Bend Walking Wine Tour

My walking wine tours are fun and educational. I have shared my wine tasting tips with thousands of clients over my 20 years in the wine industry. You will learn to taste like the pros. Each tour begins with a 20 minute mini-seminar on wine tasting.


Throw a Wine Tasting Party!

Most people learn wine tasting skills by observing others and never learn the proper techniques and the reasons why of wine tasting. I offer a fun and educational wine tasting seminar designed for your home wine party. You and your friends (up to 8) will learn to taste like a pro. We discuss the science behind wine serving temperatures, shapes of wine glasses, when to aerate and when not to, to name a few.

I'll bring two local wines, a white and a red, to open and explore with your friends. We will discuss the use of tasting notes and how these can help you develop a "palate" for your favorite wines. We'll start with a blind tasting and have fun "writing" our own tasting notes.

You and your friends will learn about the history of the Oregon wine industry and its origins. You'll be surprised where the post-modern grape growing developed first. Learn why pinot noir is such a big producer of Oregon wines. Finishing with the future of wine in the Central Oregon region.
