Life at Hiyu is expressed by the following equation:
Culture(1) Soil life + Plants + Animals + People = Culture(2) People experiencing Food and Wine
We live on a farm with plants, animals and all the beneficial creatures that inhabit the soil. From this culture, supported by a network of local growers, we cook food and make wine. We’ve built a place where you can gather at the table and experience life on our farm.
Tastings and Meals
Wine Tavern: Four wines for $35 or Six wines for $50

Please dress appropriately for inclement weather and consider proper footwear for potential muddy fields.
Gatherings and Dinners
Several times a month we host a collaboative dinner party or informal gathering. The gatherings are built around a rustic one plate meal and the release of new wines while the collaborative dinners tend to be more elaborate in their presentation. These events are intended to be a way for friends of the farm to come together.
Mushrooms and Microbes $125/person
Sunday, July 21st, 2019 6 PM
This supper is focused on the path connecting fungal and microbial life in the soil to our work in the kitchen, cellar and from there to its transformation as cultural life at the table. We’re inviting a group of farmers, viticulturists, winemakers and mycologists to host a discussion of these networks during an informal tasting prior to the meal. Jason will be serving mushrooms we preserved from the late spring foraging season in the High Cascades and other dishes enhanced by fermentation based food from our Garden.
Eat and Drink Like a Scythian $185/person
Saturday, July 27th, 2019 6 PM
We’re throwing a party on Orcas island! The event is a celebration, discussion and exploration of nomadic food, wine and music. The Scythians were tribes of nomadic warrior-archers living during the time of Herodotus. Over time they became a conceptual symbol for nomadism, inspiring philosophers like Deleuze and Guattari and our own understanding of food and wine. By nomadic, we mean wine that isn’t settled, territorialized or tied down by the conventions or boundaries of a place. Instead, it is set free and made borderless by the creative spirit of wandering and exploration. Mount Eerie will be playing music, Jay Blackinton and friends will be cooking dinner with food sourced on the island and Abe Schoener, Rajat Parr, Nate Ready and Christina Rasmussen will be pouring an extraordinary group of wines that express the deterritorialized spirit of the Scythians.
The event is at Hogstone Wood Oven on Orcas Island. It will run from 6pm until late into the night.
