Postponed from our usual second Saturday spot, our Guest Winemaker today is Oregon wine statesman Harry Peterson-Nedry of RR wines. Harry and his daughter, Wynne, are crafting benchmark Pinot Noirs and Rieslings from their 120 acre Ridgecrest Vineyards estate which contains the oldest plantings on Ribbon Ridge. They are not designed for a mass market, but for serious aging and for understanding the potential of this special land mass called Ribbon Ridge. Their concentration, their blackness, their elegance, their textural excitement all stem from the vineyard—its maturity; deep penetration of dry-farmed vines to find rock, nutrients and water; organic farming; limited yield and sensitive fermentation to protect vintage characteristics.
Join Harry for a rare opportunity to sample and acquire these remarkable wines including a pre-release of the 2016 RR Pinot Noir.
Today’s flight will include wines from both wineries, and is complimentary for Wine Club members.
