Mark Vlossak of St. Innocent Winery – Chapel Hill store, Thursday June 7th, 2012. 5-7pm. Free. – Since founding St. Innocent in 1988, winemaker/President Mark Vlossak has become one of Oregon’s leading producers, and we are pretty jazzed to host him here for the release of his 2010 single-vineyard Pinots. Mark’s incredibly informative and loves to share the story of Oregon Pinot Noir and demonstrate the effort of the Willamette Valley’s different terroirs, and what better way to learn than sipping them side-by-side!
[Todd here...] look folks, this is top-notch juice from one of Oregon's premier producers. For free. If you like Pinot, this is a don't miss, change my plans, get a babysitter kind of tasting...
The parking lot is likely to be jam packed... please consider parking across Homestead Road in the UNC parking lot...
