Vineyard "Work Party"

  • Nicholas Vineyard

A favorite event! Wine Club members are invited to join us in the vineyard for an informative overview of the 2017 vintage to date. Then you'll be given a task to complete at your own pace. Learn what it takes to nurture a vineyard towards harvest, and the many steps we take at this critical stage of winemaking

We'll follow with a BBQ lunch, accompanied by a well-earned glass or two of wine! This is a complimentary event for Club members, with a nominal $25 charge for their guests. RSVPs necessary to 503-537-9150 or wineclub@anamcaracellars.com

Robert Canaga Artist Reception

Meet Eugene artist Robert Canaga at the Tasting Room Gallery and enjoy his spectacular canvases. 
From the artist:  "An artist commits part of the soul to their work, but this is not a subtractive process for me. I grow when I put these images out into the world. I gain knowledge of myself when I complete a painting, so each work leads to the next like completing a puzzle.
I’m a purist when it comes to color; I carry precise colors in my mind’s eye. The windows of my studio do not reveal the surrounding landscape, because I deliberately decided not to be influenced by the external. I’m fascinated by color frequencies and how those frequencies relate to each other.

I work from glimpses of nature, vineyards, and other land forms.

Several times in my life, I’ve been very close to my own death. These experiences, and my art, taught me to fully stand in the moment, where there is no time, and everything happens at once.

International Pinot Noir Celebration

No wine event on the planet rivals IPNC! While we are not featured this year (wineries take turns) we'll be there to taste a spectacular collection of Burgundies, and Pinots from Oregon and around the world. A few tickets remain for this bacchanalia of wonderful wines, superb cuisine, unique vineyard and winery visits and so much more. Join us if you possibly can!

Here are a few words on the Grand Seminar:  The French Adventurers

Burgundians Making Pinot Noir in Oregon  “On a splendid morning of July 1987, in the hills of Dundee, my father looked at me and said ‘let’s try to make wine here, I believe in this place’. In 30 years the journey has been as challenging as it has been a fascinating adventure.” – Véronique Boss-Drouhin

In more recent years, emissaries from Maison Louis Jadot, Domaine des Comtes Lafon, Méo-Camuzet, and Domaine Marc Roy have decided to put down their roots in Oregon as well. Join moderator Eric Asimov of The New York Times, and savor examples of their Oregon wine as they share tales of their adventures here in the New World.

... and one of the "University of Pinot Noir" topics:
THE IMPACT OF VINTAGE IN BURGUNDY  Join Allen Meadows, along with Chisa Bize, Mathilde Grivot, and Etienne de Montille, in an exploration of how a growing season impacts the finished wine. Each winemaker has chosen two distinct vintages to share with you to compare and contrast. Learn from the winemakers how vintage characteristics contributed to the finished wine, and how each vintage offers up something new by imparting a personality of its own.
