The Oregonian for his “powerfully creative dishes,” Karen Brooks, Portland Monthly food critic and author of The Mighty Gastropolis calls Justin, "The only Portland chef cooking at Michelin-star level.”

Woodward credits his family and his father for his love and appreciation for food. From helping his father in the garden and his grandmother in the kitchen to his early work in San Diego’s best restaurants, he always cooked.
