2019 International Tempranillo Day

International Tempranillo Day (ITD) is November 14, 2019.  We’d like to encourage all Tempranillo-producing wineries in Oregon to celebrate International Tempranillo Day with a winemaker dinner at a restaurant of your choosing.  To assist you, click HERE for a list of possible restaurants (several of which have Spanish themes).  If Thursday the 14th isn’t available, consider setting up the dinner on another day that week.  Be sure to share your winery’s ITD plans on our Facebook Page with the hashtag #TempranilloDay.

2020 Oregon Tempranillo Celebration

The 2020 Oregon Tempranillo Celebration (OTC) is scheduled for Sunday, January 19, 2020 at the Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites in Ashland, Oregon.  As previously announced, the Board decided to permanently locate the annual Oregon Tempranillo Celebration in Ashland.  While the OTC will remain an annual event, the educational seminar component of the event will now take place every other year.  So in 2020, the OTC will include only the Grand Tasting.  Please be sure to SAVE THE DATE!  Wineries will be receiving a registration packet in October.

2020 Tempranillo Tour

Planning is in the early stages for the Oregon Tempranillo Alliance to host one or more prominent wine writers for a special Tempranillo Tour of Oregon. We are working closely with Travel Southern Oregon in this effort and expect to be able to announce details before year-end. Member wineries may have the opportunity to be featured on the tour and/or have their wines included in a special tasting for the critic(s). Stay tuned for more information.

2020 Portland Grand Tasting

Planning is also underway for a Portland Grand Tasting to be held in June or July 2020.  This event is intended to be an annual occurrence that will enable member wineries to showcase their wines to Oregon’s largest population center.  Additional details will be announced shortly.
