Education

Tasting wine is a deeply personal experience. Each person’s palate — their ability to smell and taste — is different. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to taste wine, but knowing something about the wine you’re drinking can help you appreciate it all the more!

In our series of Wine 101 classes, Syndicate co-owner David Anderson leads attendees through a fun and engaging hour of sipping, chatting, learning, and sharing. His approach to education is designed to be accessible for wine drinkers of all experience levels.

As part of the session, attendees may purchase bottles presented during the class at a special price, as well as any bottles from our larger library bottle shop.

Classes are $30 per person which includes education and wine flights.  All of these classes are best paired with a Mini Board, purchased separately.

Winegrowing Regions of Oregon

Saturday, March 16th, 12 PM and 2 PM Classes

Oregon is home to 23 distinct winegrowing regions, known as American Viticulture Areas, or AVAs. The primary regions are the Willamette Valley, Southern Oregon, the Columbia Gorge and Eastern Oregon. The class highlights primary varietals (types of grapes) grown in these regions, and styles of winemaking as they are influenced by local microclimates.

As part of the class, attendees will taste through eight (8) different wines, selected to highlight characteristics of wines from the four regions.

A future class will examine nuances between specific sub-AVAs of the Willamette Valley, with an emphasis on Pinot Noir, and is set to draw on content covered in this first class. It is recommended to attend this first class, if you are interested in follow-on materials, to become familiar with the regions as a whole.
