Event description
Loiregon!  It's a term coined by those who believe that the Loire Valley, not Burgundy, is the true soulmate to the Willamette Valley.  And there a quite a few wineries on the band wagon, including our friends at the Portland based Division Winemaking Company, Leah Jørgensen Cellars and Bow & Arrow to name a few.  They have uncovered, or planted, native Loire varieties across the Pacific Northwest, from Washington’s Yakima Valley to the Rogue Valley near the California border. That includes ***** de Bourgogne (Muscadet’s grape), chenin blanc and, especially, cabernet franc, plus sauvignon blanc, malbec (known as côt in the Loire), gamay and pinot noir, which is planted throughout the Loire.
Join Erin and Bridget as we explore this connection in a blind flight - 2 traditional Loire Valley (Sancerre & Gamay) and 2 wines from Oregon's Willamette Valley made with the same varieties. The wines will be presented blind, not as a test to see if you can determine which is which, although that will be fun as well, but to keep any preconceived notions of place out of the mix. What we really want to know is what you think. Is the quality similar? The taste? Do you prefer one bottle over another? And most importantly, do you like them? We'd love for you to participate in this very special event where Oregon takes on one of the most famous wine region in the world! 
If you'd like a little something to snack on with your wine, resident cheesemonger Casey Foote will select and present a pairing plate ($10 with flight, $15 without the flight). No standing in line for our Wednesday flights - you sit at a table, we come to you and pour tableside complete with lots of educational info on what you are drinking. The flight of 4 wines is $20 - reservations are highly recommended as we can only seat walk-ins if space allows. All wines and cheeses are available for purchase to have at Swirl or you can take them to go. 
Class Policies:-As with all of our tastings and classes we ask that you not wear perfume, cologne or any other strong scents that could interfere with the wine's aromas for you and those around you.-Refunds can be made with a minimum 3 days advance notice. Credit cannot be given towards future classes.
