Preparing for My First Tasting – Rex Hill Winery

I will be heading down to Newburg, OR in about a week, so I decided this would be the opportunity to do my first official wine tasting.  I have learned that the Willamette Valley in Oregon is known for growing Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes.  While red wines are not my most favorite, I think it only makes sense to try what the area is known for.

After doing a quick survey of the area, I have decided to do my first tasting at Rex Hill Winery.  Rex Hill was founded by Paul Hart and Jan Jacobsen, and is now under the guidance of  Bill & Debra Hatcher of A to Z Wineworks.  They have apparently won many awards for the Pinot, so hopefully that will make for a good wine tasting experience. I am excited to give it a try and report back on my experience.

My next step is to read up on how properly taste wine, so I can give an accurate review.  Stay tuned!
