Ridge Tasting

October 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

During the famous Judgement of Paris:  where Steven Spurrier organized a tasting of California Cabernets and Chardonnays and top French wines. To everyone’s surprise, California beat the French in both the red and white flights. The 1971 Monte Bello came in 5th.

Today the winemaking techniques are as pure as they come. With the use of natural yeast they allow the wine to develop itself. Ridge believes they assist the natural process by choosing the vineyards, by watching over the wines, and by applying their experience to how they handle the wines. They are certified organic and are sustainably farmed. If you’re curious about everything that goes into the bottle just look on the label, they write out anything they apply to the wines.

Elk Cove Tasting

October 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

About Elk Cove Vineyards

Elk Cove Vineyards was founded in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell, starting with a property chosen for its shallow soils, steep hilly terrain and beautiful views. While getting started Pat and Joe invited friends to help on the weekends, enticing them with manual labor and wine futures. Joe worked nights in the ER, Pat managed the business, and they both worked long hours in the vineyards and made the wines together. This at a time when there were fewer than ten wineries in Oregon.

Fast forward forty years, there are over 700 wineries in Oregon and the wine business now ranks as one of Oregon’s top agricultural industries.  In that time, the Campbell’s have gained recognition with their award winning cool climate offerings including Pinot Noir, Riesling Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, and have now passed along their vision, and an operation 10 times the original size, to their son Adam Campbell. Their goal has always been hand-crafted, Estate-grown cool climate ­wines that rival the best in the world. As a second-generation winemaker and a 5th generation Oregon farmer, Adam Campbell is proud to continue that tradition.

About Joto Sake

Founded in January, 2005, Joto Sake LLC is one of the leading artisanal sake importing companies in the U.S. The company was started by its President, Henry Sidel, whose career in the food and beverage industry and his passion for Japan led him to launch Joto Sake.

Henry fell in love with sake after visiting Sakagura restaurant in New York City in 2001.  From that point on, he visited Sakagura, bought sake at retail, started taking tasting notes and began developing the business plan for Joto Sake.

In late 2004, Henry left his job as International Marketing Director for Belvedere and Chopin Vodkas and incorporated Joto Sake in early 2005. By August, 2005, Joto received its first container and started selling in the U.S.

In 2006, Henry expanded Joto’s national distribution.  In 2007, Midori Nakazawa joined Joto Sake and in 2009, Stefanie Sowers came on board. The company now sells in over 30 states, through top distributors in each market.  Joto imports from 8 small, artisanal sake breweries, or “sakagura” all in different regions of Japan.
