Featuring pork... the elements of Italy will be on display and the layered, depth of flavors will turn the evening into an event.
For this evening's wine pairing we have a special guest wine grower and expert Sam Tannahill from Newberg, Oregon.
SAM TANNAHILL: Founder, Director of Viticulture & Winemaking
Sam worked in wineries and vineyards in Burgundy while earning a post-graduate degree in winemaking from the University de Dijon. He worked with Ted Lemon at Littorai before serving as Winemaker at Archery Summit for seven years. In 2002, he joined Deb & Bill Hatcher with wife, Cheryl Francis, to launch A to Z Wineworks. A to Z quickly became Oregon's fastest growing winery and in 2007 purchased the legacy winery, REX HILL. A to Z has worked with over 100 vineyards in Oregon and has more winemaking experience than any other winery.
REX HILL has been making elegant Pinot Noirs for over 30 years in the Willamette Valley at the gateway to Oregon's wine country. REX HILL honors exceptional single vineyards and continues a legacy of singular Pinot Noirs that reflect their origin. That sense of place is paramount to the way we farm our land and make our wines.
