45 € Inc.VAT / person

Come and discover our wines from Oregon during a blind tasting of 6 wines comparing Bourgogne and Oregon. A fun and relaxed tasting in which 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 Bourgogne 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.

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, precedeed with our cellars' visit.
