8 Takes on an Oregon Evening
You could argue that Oregon Pinot Noir is not the ideal wine for Peking duck (though you might be mistaken), but that's neither here nor there. In this, our second installment on the People's Voice Awards Wine Writer Seminar Series, we hear from some of our favorite authors as they recount a tasting of Oregon wine with Peking duck. So, if you didn't like the Pinot Noir, why not try the Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, Albarino, Gewürzrtraminer, or Syrah?
 
Yes, Oregon is not the one trick pony it is sometimes portrayed as in the media, and even on wine shop shelves. That combination of soil and climate that makes it such a special place for Pinot Noir also allows Oregon's producers to bottle some of the best white wines in the country. And there’s even more to the story than that. As Oregon matures as a wine producing region, vintners are exploring regions that venture beyond the confines of the Willamette Valley, where Tempranillo, Syrah and other less familiar grape varieties are thriving.
 
Learn all about the familiar and the not-so-familiar from a group of distinguished wine writers.
