NW Holiday Wine Events
This last weekend I participated in the Willamette Valley’s 29th annual Wine Country Thanksgiving Weekend. A post-harvest event where over 160 wineries opened their doors for special, festive, holiday wine tastings.
In my pursuit of understanding Pinot Noir this was an event not to miss. And it delivered with the opportunity to go to some of the smaller boutique wineries that are not always open to the public. Some of these wineries were still under construction, some more established and some of the wineries due to the late harvest were still in “crush” mode. But all delivered that very unique experience of tasting amazing wine, meeting the winemaker and family at some places and illuminating why going out to local winery events is worth the trip.
