October 11th 5:30pm-7:00pm Highlands School of Wine Exploring the Pacific Northwest: $25 per person
Washington and Oregon round out the West Coast of the United States more than just geographically. They are amazing wine producing states, each in their own right. What sets them apart from many other New World wine producing areas is their ability to straddle the stylistic fence.
Oregon and Washington both benefit from the warm stable weather of the West Coast. It is this warm weather that results in the lively ripe fruit of New World wines. However, their more northerly latitude gives them the benefit of cool nights to retain the refreshing acidity that Old World wines are more known for.
Facetime with a winemaker: Hill Family Estates $10 per person.
After four decades of farming grapes for some of Napa Valley's finest wine producers, fourth-generation farmer Doug and his family decided they should enter the wine business.
Hill Family Estate was born out of the desire for the family to work together - sharing the experience of crafting fine wines that showcased the grapes that Doug farmed and then introducing those wines to the consumer at a tasting room in their hometown, and American foodie capital, Yountville, California.
Doug farms the grapes and helps craft the wine and Ryan runs the sales division, working hard to get the Hill Family Estate wines placed in select accounts for you to enjoy. Carly lives and works in San Diego and hosts tastings and dinners in Southern California while Darci can be found at the tasting room, with Jack (the dog) by her side, tending to the flowers and enhancing our curb appeal. Hill Family Estate is the culmination of Doug's vision - a way to share his love of the valley, of farming and of wine with his children and wine lovers everywhere.
