Pinot Noir Seminar Tonight at Savour Wine and Cheese 5-7pm

unnamed

Our special guest is David Polite, owner and winemaker at Carlton Hill Winery in McMinnville, Oregon – the heart of the famed Wilammette Valley.  He will pour his elegant Pinot Noirs for you to taste, talk a bit about what is involved in growing this very challenging grape, and explain what it takes to make great Pinot Noir.
Come sip, savour, and learn about one of America’s most prized and elusive wines.

Currently 11 acres in production, Carlton Hill Vineyard sits in the center of Oregon appellation Yamhill-Carlton District.  The Yamhill-Carlton appellation, which is comprised of the sedimentary remains of an ancient ocean bed, is unique in that the soils are some of the oldest in the Willamette Valley region.

 

And, while the Appellation is still very young, the wines produced from here reveal very distinct bright, black fruit flavors.” 

 

David and Dan Polite, Carlton Hill Proprietors

  • that in western mass right kim.

    • No, Brian, the Savour event took place right here in Gloucester!

      • There used to be quite a few folks with concord grapes in lanesville one place close to Corner by the dirt road to Harvey’s oil company… some on side walk side don’t cross the wall without asking then and that was only one of many locations (US little Rascals knew them all) … :-)

    Sounds like a fun night, Kim. I’m headed to Oregon in July. …beautiful country.
    The grape photo is lovely, with it’s varying colors.

    No, Baby Kaitlyn lives locally. Hubby and I are off to the Pacific Northwest (Portland is where he grew up) to visit his family. I’ll have to check out some vineyards.

    • Sounds like a wonderful trip Leslie, combining family and friends. Loved the Portland church reflection in the water that you posted awhile back. I hope you have a super trip!
