Come and discover our wines from Oregon during a blind tasting of 6 wines
comparing Burgundy and Oregon. A fun and relaxed tasting where wrong answers
In 1979, a blind wine tasting was organized by a prestigious food and wine
magazine and a wine from Oregon came out top against the finest burgundy wines.
Robert Drouhin unequivocally understood the potential of the region.
A few years later, he sent his daughter Veronique - winemaker of Maison
Joseph Drouhin - to learn and work in the Willamette Valley. She has returned
to Oregon every year since then. In 1987, they decided to purchase land used
for wheat production in the Dundee Hills (Willamette Valley) and began planting
their first vineyards in Oregon: Domaine Drouhin Oregon. In 2013, the new
generation bought further south, a second estate, Roserock, 279 acres in the
Eola-Amity Hills (Willamette Valley).
There are a lot of similarities between the two regions even though they
are separated by thousands of kilometers. Will you be able to identify them?
The tasting will correspond to 6 wines, 2 whites and 4 reds, followed by the
visit of our XIIIe and XVe centuries cellars.
Wednesday August 14th at 10:00 AM
The visit/tasting will last approximately 1:30
