Beautiful Summer Wines to Chill: Pinot Wines from Oregon's Famed Willamette Valley
Presented by Todd Martin of Van Duzer Vineyards
It’s the perfect weather now, to “chill” with these fabulous warmer weather Pinots from the Willamette Valley! The Willamette Valley was named Wine Region of the Year in 2016, and it's absolutely well-deserved!
Pinot is the 10th most planted grape varietal in the world and you may or may not realize that every Pinot wine doesn’t look like a Pinot Noir, even though they all come from the same root stock and are identical in DNA. In the Willamette Valley in Oregon, over 90% of the grapes grown are Pinot grapes It’s a thin-skinned grape that thrives beautifully there, and if you love Pinot wines, this is absolutely one of the regions to look for on a label. We will be tasting five amazing Oregon, Willamette Valley Pinots on this fun Thursday night. Picture yourself dining alfresco with some of these beauties as they are very versatile and will pair well with many foods!
We will be tasting:
- Van Duzer Pinot Noir Rosé
- Van Duzer Estate Pinot Gris
- Smith and Perry Pinot Noir
- Van Duzuer Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
