I Love Gamay, Portland’s annual wine festival celebrating our favorite varietal, is going virtual this year!
The relationship between soils and grape growing is one of the most complex and perplexing conversations in winemaking. The geologic features of where a grape is grown clearly influences characteristics of the wine. Our three e-tasting hosts this week will discuss soil geology from three different Oregon soil types and its outsized role within the notion of terroir influence on wines.
Jerry Sass, Sass Wines (Willamette Valley AVA)
Thomas Houseman, Anne Amie Vineyards (Chehalem Mountains AVA)
Trevor Hertrich, Idiot’s Grace (Columbia Gorge AVA)
Barbara Gross, Cooper Mountain Vineyards (Chehalem Mountains AVA)
It’s free to tune into each session and we highly recommend that you purchase the wines that will be discussed so you can follow along and discuss with the winemakers.
This is just one of three Virtual I Love Gamay sessions, visit www.ilovegamay.com/virtual-gamay to learn more!
