Taste Wines From Mountain Regions

Many of our tastings focus on a region or country, this year we want to change things up and showcase wines that are grown in similar regions across the world. This is going to be fun! 

Our first tasting of the series will focus on wines made from grapes grown in mountainous regions.

The benefits and allure of mountain or high altitude wines:
There is no question that altitude, steepness, angle of slope and paucity of soil (often just thin layers of topsoil on solid rock forcing vines to go deep for water) all have an influence on the quality of the grapes. It is proven that colours of red wines are deeper and more sustained when they are from grapes grown at high altitudes. That elusive word ‘minerality’ that we wine tasters love to talk about crops up again and again from wines grown in mountain areas. The altitude means that often there is good diurnal temperature difference during the growing season leading to high acidity, providing balance and ageing ability.

$25 per person

**Tasting fee refunded with purchase of 6 wines from the tasting.

Includes 8 wines with cheeses & charcuterie:
2009 Majolini Franciacorta, Lombardy, Italy $37.99

Meet the Winemaker from Resonance Winery: Guillaume Large

Join us as we Welcome French Winemaker: Guillaume Large from Resonance Winery.

Résonance is Maison Louis Jadot’s first wine project outside of Burgundy, France, since our founding in 1859.  This Pinot Noir is our debut release from the beautiful, tree-lined Résonance Vineyard, in the Yamhill-Carlton wine region.  From un-grafted vines first planted in 1981, this single vineyard bottling shows the elegance and complexity Oregon Pinot Noirs are famous for.

Guillaume Large was born in the heart of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation in 1982. After first studying public law, Guillaume decided to turn his passion into his profession. Growing up, his grandfather, who was a grower, shared with him his passion for vineyards and wine. He graduated with an Oenologist’s National Diploma of the Jules Guyot Institute of Dijon, and joined Maison Joseph Drouhin, in Beaune, before joining the Chateau de Vinzelles in Maconnais in 2009.

In 2011, Guillaume joined Maison Louis Jadot and became the Assistant Technical Director under Frederic Barnier. In August 2017, he moved to Oregon and joined Résonance as Winemaker, working under the advisement of Jacques Lardière.

Together we will be tasting 4 Wines + Cheeses

Burgundy Wine Tasting - Limited seated

We couldn’t be more excited to start the year  with a Burgundy tasting!

We are excited to welcome Kim Gagné to lead the tasting. Kim founded Journeys in Wine (her Wine Tour Company) in 1999, shepherding small groups of wine enthusiasts through the wine regions of France, sharing with her clients a wealth of experience and knowledge as well as a passion for wine and its rich heritage.

It was her work in the California wine trade in the late 1980’s that enticed Kim to travel to France to learn its language and wines. A year’s immersion in Burgundy ended up as an extended stay of 10 years. During that time, she ran a luxury biking and hiking tour company and exported wines to the United States.

We will taste 7 white & red wines from Burgundy paired with cheese and charcuterie.
