Monday, June 18: Women Tasting Wine Seminar

"Adelsheim Vineyard"

Monday, June 18 Women Tasting Wine will feature wines from Adelsheim Vineyard, presented by the amiable Chris  Berning of Adelsheim. As one of the original wineries in Oregon, David Adelsheim first planted the grapes of northern Europe in an undiscovered wine region, the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon's Willamette Valley.  He believed that fine and distinctive wine could be created in the cool climate of this unknown place.  Over 50 years later, Adelsheim is proud of its role in Oregon's wine history and is excited about Oregon's wine future.

Join WTW for a sensual and educational afternoon of wine, food and friends.
Link to Women Tasting Wine webpage Formed in 2005, Women Tasting Wine is all about women connecting with wine and with one another. How many wine tastings have you attended where the men evaluated the wines with serious determination while the women, anxious to talk about and share their thoughts on the wines, remained nearly silent?  Hence, the birth of Women Tasting Wine. WTW is all about women connecting with wine and with one another. We are guided through each month’s selection of wines by various wine expert guests, and the wines are paired with appropriate food samples. The atmosphere is relaxed, casual, “women oriented” and just plain fun. Women come away with not only a better knowledge of the wines, but with a growing connection of friends.
