Great American wine beyond California! We’ll cover the Willamette Valley, America’s treasure chest for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. And the expansive Columbia Valley, giving Napa and Sonoma a strong run for the money on Cab, Merlot, and Syrah. Stellar producers we’ll explore include Four Graces (beautiful Euro-style whites), Cristom (single vineyard Pinots, yay), Independent Vintners (great bang-for-the-buck varietals), Hedges (red & white blends), Januik (lauded winemaker Mike J.), and Tamarack (fine across the board). And, a special treat from the iconic producer Andrew Will.
