Oregon Wines and Vines – Is Riesling The Greatest White Wine Grape In The World?

Wine Tasting and Education with Ariel Eberle, Winemaker, Yamhill Valley Vineyards, and
Vicente Pina, Certified Specialist of Wine, Society of Wine Educators
Do you love wine? Do you love Riesling? Do you think all Riesling is sweet? Would you love to learn more about Willamette Valley Riesling directly from an Oregon winery?
- If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are in for a special treat!
- Expand your wine knowledge and get to know this versatile varietal with Yamhill Valley Vineyards. We will discuss:
- Where did Riesling come from? Where is Riesling grown?
- Why is it that some people think all Riesling is sweet?
- Why is Riesling considered one of the very best food-pairing wines? How is it that Riesling has universally low alcohol content?
- Did you know Riesling is known for transmitting the terroir (soil, air, wind, sun, rain, etc.) where it’s grown? What are the aromas associated with Riesling?
- Yamhill Valley Vineyards is the oldest winery in the McMinnville AVA and they produce 100% estate grown wines.
- Since their first vintage in 1983, Yamhill Valley Vineyards’ wines have consistently won top honors in tastings and judging across the nation.
- We will taste as we learn about three vintages and styles of Riesling they produce:
- 2015 Riesling (sweet)
- 2016 Riesling (off-dry)
- 2017 Riesling (dry)
- This educational and interactive course will deepen your understanding of Oregon Riesling, its history, and how it is made.
