Riedel Glass Seminar & Oregon Olive Mill Olive Oil Tasting

What better way to spend your day than learning why your glasses are so important to the wine you love and how freshly pressed estate-milled extra virgin olive oil can change your life!

The afternoon will start out with an educational Riedel Glass Seminar featuring four Riedel Glasses, Vinum XL set which includes Montrachet, Riesling Grand Cru, Oregon Pinot Noir, Cabernet, expertly paired with Durant Vineyards & Owen Roe wines! Riedel Region Territory Manager, Mari Beth Baumberger, will take you through the history of Riedel, explain the importance of glassware, and BLOW YOUR MIND with the fact that, “Glasses really do make a difference to the wine you drink!” After the class, each participant will take home with them the set of glasses they tasted from, so you will always have the correct glass!

After a short break of delicious small bites, the room will be transformed into all things EVOO. Oregon Olive Mill Ambassador, Libby Clow, will lead the class through an expertly tailored olive oil tasting! Four Oregon Olive Mill estate-milled extra virgin olive oils will be described, tasted alone and then savored with food. Much like wine and food pairings, olive oil can really enhance the flavors of your food.

All attendees will have the opportunity to purchase all the wines and olive oils tasted after the event. A special Durant/Owen Roe mixed wine case discount will be available. Additional Riedel Vinum XL sets will also be for sale. 

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Call 503.864.2000 ext. 2, email jodi@redridgefarms.com or visit our Eventbrite site.

High Tea & Tasting Wine Class at REX HILL

There is nothing quite like the ceremony of traditional English High Tea. All of the pastries, muffins, sweets, and crumpets, however, are blinding the simple, overlooked lesson that lies before you. We will have a bit of a tea party first, and then move on to the tea-as-allegory wine tasting portion where you will be amazed at what you learn about yourselves (and wine, of course).
