A Special Winemaker Tasting of Patricia Green Wines!

A Special Tasting of Patricia Green Wines with Winemaker Jim Anderson!

 

It has been four months since the passing of our friend, and talented Oregon winemaker, Patty Green. In the intervening time, many of you have asked what the future has in store for the winery. Well, here is your chance to find out.

 

While Patty's free-spirit and name has been at the forefront of these incredible wines, you may not know that she shared the experience with co-owner and winemaker Jim Anderson.

 

On Thursday, March 22nd, from 5:30pm - 7:30pm, we will host Jim for an open house at our Elston Avenue store. Jim will pour a selection of their great wines, signing bottles, sharing stories about Patty and talking about the future of this iconic winery.

 

No reservations are required, and some tasty treats from Publican Quality Meats will be provided to snack on. Round up some friends and stop on by!
