If you want to meet someone who I have much respect for, both as an incredibly talented winemaker and a generally wonderful person to be around, then you absolutely have to stop by this Tuesday, Aug. 4th, between 5:00-7:00 for a free tasting where you can meet and chat with Anne Hubatch of Helioterra Wines. Anne was at the vanguard when ”Urban Winemaking” became such a buzzword as one of the founding wineries at the SE Wine Collective. Now she’s taking her talents to wine country starting with the 2015 vintage and I am super excited to see what new inspirations come from that. Her wines are some of the most distinctive and exciting Oregon (and Rhone varieties from Washington) wines in our market. When we tasted through her latest releases a few weeks ago I was astounded by the quality of frankly every single bottle. They are each expressive, confident wines, much like the lady who makes them. I am extremely pleased to have Anne in the store pouring her wines and sharing her insight this coming Tuesday. I highly encourage you to take time to sample through her local goodness. These are tremendously well made wines that you need to experience!
**As always at our special winemaker events, all wines will be available for purchase/order at 10% or more off the prices listed the night of the tasting only!
