The Program

Natalie's Estate is nestled in the quiet foothills of the Chehalem Mountain AVA in Oregon's Willamette Valley wine growing region. This family run operation was founded in 1999 with the first commercial single vineyard wines released in 2000.

The people at Natalie's are committed to excellence and dedicated to handcrafting small quantities of premium wines that combine excellent viticulture with traditional European winemaking techniques. By selecting the finest grapes from outstanding vineyards in the Columbia, Yakima, and Willamette Valley appellations, they create rich, powerful and balanced wines with intense varietal character. These wines are produced in small quantities, between 50 and 200 cases depending on the crop yields.

The Natalie's Estate certainly sounds like our kind of people. Come and join us in tasting these wonderful wines.

Since I'm sure you'll enjoy the tasting do your friends a favor and invite them to come with you.

Join us for the "Welcome Wine" at 7:10 PM with the Program to begin at 7:25 PM. Bring 2 (two) wine glasses for comparative tasting, and that friend we talked about to share the evening with you
