Podcast cover

St. Innocent Winery's Founder and Winemaker Mark Vlossak was responsible for some of the most interesting wines that I tasted during my 2012 trip to Oregon.  The St. Innocent Pinot Noir Temperance Hill absolutely blew me away and the St Innocent Pinot Blanc made me think hard about the white wine potential of this region.

Mr. Vlossak was also one of the Willamette Valley's most eloquent supporters.  Winemaker Mark Vlossak is heavily involved in the yearly "Pinot Camp" educational week for industry professional.  This video, the first of five, gives you a taste of what he can teach us about Oregon Wine.

I interviewed Mr. Vlossak in the cellars at St. Innocent Winery.

Alloro brings Old-World allure to Oregon, just 30 minutes southwest of Portland.

Winemaker David Bellows discusses the three clones of Pinot Noir grown on the Vidon Vineyard Estate with Austin Beeman.

Owned & operated by Don & Vicki Hagge since 1999, Vidon Vineyard is a LIVE certified sustainable vineyard and winery located in the countryside of Newberg, Oregon. They are situated in the Chehalem Mountains AVA at an elevation between 400 and 500 feet facing south towards the Red Hills of Dundee. Don and Vicki Hagge purchased the land in 1999, planted the vines, harvest the fruit, make the wine  and sell it out of the winery. They believe winemaking begins in the vineyard and are proud of the Oregon wines that this Chehalem Mountains vineyard produces on an annual basis.
