Virtual Tours of AVAs with Raptor Ridge
Mar 27 – Apr 29 all day

Raptor Ridge makes vineyard designated wines from 4 of the Willamette Valley’s nested AVAs.  We focus on one AVA each week over the next month with video interviews, photos and notes about each vineyard that comprises a 3-pack of wine we are selling from each sub-region.

We will cover 4-AVAs over the next month of shut-in time in order to take viewers on a virtual tour of Oregon wine country:  Eola-Amity Hills, Yamhill-Carlton, McMinnville, and the Chehalem Mtns.  We start in the south and work our way homeward to our Estate.

Interviews with each Vineyard Owner & Manager are focused on 3 things:  The Soil, The Micro-climate, and the Culture or Philosophy of how we (together) approach managing the blocks.   We hope to spend 5 to no more than 10 minutes with each Vineyard on a “zoom call” recorded video that gets posted on our website.

Here is some overview material and then a link to the first in the series, with Tim Ramey of Zenith vineyard.

Lingua Franca’s Wine Webinar Wednesday – Session 1: A Profound Sense of Place
Apr 1 @ 4:00 pm
Lingua Franca's Wine Webinar Wednesday - Session 1: A Profound Sense of Place @ Oregon

Join us for Wine Webinar Wednesday! We miss being able to share our favorite subject (wine stuff) with our favorite people (you) while we shelter in place and do our part to keep our community safe. For the next several weeks we will be featuring a variety of wine topics ranging from where and how wine grapes grow to the world’s most celebrated wines and regions. So, grab a glass of wine, and join us as we explore the world of wine via the world wide web. Capacity is limited, register early to secure your spot.

About this Webinar:
It has often been said that great wines are made in the vineyard. Winegrowers and winemakers wax lyrically about the terroir of their vineyards, but what exactly does “terroir” mean and why do wine enthusiasts care? The French term “terroir” doesn’t have a literal translation and the common interpretation is “sense of place” but it’s often reduced to mean “the soil” for simplicity, but it is so much more than that. In this session we will discuss the environmental influences that make up the concept of terroir and how they influence the personality of the grape and the wines you enjoy.

Presented by: Sam Schmitt, CS, WSET3, CWE
Sam is Lingua Franca’s Director of Operations. He came to the Oregon wine industry in 2016 after a long career in management consulting and corporate training. An avid wine enthusiast, Sam is a CMS Certified Sommelier, a SWE Certified Wine Educator, earned his WSET Level 3 Certification in Wine and is currently pursuing the WSET Level 4 Diploma. He has presented at dozens of conferences and seminars across the country and is well known for his ability to present complex subjects in an entertaining and easy to understand way.

**Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about how to join the session and the session password.**

Let’s make the most out of this situation!

In lieu of our Wine Club Pick Up Party, we will be hosting a live wine tasting with winemaker, Ariel Eberle on Facebook. Join in on Saturday, February 4th at 4pm PST and open up a bottle to taste alongside Ariel!

We’ve selected two special wines to taste:
2018 Chardonnay – This wine is being released in the spring Wine Club allotment. Wine Clubbers, you’ll be receiving it when shipments go out next week. If you aren’t in the Wine Club yet, now is a great time to join so you can taste this wine with us!

2016 Pinot Noir Tall Poppy – We are pulling out all the stops and opening this special bottle of wine with you! This vintage of Tall Poppy has been a fast favorite and is only available in the Tall Poppy Wine Club spring allotment or in the Tall Poppy Trio. If you’re a fan of these wines, then the Tall Poppy Wine Club ensures your very own allotment on these special bottlings and the Trio provides a vertical offering of the 2014, 2015, and 2016 vintages.

If you are a Wine Club member or not, you are ALL invited to join in for the live tasting with Ariel – ask questions, leave comments, suggest pairings, and tag a friend to bring along! We’ll be sharing more videos of wine tastings with Ariel, updates on the blossoming growing season, and what’s going on in the cellar, so stay tuned and follow along on Instagram and Facebook!
