Join us for the first annual Multnomah Village Vine & Dine event, benefitting the Multnomah Village Bloc’s Initiative, on August 19, 2012!
Local wine and food stars will provide an afternoon of wine tasting paired with sweet and savory bites in charming Multnomah Village. Enhance your wine tasting skills with the unique, interactive aroma sampling exhibit. Practice finding the aromatic elements in your glass.
Guests will taste wines and chat with local winemakers and chefs. Purchase the wines that you love by the bottle to go!
VIP Tickets are available, providing early entry, including a presentation by Geologist Alan Busacca, Exploring Washington’s Ice Age Terroir. Alan’s talk will lend insight into the geological reasons why the Northwest is such a phenomenal wine growing region. Alan Busacca, PhD has more than 30 years of professional expertise and consulting in soils, geology and climate. He specializes in the Pacific Northwest but also consults around the world. He is a Professional Soil Scientist and Registered Geologist. WINO Magazine Online described him as “A superhero for vintners, he saves the day by traveling the globe to help wine growers produce the best grapes possible.” Named “The Doctor of Dirt” by Northwest Wine Anthem, this guy makes dirt interesting!
