Oregon’s wine industry is well-known for its pinot noir, chardonnay and Riesling. The members of the Central Oregon Winegrowers are eager to introduce you to the new varieties of wine grapes in Oregon’s expanding wine scene.
The Central Oregon Winegrowers invite you to attend a moderated panel discussion to learn about the wine grapes being successfully grown in Central Oregon vineyards. The meeting is 6pm Tuesday, August 17 at Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards, 70450 NW Lower Valley Dr. in Terrebonne.
Vineyards owners from Bend, Redmond, Prineville and Terrebonne will share their knowledge about the cold-hardy wine grapes being cultivated in Central Oregon’s unique High Desert and the award-winning wines being created. Vineyard owners will talk about why they chose to grow Marechal Foch, Marquette, La Crescent, Brianna, Leon Millot, Frontanc Gris and Frontanc as well as other varieties on the horizon.
After the discussion, there will be a festive social hour. Please bring a bottle of your favorite wine and an appetizer or dessert.
