Tastings & Classes >>WINE TASTINGS

Purebred Bordeaux

Thursday, September 18
Welcome to the homeland of some of the most famous international grapes on the wine scene: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc just to name a few. This legendary region in southwest France is bisected by the Gironde Estuary, the gravelly soils of the "left bank" responsible for Cab based blends, the clay strewn "right bank" specializing in Merlot based wines. Not to mention rich, sweet Sauternes, the product of the "noble rot" (we'll explain...). Come see what all of the 100 point Wine Advocate scores are about! Tickets are $29

Autumn Delights

Thursday, September 25
Two words: Sweater Wines! The temperatures have finally begun to drop, the leaves are changing, and all you want is to be embraced by your wine selection. Sonoma Chardonnay wraps you up gently in a flannel blanket while sweet and nutty Vin Santo from Tuscany is like sitting in front of a warm fire. Join us as we enter the most beautiful of the seasons! Tickets are $19

Laphroig Scotch Tasting

Monday, September 29
Tis the season for Scotch! Join us in welcoming Laphroaig's master distiller for an afternoon tasting through selections from this storied distiller's portfolio. There will be rare treats as well as old favorites, and maybe even a kilt or two! Tickets are $35 with a $25 credit toward the Scotch's tasted.

Mount Eden Portfolio Tasting!

Thursday, October 2
Mount Eden Vineyards is known for being one of the original "boutique" wineries in California, making fabulous wine from small parcels of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon high up in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Winemaker Jeff Patterson emphasizes wine-GROWING over wine-MAKING, treating the grapes with a gentility and naturalness after harvest. Come taste a flight of very special wines! Tickets are $29 w/ a $19 credit towards featured wines

Tempting Tempranillo

Thursday, October 9
Spain's native noble grape is grown throughout the country, and these days, the world. Perhaps its finest incarnation is in the bodegas of Rioja, but it thrives elsewhere in Spain, and in Portugal. New world vine meccas like California and Australia are even joining the party. Spanish wine has certainly caught on in this country, even if free tapas with every drink has not. Tickets are $19

Piemonte: Northwest Gem of Italy!

Thursday, October 16
Come discover one of Italy's premier wine growing regions! Experience the beauty and grace of the classic Barolo and Barbaresco wines, some of the most age-worthy wines in all the world. We will also highlight some of the hidden little gems that are lesser known, white and red, still and sparkling - expect to be impressed. Tickets are $29.

Exciting New Arrivals

Thursday, October 23
Here at the Bin, we are always in an exploratory mood, which means our selection changes--a LOT! Come on down and find out what new stuff has made the cut! Tickets are $19

Scary Good Wines

Thursday, October 30
It's the time of the season for ghouls, goblins and...blind tastings! We like to celebrate Halloween like we celebrate every holiday--with wine! But this time the bottles are shrouded in secrecy. Come see how good your palate is while enjoying a flight of frighteningly good wines. Tickets are $19

Rhone Valley Vines

Thursday, November 6
The Rhone Valley is a warm region in southern France that produces some truly spectacular wines. We will focus our attention on the different appellations of the northern and southern Rhone while tasting a variety of whites and reds, such as Cotes-du-Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape and more!

New Arrival

2012 Lenne "LeNez" Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton

$34.99/bottle or $349.90/case of 12

Soft and rich, the 2012 vintage in Oregon's Willamette Valley produced wines with generous fruit profiles and immediate accessibility. Deftly balanced, concentrated flavors of plum, black cherry, anise and mocha are beautifully woven together before pleasant mid-palate grip and a lingering, fine-grained tannic structure round things out.
