Geological Wine Tour

October 12, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm


How do Oregon’s Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and Riesling planted over ancient marine sediments compare with those grown over basalts laid down millions of years ago by some of the most highly effusive eruptions in the world?

How did the Great Missoula Floods at the end of the last ice age alter the landscape that is now home to some of the finest vineyards in the world?

Want to know?  Join Geologist and Oregon terroir expert Scott Burns and Rick Thompson author  of Giga Flood: The Lake Missoula Flood in NW Oregon & SW Washington for a tour of Willamette Valley wine country including a visit to Elk Cove.
