Join our Associate Winemaker Kate Payne-Brown and Wine Author Joseph V. Micallef on May 6 for Discover Pinot Noir, an interactive all-day seminar with tasting!
Taste: Sample five flights of six wines (30 wines total) that explore Pinot Noir from around the world, styles of Pinot Noir from still to sparkling, differences in the Willamette Valley's six AVAs, the effects of different winemaking techniques, and a flight of historic Stoller Pinot Noir vintages.
Learn: The origins and history of Pinot Noir, how soils, climate and altitude shape the characteristic terroir of Willamette Valley’s AVAs, how the winemaker decides to craft each vintage, and how Pinot Noir changes as it ages and matures.
Smell: Discover how to identify and deconstruct the primary, secondary and tertiary aroma profiles of Pinot Noir using a unique, custom designed, 24 aroma Pinot Noir kit, which you can take home.
See: The winemaking process up close with a winery tour and time-permitting barrel tasting hosted by our Associate Winemakers Kate Payne-Brown.
