FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- MARCH 26, 2017-
taste. learn. celebrate. — Saturday, May 6 — an educational and tasting event about wine and grape growing, presented by local winemakers as they kick off Oregon Wine Month
Cascade Foothills Winegrowers is proud to present the second annual taste. learn. celebrate., a public tasting event that showcases the family-grown, cool-climate wines of the Willamette Valley’s east side.
The grand tasting takes place on Saturday, May 6 from 12–5 pm at the Festhalle in Mount Angel, Oregon. Tickets are available for $15 per person from cascadefoothillswine.com and include ten wine tastes and an afternoon of music and wine education. Additional tastes and food available.
Wine lovers can mingle with the winemakers, learn about the process of making wine in the Cascade Foothills, and enjoy hard-to-find-wines. Tractors, bottling lines, corkers and labelers will be on display, along with fun, “hands on” activities as we show how wine goes from grape to bottle.
And the “celebrate” aspect? Cascade Foothills Winegrowers honor May as Oregon Wine Month… a statewide celebration of all things wine.
We invite our fellow Oregonians (and those who just love Oregon wine) to discover the uncrowded byways of our unique winegrowing region, just minutes from the center of Portland and Salem.
