Viticulture and Oenology
Many letters of thanks and praise were written to Phillip DeVito while he served as maître d’hôtel and cellar master for the fine dining and wine program at Salishan Lodge in Gleneden Beach, Oregon. This sampling includes letters from Bob and Harolyn Thompson (Bob was a wine writer for Sunset magazine), Coleman J. Lesser, Dennis P. Rawlinson, Rodney D. Strong of Sonoma Vineyards, and Verner V. Lindgren. DeVito built award-winning wine lists while at Salishan and also impressed customers with his charm and flair.
