With intoxicating enthusiasm, Dr. Scott Burns will explain how millions of years worth of geology–in the form of volcanoes, tectonic shifts and massive flooding– created the unique soils of the Dundee Hills. Winemaker Jesse Lange will then present a guided tasting of our coveted 2010 Lange Estate, Freedom Hill & Yamhill Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs, paired with delicious appetizers.
