Rank #16: UW047 - On Oregon Pinot Noir. St Innocent Winemaker Mark Vlossak
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.
This is Episode #47 of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman. There is more to come.

Rank #17: Half-bottles, Restaurants, and the Meaning of Wine. Elizabeth Pressler of Elizabeth Spencer Winery: The Complete Interview
My interview with Elizabeth Pressler of Elizabeth Spencer Winery was a pleasant wine conversation with a pleasant lady who makes very good wine. What really makes this a turning point was that I asked her "What Does Wine Mean to You?" It was a question I had asked of Dirk Richter and would soon become a motif in later interviews as well. Enjoy! Parts of this video were released as separate episodes of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman and are collected here for the first time.
