Discover Pinot Noir Seminar
Discover the World of Pinot Noir!
Join our Winemaker Kate Payne-Brown and Wine Author Joseph V. Micallef for Discover Pinot Noir, an all day seminar (9:30am-5:30pm), on May 6th.
Taste: Sample five flights of six wines each (30 total) that explore Pinot Noir from around the world, sparkling Pinot Noir's, the style of Oregon’s six AVA's, the effects of different wine making 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 Oregon’s AVA’s, how the winemaker decides to craft each vintage, and how Pinot Noir changes as it ages and matures.
Smell: Learn how to identify and deconstruct the primary, secondary and tertiary aroma profiles of Pinot Noir. We will use a unique, custom designed, 24 aroma Pinot Noir kit.
See: The wine making process up close with a winery tour and time-permitting barrel tasting hosted by our winemakers Melissa Burr and Kate Payne-Brown.
Price: $450/person or $750/couple (includes custom designed Pinot Noir aroma kit, catered lunch, guided tasting of 30 wines, lectures, and closing wine social). Space is very limited.
