2018 Capstone Saturday Wine Seminar: An Insider’s Guide to Wine Collecting with David Adelsheim and special guest Joey Harrington.

Our final Saturday Seminar of the 2018 Season will be our most exciting tasting and conversation of the year!  

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Joey Harrington is not only a former NFL quarterback and philanthropist, he’s also an avid wine collector and supporter of the Oregon wine industry. We are thrilled to team up with Joey along with our founder, David Adelsheim, and wine educator, Sam Schmitt, CS, CWE, to discuss the strategies, opportunities, and occasional pitfalls of wine collecting.

This seminar will feature a rare vertical tasting of our flagship Quarter Mile Lane Single Vineyard Estate Pinot noir from the celebrated 2008, 2012, and 2016 vintages as well as some special wines personally selected by Joey Harrington exclusively for this seminar.

In this unique wine tasting seminar Sam, David, and Joey will be discussing the following wine collecting topics:

· Understanding Wine Collecting – How to get started and what is important vs. nice-to-have for a beginner

· Understanding Bottle Aging & Ageability – How wines develop in the bottle, how bottle size matters, and how wine making approach, vintages and regions matter

· Strategies for Building a Wine Collection – Developing a collection theme or focus, understanding “futures”, and managing very large collections

· Wine Collecting Pitfalls – Understanding the importance of provenance, the risks and rewards of buying collections and buying at auctions

· Q&A – Sam, David, and Joey will answer your questions and offer advice from their unique experiences
