A Chez Panisse alum, MacLarty’s intimate spin on a supper club is located next door to his Mumbai street food inspired restaurant Bollywood Theater on SE Division, and features farm-driven, seasonal Indian cooking. At Churchgate Station, MacLarty serves as chef, collaborator and experimenter. The 40-seat Churchgate Station—named for the southernmost train station in Mumbai—opened in fall 2018. 

Winery Partner

Cameron Winery

Dundee, OR

John Paul, the irrepressible owner and winemaker of Cameron, founded the winery in 1984. After working out of a warehouse on the other side of the tracks in McMinnville, we moved to our current location in the hills above Dundee. Here, we planted Clos Electrique, a 4 acre dry-farmed vineyard that included Pinot noir and Chardonnay. Clos Electrique was planted in a traditional Burgundian manner, using many different clones of each varietal. Over the years the vineyard has expanded to 7 acres.  Varietals now also include Nebbiolo and a field blend of white Italian grapes.

 

John Paul came to winemaking from an academic background. After receiving a PhD in Marine Biochemistry, he realized that winemaking offered opportunities to use the right side of his brain and to drink at work.  He therefore jumped academic ship and began working in the wine industry, with stints in Oregon, New Zealand, and California. After working as an assistant winemaker at Carneros Creek Winery in the Napa Valley,  he took the high road north and started Cameron with his wife, Teri Wadsworth, and partners, Bill and Julia Wayne of Abbey Ridge Vineyard, Marc Dochez, and Shawna Archibald. The winery name was inspired by its location in Dundee and was named after the Paul family’s Scottish Clan.

 

Cameron Winery is dedicated to producing high-quality, hand-crafted and sustainably-farmed libations for the people - a small family operation, producing 3,000 to 4,000 cases annually.
