We're traveling to the Pacific Northwest this month. It's all about Oregon.


Oregon wines are renowned for their distinct characteristics, shaped by the state's unique climate, geography, and winemaking practices.

The cool climate contributes to longer growing seasons and slower grape ripening. This results in wines with bright acidity and a balance between fruit flavors and acidity. 

Specifically, Oregon Pinot Noirs are known for their elegance, complexity, and vibrant red fruit flavors. The diverse soils and microclimates provide an ideal environment for growing high-quality Pinot Noir grapes.

Winemakers often highlight the influence of terroir in their wines, showcasing the impact of specific soil types on grape expression is the flagship grape variety of Oregon and holds a special place in the state's wine industry.


Cool, right? It's another fun evening of wine tasting and light bites hosted in Chef Candace's home.
