It's more than a little romantic, we admit: a long picnic table set up in a pastoral setting, wine glasses clinking and (hopefully good-lookin') strangers bonding over dinner, alfresco.

There's a reason that Field & Vine's summer farm dinner series stretches all the way into winter. It's fun to dine outside, close to the source of your salad and wine. And with Field & Vine, there will be wine: most of the weekly dinners take place within an actual vineyard. (Each will set you back about $100—that covers  6–7 courses, beverages, tax, and gratuity.)

The sixth annual dinner series kicked off May 12, and runs to December 11, and each event pairs a local winemaker, cider maker, brewer, or distiller with a high-quality food purveyor. Example: a dinner at award-winning Methven Family Wines in the Eola-Amity Hills highlights Briar Rose Creamery. Meanwhile, a dinner with Campbell Lane Winery at Marquam Hill Ranch offers the chance to sip pinot gris and meet the onsite alpacas.

Interested? Now's your chance to try out the series for free. Field & Vine is giving away two tickets to its July 21 farm dinner with Portland Creamery and Alexeli Vineyard and Winery. This event will include a wine tasting, a scenic walk through the vineyard, picture-perfect views of Dobbes Lake, and a tasting of Portland Creamery’s artisan goat cheese before the multicourse dinner commences.
