An intimate affair for wine lovers who get their geek on over things like the impact of soil, weather, terroir and altitude
If you love good wine—really good wine—you’ll want to put Northwest Wine Encounter on your radar.
Haven’t heard of it before? That’s not surprising. The inaugural event, which I attended last spring, was an intimate affair with space for just a few dozen wine lovers who got their geek on over things like the impact of soil, weather, terroir and altitude on winemaking, learning about these during educational panels led by some of the region’s finest winemakers. And, of course, it helped to taste through flights of really fine wine as the winemakers offered insights and perspective.
