SATURDAY SEMINAR: DRINK PINK!

 

Understanding Rosé Winemaking and Rosé Wine Styles 

Presented by Elizabeth Clark

Rosé is a fun, easy drinking wine that pairs well with casual get-togethers, hanging out by the pool or beach, and just about any barbecue. But did you know that Rosé may be the original wine style dating back almost 10,000 years? That Rosé wine is often made using a combination of red and white wine making techniques? Or, that European wine laws and New World traditions prohibit making a Rosé by simply adding a little red wine to white wine to make it pink? Not only is Rosé fun, but it’s also surprisingly complex and interesting!

In this wine tasting seminar we will share a glass of our 2018 Rosé of Pinot noir — our first wine release of the 2018 vintage — while we explore the history of Rosé, the various methods to make a Rosé wine and what makes Rosé so easy to drink and pair with summertime foods.

Diversity and Harmony of Chehalem Mountain Pinot noir 

Presented by Michael Cheng

Back in 1971, Adelsheim was the first winery established in what is known today as the Chehalem Mountains AVA. This east-west oriented mountain range provides a great diversity of soils, elevations, and other important vineyard site characteristics that Pinot noir and Chardonnay express so profoundly.

In this tasting seminar we will explore the many facets of the Chehalem Mountains AVA and how its diversity of soils, elevations, and aspect are expressed in our Single Vineyard Pinot Noir wines from our favorite vineyards.

SATURDAY SEMINAR: The Ribbon Ridge AVA

 

A Small AVA Producing Some Big Wines

Presented by Michael Cheng

The Ribbon Ridge AVA is the smallest nested AVA within the Willamette Valley. Situated on the southwest corner of the Chehalem Mountains, Ribbon Ridge is in a class by itself as home to unusually high elevation sedimentary soil vineyard sites — a soil type that is more commonly found at low elevations within the Willamette Valley. This unique combination of elevation and silty sedimentary soil produces distinctive wines unlike any other.

In this tasting seminar we will explore the geology and personality of the Ribbon Ridge AVA, how these features conspire to create a distinctive signature in the AVA’s wines and sample some of our favorite examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from some of the best vineyard sites in Ribbon Ridge.
