Second Generation Vintners Seminar
July 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Second Generation Vintners (2GV) Oregon Originals is a Pinot Noir collaboration between the Siblings at Elk Cove, Ponzi & Sokol Blosser. Join Winemaker Adam Campbell, Luisa Ponzi and Alex Sokol Blosser for an informative wine seminar and tasting on the 2GV wine project.
This wine is an exceptional cuveé, reflecting the typicity of a region. This wine was crafted from three second-generation, sibling-run wineries, exercising their expertise in the vineyards and cellar. A pioneering initiative designed to raise visibility for three flagship wineries in the Willamette Valley and, by definition for the region at large. The wine is crafted from Pommard Clone fruit exchange of 1.5T of 2017 Pinot Noir from each Estate Vineyard site. Each winemaker was tasked with creating three separate wines, that ultimately would become the final blend. The wine was aged for 10 months in French oak and represents three soil types, Laurelwood (Ponzi), Jory (Sokol Blosser) and marine sedimentary (Elk Cove).
Only 300 cases were bottled, with 150 cases being donated to various charities including Oregon’s Salud Foundation.
Tickets will be available in the new year.
