you are invited! thursday, April 11, 2019
The Gorge Wine region is a powerful place. It’s a place of extremes—in climate, scenery, and style of wine—where the astounding beauty of the landscape is inextricable from its allure as a world-class wine region. It’s a modern frontier, of sorts, undergoing discovery and growth while holding fast to what makes it special. The extreme conditions that shape the wine are unique to this region—to be sensed, embraced, and celebrated. Creativity is at the heart of the vision for Gorge Wine. The region is marked by an intrepid spirit that seeks to craft something extraordinary through inspiration in dialog with the land.
