Enjoy the Pioneering Spirit at the Oregon Wine Trail
Have you ever wanted to recreate the magic of the Oregon Trail but without all of the starvation, death by dysentery, and caulking the wagons? Have you ever wanted it with a lot more wine involved? Then you’re in luck! This year, on March 4th, more than 50 different wineries from our friendly neighbors from Oregon will be traveling to 511 Harrison Street in San Francisco in order to present to you one of the most exciting wine-themed events of the entire year at The Oregon Trail Wine Tasting 2020.
With the simplicity of the pioneers as their guide, the event coordinators have eschewed pomp and embellishment in favor of a stripped down event where the wine itself is the king. This will not be your standard shoulder-rubbing evening where as more attention is paid to the size of the cheese cubes than the wine itself. Here at the Oregon Wine Trail, wine is king. Just as it should be.
Oregon is well-known for the stunning wines it produces, so it should come as no surprise that the event is attracting a wide range of vineyards all bringing their own unique products to the Bay Area. Included in the lengthy list of participating vineyards are:
- Union Wine Company
- Left Coast Cellars
- Montinore Estate
- Penner-Ash Wine Cellars
- Elizabeth Chambers Cellar Abacela Winery Anne Amie Vineyards
- Rex Hill
- Keeler Estate Vineyard
- Idiot’s Grace Wines
- Foris Vineyards
Obviously this is a small fraction of the various wineries that will participate in the event, and if you want to get a full idea of how many grape-stompers will be milling about you should consider purchasing a ticket to the event as soon as possible.
In addition to the wine itself, the event will include some truly exquisite foodstuffs provided by numerous Oregonian culinary experts. From Olympia Provisions you can expect mouth-watering charcuterie that has been carefully handcrafted in order to ensure quality. From Andy Ricker, a James Beard Award winner from Portland, some of the same flair that made his cocktails at Pok Pok such eye-opening elixirs.
More food vendors, more wineries, more fun, and more knowledge is only to be had by attending the 2020 Oregon Wine Trail on March 4th.
