We Oregonians have a great deal to be proud of. We’re known throughout the country for our year-round skiing, our Bottle Bill, and of course, our wines.
Don't be so surprised. Although Napa Valley has been home to America's wine industry for decades, several states, including Oregon, boast successful industries today, and are providing California with a bit of friendly competition.
This week, the City Club will bring four people together—Susan Sokol-Blosser of Sokol-Blosser Winery in Dundee, Dick Ponzi of Beaverton's Ponzi Vineyards, Bill Hatcher from Domaine Drouhin, and Bob Liner, of Liner and Elsen—for an enlightening discussion of Oregon's position in the world of fine wine.
Join us for this delightful Bastille Day program, and sample the thoughts of four proven experts, as well as the taste of a bit of Domaine Drouhin's finest with your meal.

Wine Is Serious Business 282: Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Blends from 2012
Dan found a few 2012s while at the store, and thought it would be a good time to try some new things. We taste the 2012 Lange Pinot Noir, the 2012 Roco Pinot Noir, and the 2012 Helioterra Pinot Noir. We’ve had wine by Lange on the show before, but it’s been a while, and it’s the first time on the show for the other two. All three are quite different, and provide some good contrast for each other. Did you buy a lot from 2012? What vintage are you looking forward to next?
