Oregon Wine Maker Visits - Next Week

It must be the beautiful weather we have experienced the last couple of days?
Or all the Oregon wine makers are feeling a little stir crazy at the moment.

Whatever the reason, we are happy to have them next week on two different nights.
Wine Maker Visit - Tuesday June 15th 6-7:30PM

Patrick has learned about winemaking while working harvests in Chile, New Zealand, Napa, Burgundy, and of course Oregon. He’s also a graduate from UC Davis where he studied “terroir” while his wife simultaneously studied viticulture.

Wine Maker Visit - Wednesday June 16th 6-7:30PM

Winemaker, Darcy Pendergrass from Amity Vineyards will pour a selection of Pinot, and more.

Amity Vineyards is located in Yamhill County, Oregon just 7 miles from McMinnville. This region has been recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir producing areas in the world-rivaling the best in Burgundy. As one of Oregon's pioneer wineries, Amity Vineyards helped establish the area's reputation for world class Pinot noir as early as 1985, the year Robert Parker "Discovered Oregon," praising Amity Vineyards' 1983 Winemaker's Reserve Pinot noir.

" One of the best Pinot noirs I have ever tasted " - Robert Parker
