The events of UnEarth WillaKenzie are a feast for the senses and your chance to experience our wines and the diverse terroir of our breathtaking estate through sight, sound, touch, smell, and naturally – wine tasting. Discover how food pairings, weather, and terroir play a role in how you experience a wine.
Elevate Your Pairings
During this sensory experience of smells and tastes, you will learn how to pair your favorite WillaKenzie Estate wines with foods that enhance the wines without overpowering them. Learn to balance tannins, acidity, intensity, and more, in congruent and contrasting couplings. Explore pairings created by Chef Dustin from Biscuit & Pickles Catering.
When: Every Sunday in August (7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th)
Tastings offered at 11:30 and 2:30
$75 per person | $50 per member
The Vintage Variable Virtual Tasting
Learn how vintage can shape the smells and flavors of the wine in your glass. We will compare the influence of weather during the 2018 and 2019 vintages on the wines sourced from our two highest vineyard sites – Emery and Triple Black Slopes. Our 2018 growing season was perfectly warm, while the 2019 growing season was a classically cool and wet vintage (what makes Oregon Pinot Noir so special). Learning never tasted so good!
When: August 11th at 4:00 PM
Four-pack of wine featuring one bottle each of our 2018 and 2019 Emery Pinot Noir, and 2018 and 2019 Triple Black Slopes Pinot Noir. Shipping is included. Attendees get to enjoy a special pre-release of the 2019 vintages as these will not be released until later in the year. Tastings are limited to the first 12 households to register.
Spend a day in nature with a self-guided vineyard hike on the grounds of our spectacular estate, as you sip and savor wines and learn about their connection to some of the most diverse terroir in the Willamette Valley. Taste wines from specific vines as you walk past them and enjoy 360-degree views of the valley. Bring your walking shoes!
When: August 27th
