For many years, wine connoisseurs have thought of South America as a great place to find bargains – wines that are inexpensive, yet quaffable, and are immediately identifiable in their varietal character.  And while that is true across much of South America’s production (and numerous other countries), this notion doesn’t capture the highs, nor the soul, of what is currently being produced there.

In both Chile and Argentina, vintners are striking out in new directions, exploring every facet of quality that they can – high-altitude Malbec, indigenous Pais grapes, new fermentation methods, different grape varieties in whites and reds, and pushing for the absolute best of the best.

At this tasting we take a look at this “New World” wine producer made new yet again.

By founding a Pinot vineyard in Willamette Valley in 1966, David “Papa Pinot” Lett was making a statement for the rest of the world to hear – that this valley was an ideal place for a cool-climate grape, capable of producing wines with finesse, longevity, and elegance.

A few pioneers followed David’s example and today, Wilamette’s Pinot production is booming.  This tasting explores the valley’s history, its five subzones and how they affect the finished wines, and how winemaking styles interrelate with all of these factors.

Rosé – no longer your grandmother’s blush wine. Dry rose is serious stuff: it drinks like a red wine but you chill it like a white.  Is it the ultimate patio pounder?  The best boat wine?  Is it the gateway to delicious hedonism for those of us who usually drink only red?  Yes, it is all of these things and so much more.

Yes, it’s crazy to think about warm weather and sunshine in these crazy, snowy days of April.  But as sure as tax season just got done with, Rosé season will begin.  And along with it, summer.  At this festival we will be exploring over 40 different wines – many of them Rosé, but also lots of white wines ranging from crisp and aromatic to dry and full-bodied.  Finally, there are summer reds – juicy, vibrant and exciting, also perfect for the patio.

Whatever your tastes, here is a festival guaranteed to not only bring on summer, but see you drinking well the whole way through!
