Thanksgiving Day Weekend
Barrel Tasting and New Releases!
November 25th, 26th, 27th, 2016
12pm – 6pm
ENJOY THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON WINE!
After feasting with family and friends on Thanksgiving, continue celebrating throughout the three-day weekend! Come out to visit the wineries of Southwest Washington and enjoy their 2016 Barrel Tasting and New Releases!
What is a barrel tasting? This is a peak at “wine in process.” Winemakers taste their wines periodically to “check-in”, make decisions about blending, and determine whether a wine is ready for bottling. This one weekend a year, we give you a chance to participate in this process. You may or may not like what you taste, but you will learn something!
Just minutes from Portland, the Southwest Washington wine region is home to nearly two-dozen family-owned, boutique wineries and vineyards. With an average production of only 1000 cases per year, winemakers are still frequently in the tasting room.
Nestled between the North bank of the Columbia River and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, our climate and soil are similar to Burgundy. The region excels at growing traditional European grapes such as Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay, as well as lesser-known varietals like Golubok, Marechal-Foch and Zweigelt-Rebe. Grapes sourced from warmer climates nearby round out the tasting experience. Red, white, rose, sparking and dessert wines offer something for every palate. Come taste, learn and enjoy with us!
Scenic hiking and other activities make it easy to plan an eventful day or a full weekend in this emerging wine region.
A sample of what to expect this weekend:
- 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon: The only Cab grown WEST of the Cascades! Right here in Vancouver.
- 2016 Raspberry Delight: Our perennial sell-out favorite.
- 2016 Pinot Gris
- Vertical tasting of 2014, 2015 and 2016 Pinot Noir grown at English Farm. Get an idea of what the same vineyard produces year to year, and how a wine develops as it’s aging.
