taste. learn. celebrate. — Saturday, May 6 — an educational and tasting event about wine and grape growing, presented by Willamette Valley winemakers as they kick off Oregon Wine Month
The Cascade Foothills Winegrowers are proud to present the second annual taste. learn. celebrate!, a public tasting event and wine making EXPO that showcases the family-grown, cool-climate wines of the Willamette Valley’s east side.
The grand tasting takes place on Saturday, May 6 from 12–5 pm at the beautiful Festhalle in Mount Angel, Oregon. Tickets are available for $15 per person from cascadefoothillswines.com and include ten wine tastes and an afternoon of music and wine education. Additional tastes and food will be available.
Over 60 wines will be poured, ranging from Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris to more unusual varieties and wine blends.
Wine lovers can mingle with the winemakers, learn about the process of making wine in the Cascade Foothills, and enjoy hard-to-find-wines. Tractors, bottling lines, corkers and labelers will be on display, along with fun, “hands on” activities as we show how wine goes from grape to glass.
And the “celebrate” aspect? It’s Oregon Wine Month… a statewide celebration of all things wine. “What a great opportunity to come to an event where the actual winemaker is there to pour you his wines and show you how wine is made,” said owner/winemaker at Whiskey Hill Winery.
