It's clear from how fast our Oregon class sold out this summer: New Yorkers have caught on to the magic of the Pacific Northwest. Defined by two epic mountain ranges, vast desert, an ocean, and 18 million years of tectonic chaos, this magical region isn't just postcard-perfect––it's a thriving wine scene that still has room to soar, and it's right here on the continent we call home.
We're going under the hood (Mt. Hood glamour shots aside) to examine the fascinating terroir of Oregon and Washington through the lens of its great wines, like Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cab Franc, plus some less-expected treats. And because the PNW's tapestry of soil types is so magnificent and unique, we're going to do this through the lens of dirt.
Flatiron's own Julia Burke (DWSET) will explain how the incredibly diverse soils of this region translate into great wines, give you an insider's view of the PNW's exciting and challenging golden age, and share tips for getting the most out of these regions, whether at your table or on vacation. This class will begin at 6:00pm on Tuesday, September 19 and run for approximately 90 minutes as we taste five wines. Wines discussed in class will be available for purchase with a discount available to attendees only. Seating is limited.
