Inspired by his visit to Willamette Valley outside Portland (the "O" refers to the state of Oregon), Thomas chose the three bottles pictured after visiting with Archery Summit and marveling at the view and their amazing wine. He also visited with Ken Wright and loved his commitment to handmade Pinot Noir and biodynamic farming. The Ken Wright bottle from Savoya vineyard features a label meant to celebrate the unsung vineyard workers who toil year-round to ensure a world class product come harvest time. The middle bottle, Shea Vineyards, has become a favorite at Thomas' home. Dick Shea is a grower and winemakerómany legendary wines from Oregon have purchased grapes from Dick; to have Shea Vineyard on your label is a mark of distinction.
In exquisite detail, Arvid introduces us to a whole new world of wine. Evoking the ethereal beauty of Willamette, the contrast of soft blues and golden browns echoes the rolling vistas of Oregon vineyards. With three great bottles to share, reminiscing about a great trip is the best part of the evening ... "O What a Night" indeed!
Wines shown are Archery Summit, Shea Vineyards and Ken Wright...all from Oregon!
