Immerse Yourself in an Exploration of Artisan Food and Drink
Newberg, Ore. (January 23, 2013) – On three Sundays in February, Lynn and Ron Penner-Ash invite you to explore artisan crafts that—like wine—depend on nuance, regional variety and an expertise in process. Learn about the subtleties and variations of coffee, salt, and tea from local artisan masters Paul Allen and Pete Miller of Caravan Coffee, Mark Bitterman of The Meadow, and Steve Smith of Steven Smith Teamaker. Then enjoy a tasting of Penner-Ash wines at the end of each seminar.
