A Taste of Wright

Willamette Valley chefs will team up with farmers, wineries, and brewers on August 2, 2009 to present A Taste of Wright, a culinary grazing extravaganza at the Gordon House. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Gordon House is the only residence designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Oregon and the only Wright building in the Pacific Northwest open to the public. The Gordon House Conservancy oversees the continuing restoration and operation of the house as a public museum opened in March 2002. A Taste of Wright is the major annual fundraising event for the Conservancy.
