This class focuses on two great wine regions: the Willamette Valley of Oregon, and Washington’s Columbia Valley. It’s a poorly kept secret that we adore these wines. In this class, you will learn why. The Pinot Noirs, the Cabernets, and the Syrahs are some of the greatest money can buy.  While this class focuses on the more pricey bottles, we will highlight the extraordinary fact that wines from the Pacific Northwest –especially Washington– offer great value, too.

Wine lovers need to know these wines, and that is why we run this class. We will take you through all the most important wine regions and grapes. These are the greatest American wines you didn’t know existed.

The wines you will be tasting will blow your mind. Best of all, you will discover that the region offers better wines at lower prices than any other American wine region, including Napa Valley.
