April 10, 2019
A Family Winery and Farm owned by Juliet and Alexis Pouillon

I prefer Vigneron to Winemaker because my focus is on the cultivation of grapes throughout the growing season not just what is done in the winery. The daily work that is done in the estate vineyard keeps me grounded and in tune with how the vintage is developing. Because of my close connection with the vines during the year, I have a good sense how the wines will taste as they age in barrel through the winter months and into the bottle.     Alexis Pouillon

Domaine Pouillon is a family-owned and operated winery and farm located in the scenic Columbia River Gorge.  Each year we produce approximately 2,500 cases of delicious and sophisticated wine. Our small size allows us to demand the highest standards from ourselves and our vineyard partners.  The grapes are hand-picked in small lots at their ideal ripeness.  We practice traditional artisan winemaking techniques: gently guiding the wine, allowing it to mature in the cellar before bottling and labeling each by hand.

We use exclusively neutral French oak cooperage for red wines, mixed neutral oak/stainless steel for white wines.  Our operation is a non-mechanized winery with every process done by hand in small lots.

At this program we will be tasting these 6 artisan wines done in a  French Rhone style.

1st Pour:           2016 Edelzwicher (white blend)
                               2018 Rose' 
2nd Pour:         2014 Katydid (red blend)
                              2014 Merlot 
3rd Pour          2015 Grenache                  
4th Pour:         2014 French Press Syrah
At the April 10 program, you will taste 7 premium wines (1 welcome wine, and 6 program wines) along with 4 gourmet food bites.  Bring 2 wine glasses for comparative tasting.
