REX HILL “Book Club” Library Tasting Series

Have you ever longed for more when you reached the end of a great book, or worse, the end of a bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir?  Join us for the REX HILL Book Club where the word “library” takes on a whole new meaning.   More than just a reference point for past years’ growing seasons, wines from our library represent a deep history of award-winning Pinot Noir production.  Each month we’ll introduce a selection of these cherished wines for careful study to the only Book Club in town with no required reading.

This class: Mystery Loves Company—Like every great “Whodunnit?” mystery, wines will trick and delight you when you taste them blind.  No peeking!
