Get ready… the Wine festival is back!
We are thrilled to once again be a part of this amazing wine fest focused on one of our very favorite varieties, the most delicious and oh so versatile Gamay grape!
Many of you already know, but for those who don’t, Kate and Tom began their winemaking careers in the Beaujolais and Loire regions, focused on (guess what?!) that’s right, lots and lots of Gamay!
When they returned to the U.S. and started Division Winemaking Co., they were destined to make and promote Gamay from the West Coast…
So here they are today, making six Division and Division-Villages Gamay based wines – plus a Gamay only Wine Club! Not to mention, that as of last harvest, the Gamay grape represents over 40% of Division’s total wine production. If that’s not a commitment to this special grape, we are not sure what is!
Well, actually, we’ll tell you what is: the I Love Gamay Festival, and as co-founders Tom and Kate are all so excited to bring Portland this festival for a second year and to help make this another great year for Gamay in Oregon and beyond!
There’s lots of events and happenings around town for the I Love Gamay wine fest week and we encourage you to find and join as many of them as you can, to share in the excitement, learn about, and of course, taste and drink so many fantastic versions of Gamay that your head will be spinning!
Follow along on Instagram @i.love.gamay to find out more info on events popping up all over PDX!
We can’t wait to see you in just over a week!
