Summer Sippin' Lecture Series: WINE
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 • 7:00pm-8:30pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR

Will Prouty, Division Wine & John Grochau, Grochau Cellars. Will and John will team up to talk about the “dirt” on wine—how different soils impact farming and, ultimately, expression in wine. They will be offering wines made with grapes sourced from vines planted in distinctly different soil types and talk about how the variations impact the character in the wines. We’ll taste a flight of three different wines, with a discussion specific to each wine and it’s unique circumstance. In the process we will touch on some of the other prevailing influences, but the focus will be dirt and rocks. Division Wine is a neighborhood wine shop and wine bar with over 800 bottles from near and far. Their focus is on expressive wines, made with healthy and thoughtful practices from off the beaten path, including those from Grochau Cellars. Grochau strives to make wines that are balanced, textured and expressive of place, inspired by the diversity of the Willamette Valley’s soils and microclimates. $15 admission. ($40 for the whole series). Doors open at 6:00 for refreshments & strolling. Advance registration required. Other lectures in the series include 8/15 Cider, 9/12 Tea, and 9/19 Cocktail Bitters.
