Annie and Scott Shull, owners of Raptor Ridge Winery in Oregon, will host a four-course dinner at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, at Duet Restaurant & Jazz, 108 N. Detroit Ave.

Annie has hosted a handful of Tulsa dinners in past years, but Scott seldom has had an opportunity to get away from the winery.

Scott founded the winery in 1995. He and Annie married in 1998, and she joined as a business partner in 2001.

A few years ago, Raptor Ridge, named after the winery’s location in the Chehalem Mountains, was named one of the top three producers of pinot noir in the country by Wine & Spirits magazine.

Raptor Ridge grapes are sourced from select vineyards in the Willamette Valley, plus its own estate, Tuscowallame.

Wines to be served at the Duet dinner include Harbinger Vineyard brut rosé, Dragon pinot gris, Tuscowallame Vineyard Estate pinot noir and Estate Vineyard grüner veltliner.

They will be paired with crêpes salées, fruit poke tostada, mesquite-smoked duck breast and peppered caramel kiwi tart.

Cost is $45 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations: 918-398-7201.
