Join us at the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg for this Brooks University Master Class with special guest Patrick Comiskey from Wine and Spirits Magazine. This master class will cover two different topics and feature content to suit all palates:
How Are Wines Scored? Patrick is the wine critic for Oregon, and other regions, for Wine and Spirits Magazine. Patrick will take us behind the scenes of the wine reviewing process, including how wines are scored and how the Top 100 Wineries of the Year are selected.
How is Climate Change Affecting Wine? Let’s dive into 6 vintages of Pinot Noir and Riesling to gain an understanding of how temperatures impact the resulting wines. We will geek out with data too! Patrick will share other examples of climate change and wines from other regions.
There will be food and wine available. Food provided by Crown Paella.
Patrick will be signing copies of his award winning book American Rhône (sold separately).
