Pinot Noirs

From Oregon & California

Saturday, February 24th

Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar



There’s an old saying in the wine industry: “Cabernet Sauvignon is made in the winery but Pinot Noir is made in the vineyard.”  What this means is that wine makers can wrestle a mediocre crop of Cabernet grapes into a decent wine, not so Pinot Noir.  With Pinot you must start with good grapes.  This is one of the reasons Pinot Noir is referred to as The Heartbreak Grape.


California has a reputation for fuller bodied, fruit driven, masculine style Pinot Noirs, Oregon’s reputation is for lean, Burgundian, terroir driven, feminine style Pinots.


Come compare and see for yourself.



Price is $20.  Please call or see the front desk to place reservations.  802 253-5742.  Doors open @ 4:00.  I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed.  People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
