Come and discover our wines
from Oregon during a blind tasting of 6 wines comparing Burgundy and Oregon. A
fun and relaxed tasting where wrong answers are permitted!
In 1979, a blind wine
tasting was organized by a prestigious food and wine magazine and a wine from
Oregon came out top against the finest burgundy wines. Robert Drouhin
unequivocally understood the potential of the region.
A few years later, he sent
his daughter Veronique - winemaker of Maison Joseph Drouhin - to learn and work
in the Willamette Valley. She has returned to Oregon every year since then. In
1987, they decided to purchase land used for wheat production in the Dundee
Hills (Willamette Valley) and began planting their first vineyards in Oregon:
Domaine Drouhin Oregon. In 2013, the new generation bought further south, a
second estate, Roserock, 279 acres in the Eola-Amity Hills (Willamette Valley).
There are a lot of
similarities between the two regions even though they are separated by
thousands of kilometers. Will you be able to identify them?
The tasting will correspond to 6 wines, 2 whites and 4 reds, followed by the
visit of our XIIIe and XVe centuries cellars.
Wednesday August 27th at
The visit/tasting will last
