Opening May 2017
The Clubhouse at Domaine Serene
The Clubhouse at Domaine Serene is a true testament and a statement to the quality of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay being produced in the unique terroir of the Dundee Hills. The Clubhouse is a gift to our cherished members, the wine community, and was conceived to celebrate the burgeoning Evenstad Family’s wine legacy for future generations to come.
Founders and owners Grace and Ken Evenstad’s vision for the clubhouse draws inspiration from Château de la Crée, their 15th-century estate in Santenay, Burgundy – which they purchased in 2015. It’s thoughtful design, architecture and old-world construction techniques offer future generations of wine lovers the same sense of place and history found in the most significant and storied regions of Burgundy.
“We have taken a very old-world approach in building the new Clubhouse. We want our children’s, children to experience the same sense of history that we feel when we visit Burgundy, right here in the Dundee Hills,” said Grace Evenstad. “Our hope is that this new and unique center for hospitality will help generations of wine lovers experience the Willamette Valley, and the unique terroir of the Dundee Hills, in all of its splendor.”
The Clubhouse at Domaine Serene features a spectacular grand room for public wine tasting, a members-only lounge and a dedicated food and wine pairing lounge all wrapped by a large patio that frames sweeping views of the Valley and the Coast Range. Underground, guests will find a one of a kind cave system modeled after the one found at the Evenstad’s 15th-century Burgundian property, Château de la Crée. Additionally, the chef-inspired commercial kitchen will house a top-tier executive chef, a sous chef, and seasonal cooks with the capacity to host large wine dinners.
The historic old-world craftsmanship of the building – artisans and specialists representing 86 companies worked on this generational project – reflects the authenticity of the wine-making philosophy of Domaine Serene. There is an appreciation for the use of quality materials lasting long beyond a lifetime. Many of the building techniques used have been around for generations. The building and design teams were careful to use the same approach to quality craftsmanship and effort that the Evenstads have put into their award-winning winemaking for decades.
The Clubhouse will be a sanctuary for Domaine Serene’s club members and visitors from both near and far, and lends credence to why the Willamette Valley was recently named wine region of the year by Wine Enthusiast.
