Interest in Willamette Valley wines has skyrocketed in recent years. While Oregon produces just 1% of American wine by volume, it accounts for 20% of Wine Spectator magazines top-rated wines. Most of those are from the Willamette Valley, with its cool-climate Pinot Noir, lean Chardonnay, distinctive Riesling and, now, excellent Gamay.
The Willamette Valley is huge—almost the size of Connecticut. Though it has just three main soil types, the combination of those soils and the mesoclimates resulting from its complex topography give its AVAs unique personalities. This workshop goes into detail on all these elements, plus new AVAs and laws which are pending.
This is the second unit of the Northwest Wine Appellation Specialist program. As part of this workshop, you'll taste 6-8 wines related to the curriculum.
Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the full series if you would like to continue on. Payment plans are available for the full series.
Group discounts are available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
