Did you know most white wine pre-1900 looked orange? Today, orange wine is making a combeback. These are wines made from white grapes where the skins are left in contact with the juice creating the orange color.
Pre the 2016 election, we were getting antsy to offer up Orange Fest. Then something happened. Post election, it just wasn't something we could get our heads and hearts behind. Finally,10 months later, we're doing some reclaiming.
This week long event (Tuesday September 19th thru Sunday September 24th) will be our first of a new offering at @PairingsPdx: WINE SCHOOL: EDUCATION PAIRINGS PORTLAND STYLE. Each month get ready for some tasty fun with an educational twist.
During Wine School Week, there's a 5 wine base flight for $20 per person. If you desire more, there's two 3 wine add on flights available (usually for $10 each). 11 wines in total will be available during Wine School Week.
