Neil Ellis Tasting from South Africa **SOLD OUT**

**THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT**

We are always excited when winemakers come to the shop, and even more when they travel from South Africa to share their stories with us.

Please help us welcome Neil Ellis a South African icon and taste his wines during a seated tasting:

In 1986 Neil Ellis took a calculated leap of faith into the wine negociant arena, buying and vinifying grapes from selected vineyards and marketing these hand-reared wines under his own label. Mindful that exceptional terroir and assiduous vineyard cultivation form the bedrock of great wine, Neil forged long-term supply partnerships with top grape-growers in premium areas.

Today the same philosophy–sourcing superior grapes from low-yielding, hand-selected vineyard lots in the Cape’s top terroirs–remains the mainstay of the Neil Ellis wines. In the very year Neil Ellis set out as a negociant, his future partner Hans Peter Schroder purchased the Stellenbosch wine estate, Oude Nektar, in the spectacular, viticulturally-ideal Jonkershoek Valley. This coincidence gained fresh resonance some years later when Neil and Hans finally met. Neil, recipient of many accolades since flying solo, had outgrown his leased cellar; Hans, in search of a like-minded partner for a quality-focused winery, had extensive cellar facilities (and, moreover, prime-quality grapes).  From this synergy emerged a unique joint venture: Neil Ellis Wines.

An Evening with Josh Bergstrom of Bergstrom Wines

Join us for an evening with Josh Bergström, owner and winemaker of Bergstrom Wines!
Bergstrom is widely regarded by critics, sommeliers and wine lovers alike as one of the finest wineries in the Willamette Valley. Opening a bottle of Bergstrom Pinot Noir is an event and an experience.  Don’t miss the opportunity to taste these exceptional wines with the man behind them–winemaker Josh Bergström!
When John and Karen Bergström began Bergström Wines, they wanted to start a business that would become a legacy for their children and pay tribute to John’s agricultural Swedish upbringing. With these dreams in mind, the couple moved from Portland to Dundee, where they planted the Bergström Vineyard on a gentle, 13-acre, south-facing slope overlooking the wide expanses of the Willamette Valley. In 1999, Josh Bergström, the fourth of five children, returned home to Dundee from a postgraduate program in Viticulture and Enology in the Burgundy region of France. With him, he brought his fiancée Caroline, and the two were married that fall in the Bergström Vineyard. Bergström Wines was also born that fall as the young couple harvested their first vintage of Pinot Noir from high-quality fruit purchased at a neighboring winery. Currently, Josh is general manager, winemaker and vineyard manager at Bergström Wines, and Caroline manages the sales team.
Bergström Wines consists of five estate vineyards totaling 84 acres that span across four of the Willamette Valley’s best appellations: The Bergström Vineyard, Silice Vineyard, Winery Block, Gregory Ranch and Le Pré du Col. Each estate vineyard is farmed without the use of harsh chemicals, systemic or fertilizers, and the winery produces approximately 10,000 cases of ultra-premium and extremely sought-after wine each year, including two Chardonnays and nine different Pinot Noirs.
Please help us welcome Josh Bergstrom to Perrine’s!

Banshee Wines Tasting

The Banshee Wines story began in 2009 when, on a whim, 3 friends in the wine business decided to buy and bottle 8 “closeout” barrels of top-quality Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir from a famous winery that couldn’t sell high end Pinot in the midst of the recession.  Their original ambition didn’t go far beyond selling a few cases to their friends and family and keeping what was leftover for themselves. But to the friends’ surprise, they sold all their wine in 5 weeks.  Banshee Wines was born.
At the start, Banshee didn’t have the enormous capital necessary for vineyards, barrels, and a winery.  So the team started small, using their connections with vineyard managers and wineries to select and purchase grapes from the finest sites in Sonoma and Napa. Because they didn’t need to pay sky-high rents for vineyard land and winemaking facilities, they were able to sell amazing wine while keeping prices well below average. Word spread, and Banshee now has a well-deserved reputation for producing high quality wines that sell for a song.

 

 
Perrine’s has been proud to sell Banshee wines since we opened!
