THE DIRT ON RIESLING FIELD TRIP
$100/person Only 15 Tickets Available

Why is the Willamette Valley perfectly suited to growing Riesling and what is the fuss over soils all about?  Come dig deep with us, get nerdy about one of our favorite varietals, and taste the proof!

On this fun outing, you will visit two vineyards with different soil types to learn about Riesling’s supreme versatility and what marine sedimentary and volcanic soils bring to the wines, all the while enjoying a glass of Riesling made from each site! Brooks Assistant Winemaker, Claire Jarreau, and Wine Educator, Lauren Williams, will be your guides as you enjoy a day among the vines hearing from local expert viticulturists Bob Bailey and Jessica Cortell.

The tour includes transportation, wines at each stop, lunch prepared by our Executive Chef, Norma Buchholz, some fun surprise wines to taste that we will open just for this day, and a bottle of Riesling from each vineyard we visit to take home!  Please wear comfortable clothing, a hat if it’s sunny (or rain jacket if rainy), and suitable footwear for walking around the vineyards.
