IN PERSON: Join us on a journey through Oregon, Washington and California as we explore some of the most famous wine regions in our country. Each week, we will taste four wines from these states and discuss foods that pair well with each. We will get to know each region through an examination of the historical events that have impacted its wine production, how its climate affects the grapes, the styles of wine most common to the region and the varieties that are most frequently produced in the region. If you love West Coast wine and want to deepen your knowledge, this is a great way to do it. Please join us! | Lecture + Q&A.
