VAIL, CO (July 21, 2011) – Join us for a tasting featuring Oregon’s Brooks Winery this Sunday, July 24th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Marketplace on Meadow Drive Wine Shop.  

  The event will feature two selections from the Brooks collection. The first is the 2007 Amycas, a white blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer , Chardonnay , Muscat and Riesling. We will also feature the 2008 Willamette Valley Riesling, a recipient of the Gold Medal at the 2011 Fingerlakes International Wine Competition.

Brooks Winery, located in Willamette, Oregon, is committed to organics and focused on producing their high quality wines without future impact on our world.  

“Our approach to winemaking is simple. We seek natural balance in the vineyard and cellar, to show the true expression of terrior in our wines. We are passionate about organic and biodynamic farming ; as we believe it not only creates better wines, but these important practices help keep our earth alive and ecosystem intact,” said Janie Brooks Heuck. “While we respect the individuality of each vineyard and its sense of place, we maintain the philosophy that the greatest depth, flavors and balance in a wine are achieved by blending. Our focus is to produce beautiful Riesling and Pinot Noir , both of which are perfectly suited to grow in the cool Willamette Valley climate. Most of all... we hope you enjoy our wines with good friends and family, with wonderful cuisine! “

  The tasting will occur during Vail’s popular Farmers’ Market, where attendants can browse hundreds of unique vendors, including Marketplace on Meadow Drive, where a variety of food and drink options are available for purchase.   The Wine Shop at Marketplace on Meadow Drive features a wide selection of wines ranging from daily table varieties to collector vintages.
