We turn our attention next to Oregon, which to many is synonymous with Pinot Noir, that fickle varietal, the most planted in the state at which Oregon excels! But there’s more! Now considered a world class wine region, Oregon has 18 approved wine growing regions, over 600 wineries and 900 vineyards, and the state is known for high quality award winning wines.

 

To fill us in more and share with us the story and wines of a very special, pioneering winery founded in 1971 called Sokol Blosser, we chat with Michael Kelly Brown the V.P. of Consumer Sales. Sokol Blosser is family owned and operated, organically farmed winery located in the Willamette Valley, having established themselves as a true legacy Oregon winery.

So we’ll start off the show today with a bang or should we say a POP with a very special bubbly. This historic premium Champagne house is breaking all the rules with their latest launch.

 

Straight from the garden into your champagne glass goes a cucumber, or perhaps a bell pepper. In my champagne? Yes..that’s right, Veuve Clicquot is causing a sensation with their revolutionary recently launched Veuve Clicquot RICH… Champagne.
Veronique Gonneville, National Brand Manager for Veuve Clicquot to join us to tell us all about it.
