Educational     Light Appetizers      Tasting (sit down)     Wine    

Oregon’s Willamette Valley is the source of some of America’s most elegant, pure, and complex Pinot Noir.  But there's  more complexity there than most of us know.  What’s the difference between wines from volcanic “Jory” soils and marine sedimentary sites like Bellpine?  How do wines from Eola-Amity differ from those grown in the Chehalem Mountains?  And how can the Dundee Hills and Ribbon Ridge be so close to each other – but give such very different wines?

We’ll tackle those questions and more as we taste through seven Pinot Noirs from up and down the Willamette Valley from winegrowers like Ken Wright, Patricia Green, Brick House, and more.  And, as a bonus, we’ll share tips for planning a visit to Oregon’s Pinot country – something we encourage every true Pinot fan to do!

As always, we’ll have light snacks to nibble with the wines and plenty of great conversation to share. Reserve your seats today online at by emailing us at or calling 703.356.6500.
