2 Itineraries: Owner-Poured Tastings
At the heart of winemaking is the practice of farming. And at the heart of farming is a connection to the soil, a drive to grow a bountiful harvest, and a desire to share it with friends.
In the Dundee Hills, we pride ourselves on pouring award-winning wines with none of the pretension you’d expect. In fact, you’ll often discover the individual pouring your wine also grew the grapes and crafted the vintage. Who better to tell you about the growing conditions of the season and help you detect different elements of the terroir coming through on the palate? This is the definition of approachable elegance and it’s what we’re known for.
Here are two sample itineraries taking you into the tasting rooms where you can enjoy an owner-poured tasting.
24-Hour Itinerary: The Time-Tested Route
Enjoy intimate wine tasting experiences led by owners and winemakers among some of the oldest vines in the Dundee Hills.
24-Hour Itinerary: The View-Seeker’s Route
