Lenné Estate's winemaker Steve Lutz will host this "Red vs. Black" blind tasting. We'll sample eight Oregon pinot noirs side by side, four from the Dundee Hills AVA (red fruited) and four from the Yamhill-Carlton AVA (black fruited). Attendees get to rank their favorites, try to figure which are red vs. black, and learn about all the wines. How does the AVA, vineyard, and winemaking style influence the aromatics, flavors, and mouthfeel of Oregon Pinot Noir? All wines are revealed after the tasting, to the surprise and delight of all.
Event price includes a hearty antipasto lunch and is limited to 20 attendees. Our blind tastings are open to the public, and wine club members receive discounted pricing. No other winery in the Willamette Valley conducts these sort of events; refer to our Blind Tastings article for more details.
