In a decadent 90-minute session, wine experts lead tasters on a tour of varieties including rich reds, crisp whites, and fruit-infused dessert wines. With tasting glasses finally tapped, patrons emerge with a mental list of new favorite concoctions and the know-how required to make well-informed future purchases.
Featured in Pacific Edge for their trailblazing approach to crafting wine, Oeno Winemaking founders Lindsay and Greg Minarik craft an eclectic variety of bottled bouquets from pre-crushed grapes and speedy fermenting techniques. The winery hosts wine-sampling sessions, which educate sippers on the nuances of aroma and body while imparting the skills of proper swirling, sniffing, and spilling in tribute to sommelier homies. Patrons who desire Oeno wines can purchase a barrel of their choice from more than 50 varities, which age for up to six weeks in a temperature-controlled cellar-type crypt. Interested oenophiles can then return with friends in tow for bottling parties, during which coteries pour their chosen varietal into 28–31 bottles emblazoned with their own personalized labels. Amidst their cache of bottles and corks, Oeno also stocks beer-making kits, which include materials for up to five gallons of homebrews.
At Oeno Winemaking, owners Marshall Ziegler and Bryon Crowther want to share their passion for wine with others. To that end, they offer a variety of unique experiences that help customers learn about and explore the winemaking process. Tasting sessions let customers sample a range of varietals and take home a bottle or two of their favorite. Paint and wine classes give budding artists a chance to create wine-fueled masterpieces. And the staff will even walk customers through the process of creating their own handcrafted personalized wine, whether it's to celebrate a big birthday or to simply stock an at-home cellar.
