2014 Yamhill Carlton AVA Spring Tasting

North of McMinnville, Oregon, in the Northern Willamette Valley, the land slowly rises to the hamlets of Carlton and Yamhill. Low ridges surround the two communities in a horseshoe shape. The free-flowing North Yamhill River courses through the center of a lush patchwork quilt of nurseries, grain fields and orchards. The neatly combed benchlands and hillsides of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, an AVA established in 2004, are home to some of the finest Pinot Noir vineyards in the world. 

Join us April 26 at Anne Amie Vineyards to taste wines from 25+ AVA wineries. We decided that last year was a bit too crowded so we are cutting off attendance at 550 guests this year.
