In conjunction with Portland Community College we are working to continue education in wine and wine making. Join us for 4 great classes this spring. Each Class is held on 1 Saturday starting at 11am.
Register for this class to enroll in the series at a discount.
Learn about Oregon's wine industry directly from wine producers in Newberg. Explore behind-the-scenes aspects of wine-making from developing a vineyard/winery, decisions during the wine-making process and pairing wines with food. We'll sample the final fruits of their labors! Five or more wines will be tasted each class. Students must be 21 years old or older to participate in classes serving alcohol.
How does yeast influence a wine? Native ferments or inoculated yeasts? Yeast selection is a key ingredient in the wine-making process. Sample the science and subtle flavor of the ingredient that determines the ultimate fate of a wine.
There are thousands of different Pinots. Like a florist in a rose garden, every winemaker gets to pick vines that suit their palate and place. Pair the art of tasting clonal varieties with the science of soil and site. Enjoy variety.
Did you know oak barrels make wine taste better? Oak is a crucial and often overlooked component of the wine world. Everything from the type, size, age, grain and treatment of an oak barrel affects the wine. Learn to taste the variation!
Learn how geography, geology and climate interact to make wine. What is minerality and where does it come from? Are there vineyard minerals in wine? What is an AVA? Participate in the ongoing debates of wine country and taste for yourself.
