Micro-Winery Pop-Up tasting with Jasper Sisco, Hanson and Franchere
October 8 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10
PORTLAND, Ore. — The Tasting Room at Cellar 503 in Southwest Portland will play host to a pop-up tasting for three dynamic, young Oregon wineries 1-4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 8.
The three wineries – Jasper Sisco Wines, Hanson Vineyards and Franchere Wine Co. – are committed to producing unique, site-expressive, artisanal wines at accessible prices. All three work with sustainable vineyards and work gently in the cellar, without new oak or excessive manipulations.
In addition to producing Pinot Noir, the three wineries are also committed to showcasing wines made from grape varieties less commonly found in the Pacific Northwest. Jasper Sisco works with Cinsault and Muscat grapes from Oregon and Washington; Hanson grows and bottles Gamay and Pinot Blanc; and Franchere produces Grüner Veltliner and Syrah grown in the Willamette Valley.
The public is invited to meet the winemakers and experience their unique wines and their lovely expressions of Pinot Noir for just $10 per person, with one tasting fee waived per 6 bottles purchased.
The Tasting Room at Cellar 503 is at 4407 SW Corbett St., just minutes from downtown Portland.
