During this immersive Thanksgiving Weekend experience in the Dundee Hills, you will enjoy a two-mile progressive hike and wine tasting as you learn about many vineyard characteristics that influence wine.
Lunch is included (a menu is provided on the next step of registration).
– How characteristics such as soil type, vineyard slope, and even spacing of the vines make a difference in how the fruit develops, and the resulting wine.
– Knudsen Vineyards’ history as the first vineyard in the Dundee Hills AVA, and how we serve as a living laboratory to help shape the Willamette Valley.
– What “rootstock” and “clones” are, and why they matter.
– What’s happening in the vineyard this time of year!
Distance: 2 miles on steep terrain – sturdy footwear and weather-appropriate clothing is recommended!
Length: Approximately 2.5 hours
This experience is led by Lester Sparks, Knudsen Vineyards hospitality ambassador, who brings more than 10 years of experience in the fine wine and food industries.
