It’s another great week of wine tasting! Only a couple of shops have not provided their information (which will be added to this post as obtained).
This week, it appears to be French wine week… Bordeaux, Lesser known French wines, Champagne, and the Wines of France! Toss in Sangiovese, Portugese, a Zin bash, and you still have options while France clearly dominates this Friday.
As always, a helpful video is included in today’s posting. More children… demonstrating what drinking bad wine can do to you… please pay attention, BAN BAD WINE!
Wine is to be enjoyed, with friends, within a welcoming environment and you better be laughing! Wine is fun!
Here’s this week’s slate of opportunities. Updates will be made by noon Friday, so check back for complete information. Remember, taste wine safely! It’s the Oregon way!

We always seem to stumble upon a nice selection of value Bordeaux wines this time of year and we thought we'd share the latest and greatest with you at this tasting. Expect a mix of white and red Bordeaux in the Main Flight, with a couple of Premium pours that feature cellar-worthy examples that won't break the bank. Main Flight $10*, Premium Pours for an additional fee. Our Friday tastings run from 4pm to 7pm but come early, as we pour until the bottles are empty or 7pm, whichever comes first.

“I did a little research through my saved emails and found that we haven’t explored this luscious corner of the wine world since last September! Well, at least when I’m wrong, I’m way wrong. Obviously it is far past time to correct this oversight. I know you love these All-American wines as much as I do based on the rather enthusiastic turn outs we get. With good reason because what’s not to like here? Copious amounts of jammy, juicy red and black fruits. Texture that coats your palates in decadent deliciousness. And if you’re a fan of full-bodied, pleasure bent wine experiences (and if you say you’re not you need to rethink your reason for living), there is nothing better. If Valentine’s Day coming up next week is a sensually driven holiday, then zinfandel has to the official sponsor of all that is passionate. Chocolate and red wine? These will work that angle pretty hard, too…..”
