Lawyers Who Wine and the AgriVino Event Center in Carlton, Oregon have joined to present an amazing array of boutique winemakers, talented chefs and outstanding caterers. Beginning with the January 30, 2010 initial wine-inspired dinner, ongoing events at AgriVino will be offered to discerning subscribers such as yourself.
This joint collaboration will focus on the the pairing of fresh, local produce and succulent entree provisions with locally crafted wines chosen to showcase your delicious meal. Your entertainment and wine education will include introductions to, and presentations by, boutique Oregon winemakers at these events. For selected dates, we will add an opportunity for you to meet a new or renowned local artist or farmer.
Veteran Winemaker Robert Brittan, who left Stags' Leap Winery in Napa after 16 years as Winemaker and Estate Manager to fulfill his dream of making Pinot Noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates, will be our January 30 presenting winemaker! Robert has made wines for Far Niente, Saint Andrews and Stags' Leap Winery and is a rock star! Brittan's 2007 Gestalt Block Pinot Noir release was ranked as one of the top 30 wines in Oregon by Portland Monthly magazine.
With over 30 years of experience growing grapes and making wine, Robert brings a wealth of viticultural and winemaking knowledge. With his depth of experience and his passion for Pinot Noir, he brings a new voice to the McMinnville AVA, and will help form the style and definition of Pinot Noir from this recently designated region. Robert is also the winemaker for Winderlea Vineyards & Winery and Ayoub Vineyards, both in the prestigious Dundee hills. You will be served BOTH Brittan and Winderlea wines.
Ellen Brittan has spent the last dozen years in the wine industry, most recently as GM of Rudd Vineyards & Winery in Oakville. Prior to the wine industry, she spent 20 years in Financial Services. She grew up in Seattle, studying French and Spanish Language and Literature at the U of Washington. Ellen is in charge of sales and marketing at Brittan, possesses an amazing array of information about wine and has an excellent palate.
Our goal is for AgriVino Event Center to be recognized as the source of a distinctive selection of fresh and flavorful cuisines, superb wines you may not readily discover, professional and responsive staff and a warm and inviting gathering place to enjoy the love of food and wine.
