A week from today we are having a tasting that I have been trying to arrange for about a year. For a long time I have been a huge fan of winemaker/owner/farmer Herb Quady’s terrifically good Rhone-style wines from southern Oregon. We first talked about doing this tasting almost a year ago, but schedules did not align until now. So you can imagine the fact that Thursday, July 23rd, from 5:00-7:00pm, I am incredibly happy to have Herb in store for a free, drop-in wine tasting. From his winemaking beginnings at Bonny Doon in California and Troon Vineyards in southern Oregon’s beautiful Applegate Valley, Herb has been working toward making the exact kind of bottled genius you’ll be tasting on the 23rd. I find his wines to complex, marvelously balanced, and very true to their varietal. For my palate and money, these are the best wines being made in southern Oregon. Plus Herb is an incredibly honest, engaging person to be around and someone I know you’ll enjoy meeting. Add on the opportunity to taste some of Oregon’s finest bottled produce and this is yet another “Don’t Miss” evening of wine at VINO. We’ll have eight different wines to sample, so get ready for some serious pleasure!
