Siren Song Winery and Restaurant is excited to announce the  addition of Executive Chef Matthew Mohler; who will oversee culinary operations, menu  development, and execution for the property’s onsite restaurant and winery. With more than 26  years of experience in the industry, Mohler brings a continued commitment to creating sharable  cuisine featuring fresh, local ingredients. The restaurant is operated and managed by Columbia Hospitality.

“We are delighted to welcome Chef Matthew to the Siren Song culinary team," said Siren Song co-owner, Holly Brown. "His creative talent and global experience as a chef connects beautifully with Siren Song’s European-inspired menu”, Brown added. “His artisan craftsmanship will add unique and exciting dishes, as well as food and wine pairing programs for our guests and wine club members”, Brown concluded. Mohler grew up in a small Indiana farming community and was inspired by his family’s love of cooking and the farm-to-table culture they embraced. At 17 years old, Mohler got his first taste of the food and beverage industry in the prep kitchen at the local country club, igniting his passion for crafting locally sourced food. Mohler earned a culinary degree from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and a diploma from the International Sommelier Guild.

Working under acclaimed Chef Yannick Cam at Le Paradou in Washington, D.C., Mohler developed an appreciation for the subtle tastes that make a dish stand out as well as the impact of artful presentation. He also served as sommelier and dining manager at the high-powered Chevy Chase Club, where he developed the club’s extensive wine list featuring many local, boutique and exclusive winemakers. Mohler served as Chef de Cuisine at the Hyatt Regency Sochi in Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympics and spearheaded the opening of Formula One Circuit.

Upon moving back to the States, Mohler served as the Executive Chef of the only Relias Chateaux property in Florida. Mohler stated, “I am thrilled and honored to be leading the culinary vision at Siren Song, crafting world-renowned recipes that impress, inspire, and bring people together in the heart of Lake Chelan.” Siren Song offers a variety of European-style menu items, artisan pizzas, food and wine pairings, and hand-crafted desserts to enjoy along with wine tasting. All made in-house, from scratch daily.
