Spire Collection Educational Seminar & Wine Dinner, October 19, 2018

Please join us for lively evening of wines hosted by Riley Pabst from Jackson Family Wines. We will focus the evening on a special group of wines from their Spire Collection. These wines express the unparalleled terroir from some of the finest vineyards around the world. This is a truly impressive portfolio featuring wines from Oregon to Bordeaux, California to Tuscany. The wineries in the collection are committed to honoring tradition in wine making, integrity in the vineyards and, ultimately, quality in the glass. This evening we’ll showcase 5 outstanding wines from two renown Oregon wineries – Gran Moraine and Zena Crown. Taste these exquisite Burgundian- style crafted wines produced in tee Pacific Northwest. Chef will prepare a fall harvest meal with these wines.  The dinner features a chardonnay, pinot noir and rose from Gran Moraine and 2 single vineyard pinot noirs from Zena Crown.

We will start off the evening will a seminar focusing on the Willamette Valley, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest wine industry. We’ll taste a flight of Pinot Noirs from the acclaimed Zena Crown Vineyard that sources grapes from three different historic vineyards from Eola-Amity Hills – Conifer, Sum and Slope. Each vineyard has a different type of soil and we’ll see first hand how the vineyard and terroir effect the wine in the hands of the same winemaker. We will also taste an old world style chardonnay produced by Gran Moraine.
