Behind The Bar Tasting Series at The Studio-The Wines of Oregon

Behind The Bar Tasting Series at The Studio-The Wines of Oregon


The vast world of alcohol can be intimidating. Whether it's beer, wine, or spirits, there are an overwhelming number of options, and it can be a challenge to figure out what you might enjoy when you are flying blind. To help with this we're launching "Behind the Bar" - an educational tasting series where we bring in some of our favorite Bartenders/professional drinkers to guide us through a selection and provide some knowledge along the way. It's basically school for booze, which is much more fun than normal school, since you get to drink as you go. 

For the moment, Oregon seems to be a distant second in the American wine world, far behind California in terms of history, reputation, and number of wineries. That is changing. The Willamette (rhymes with "Damn it") Valley is gaining recognition as one of the top regions for Pinot Noir in the world, and their Chardonnays are also winning respect. More young, up-and-coming winemakers are looking to Oregon as well, since you can still afford things there, unlike Napa. Join us as we try a few white wines and then some amazing Pinot Noirs from some fantastic producers.

Matt Connor from Vanguard Wines - Certified Sommelier, Certified Specialist of Wine (and former bartender at the Refectory, amongst others) will guide you through this educational tasting of some of the wines of Oregon.

All of the wines will be available for purchase at state minimum retail pricing, so come prepared, pick a favorite (or two), and stock up with a taste of Oregon to get through the Ohio winter!

Cost includes 6-7 tasting pours (2 oz each) and light paired appetizers.
