Please join us for the 2018 Oregon Tempranillo Celebration to be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Portland, Oregon, on January 19-21, 2018. This will be the 3rd year for this amazing event that celebrates Oregon Tempranillo, and the first time the event will be held in Portland. The event is open only to OLCC-licensed wineries that produce tempranillo wine in Oregon.
The Celebration will kick off with a Welcome Reception on Friday, January 19th. The main event on Saturday will feature five tempranillo-focused seminars, including Clonal Aspects of Tempranillo, Winemaking/Cellaring Practices, Lunch with Oregon Tempranillo, Marketing Tempranillo, and Spain-to-Oregon. The Saturday event includes both lunch and dinner, where you’ll have an opportunity to share your impressions from the seminars, and a bottle of your wine.
