December 20th Virtual Wine Tasting Featuring Oregon Pinot Noir

December 20, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm


by Marty Cook

It has crossed my mind of late as to whether or not Lewis and Clark ever considered the Northwest Territories as an ideal place to grow grapes. They were sent on their expedition by Thomas Jefferson, who was an avid oenophile and who tried to grow grapes in his native Virginia. Alas, Jefferson would have been delighted by many of the fabulous wines that now emanate from Washington and Oregon! And, we are delighted to bring you a sampling of some of those wines on Sunday, December 20th at 3:30 p.m. when we reconvene for another in our ongoing series of Virtual Wine Tastings!

Please consider joining us for this event. We will explore the history, geography, geology, and viticultural aspects of two of Oregon’s sub-Appellations as we taste our way to blissful appreciation of three incredible representative Pinot Noir from those areas. One of the collectively stunning features about these three wines is their price to quality relationship, i.e., they represent some of the greatest value that you will ever find for Oregon Pinot Noir of this ilk. Superior quality at a tremendous price! And, the stars have aligned such that all three of these wines are currently available in Pennsylvania Fine Wine & Good Spirits shops!

Grab one, two, or all three of these great wines in advance of our Virtual Wine Tasting and then join co-host Joe Via and myself to appreciate these fine wines! We will toast to Lewis and Clark, and to the holiday season, and to each other! Woven into this event will be discussion about wine and food pairing for your holiday festivities. And, since it is the season for giving, we will also have door prizes!

The three wines that we will feature are below. Call ahead to the nearest premium selection Fine Wine & Good Spirits store and verify that they have all three Pinot Noir offerings.
