Friday Pop-Up Tasting, Meet The Winemaker, Andrew Rich of Andrew Rich Wines!

Friday, June 28, 4:30pm- 6:30pm

Balance, Grace and Sheer Deliciousness. 

That is the intent of Andrew Rich Wines.

Meet The Winemaker Andrew Rich!

 

Andrew Rich has a long and storied career in wine. After completing school in Burgundy for winemaking, he landed in California where Andrew caught a great opportunity with the funky and offbeat Bonny Doon Vineyard in Santa Cruz. He worked together with equally funky and offbeat Randall Grahm for 5 vintages getting practical experience and honing his style. It was here that Andrew developed a penchant for Rhone wines, which have become the focus of a serious following in the wine world in addition to his iconic Pinot noir. Coming to Oregon was another roll of the dice that panned out well when he casually accepted an invitation from his only fellow American schoolmate from Burgundy and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest.

Andrew is an innovator in the Willamette Valley. Never shying from his passion for Rhone Valley wines, he continues to expand and redirect his course over time, trying and succeeding in a great number of different varietals that all seem to be better than the last. Don't miss this opportunity to meet Andrew and try some exquisite wines from his portfolio!
