Eola Hills, is making a commitment to our region’s economic and fermentation future in the Pacific Northwest by supporting the anticipated experimental vineyard to Clark College at Boschma Farms in Ridgefield, Washington.
Pinot Noir and Chocolate will be hosted in the “Barrel Room” of Eola Hills Wine Cellars from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 22nd. Tickets are $85. The event will feature six pairings of Pinot Noir with chocolates prepared by Fleur Chocolate and select appetizers. A colorful presentation on Clark College at Boschma Farms will be presented at 6 p.m.
Eola Hills founder Tom Huggins realizes that the wines and breweries of the Pacific Northwest, a sustainable and environmentally friendly economic boon, needs to put down more than roots. Fermentation education and standards drawn from the expertise of the Pacific Northwest’s pioneer vintners and brewers needs to be formalized. To do so takes more than education, it requires land combined with resources for curriculum development, equipment and laboratories.
Huggins also believes this event will initiate an on-going coalition of support that includes funding from wine clubs, citizens committed to a sustainable economy, and other vintners and brewers in Oregon and Washington. His dream is that the Pacific Northwest will evolve into the winery and brewery center of the United States.
