Wine Class and Tasting at OCI with Wine Scholar Maxine Borcherding – Saturday, May 14

Most of the wine produced in the world is made from eight varietals of wine grape, and six of the eight – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc - are native to France.

But how is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc different from a Sancerre? Could you pick out a Washington Bordeaux style blend from a St. Estephe? An Oregon Chardonnay from a Chablis? Or a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from a Burgundy?

In this entertaining and educational session led by Wine Scholar Maxine Borcherding at the Oregon Culinary Institute, we will taste and compare how soil, climate, and wine-making style create old world and new world expressions of classic French varietals. Nibbles will be offered. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! PLEASE CALL THE ALLIANCE AT 503.223.8388 TO BE PLACED ON A WAIT LIST.
