When Tad Seestedt started Ransom Spirits outside Sheridan, Oregon in 1997, he called his enterprise Ransom to represent the debt he incurred to start the business, which he did with "a fistful of credit cards." Today, Ransom makes fine, small-batch wines, liqueurs, grain-based spirits and even dry vermouth. 

On Monday, August 18th, Finca restaurant will host a unique dinner featuring Ransom Wine & Spirits. This looks to be a really good one. The tentative menu includes: 

Compressed melon with cucumber, verbena curd, smoked honey, almond, espelette + Ransom Old Tom Gin, Ransom Vermouth

Tomato salad with bacon aioli, basil, avocado, grilled squash, pea blossoms, nasturtium + Ransom 2012 Pinot Gris, Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon

Amberjack crudo with lemon verbena, apricot vinegar, vanilla beets, sea beans + Ransom 2012 Riesling, Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon

Boar Empanadas with Sarsaparilla glaze, smoked cherry, corn relish + Ransom 2012 Pinot Noir, Oregon

Peaches & Cream with whiskey cream, oatmeal streusel, local peach purée + Ransom Grappa, Henry DuYore’s Whiskey

The cost is $35 per person for food and $35 for the optional beverage pairings, tax and gratuity not included.
