The Second Generation Vintners (2GV) Oregon Originals is a Pinot Noir collaboration between the siblings at Elk Cove, Ponzi & Sokol Blosser. Join winemakers Adam Campbell, Luisa Ponzi and Alex Sokol Blosser for an informative wine seminar and tasting to explore the 2GV wine project.
The 2GV Pinot Noir is an exceptional cuvée, reflecting the typicity of a region. This wine was crafted from three second-generation, sibling-run wineries, exercising their expertise in the vineyards and cellar. The wine is crafted from Pommard Clone fruit exchange of 1.5T of 2017 Pinot Noir from each Estate Vineyard site. Each winemaker was tasked with creating three separate wines, that ultimately would become the final blend. The wine was aged for 10 months in French oak and represents three soil types, Laurelwood (Ponzi), Jory (Sokol Blosser) and marine sedimentary (Elk Cove). The seminar features a technical tasting of each of the 9 component wines.
Only 300 cases were bottled, with 150 cases being donated to various charities including Oregon’s ¡Salud! Foundation.
Elk Cove Club Member pricing $50, general admission $70.
