join Angelo on Saturday, June 9 for an intriguing and interesting tour of wine
regions in the Willamette Valley in
Western Oregon, the Puget Sound area
of Western Washington, and the Okanogan
Highlands, Fraser Valley, and Vancouver Island areas of British Columbia.
The terroir and landscape and temperature of
these regions where grapes are grown make a great difference on how the grapes
ripens. We will see that nature and man

British Columbia. We will see that the geologic
history of these regions again influenced the wines of the Willamette Valley
and also the Puget sound, but most interesting are the influence of the wine
laws created in Canada to give the customer a better wine through the VQA laws

Of note are the difference in terroir and
temperatures in the vineyards and the quality of the wine created. We will
taste Pinot Noirs from Oregon and also some wines from Puget Sound and Canada. For this reason this seminar is extremely
