HOLIDAY IN OREGON WINE COUNTRY!! Dec. 13th

Very, VERY excited for a special, first-time-ever-at-VINO midweek Oregon winemaker event with FIVE of my favorite wineries and their makers, a  free, drop-in wine tasting that will run from 5-7pm this Wednesday, Dec. 13th.

I thought this would be particularly holiday appropriate as I know a lot of you are looking for Oregon based wines for gifts or to grace your holiday tables. Well, once again showing we care, this is without question a one-stop shopping opportunity, with 15 or so different wines available for sampling, and all will be offered at special “night of the event” discounts! I highly recommend you gather your accomplices and make plans to take advantage of some great local talent sharing their time with us. This is going to be awesome!!
