Over the last forty years Oregon has become one of the premier wine growing states. Winemakers from all over the world have flocked here to try their hand at Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley’s unique soils. While Pinot Noir and the Willamette Valley are still the epicenter of Oregonian wine, other regions and grapes are also enjoying marked success. In this two hour tasting seminar, Pamela Busch will lead you through the gamut of Oregonian wine and taste a number of reds and whites from different parts of the state.
