Trisaetum - Wine Class - Soil & Its impact on Wine

If you’ve ever been to a wine tasting and heard someone paying homage to the soil content particular grapes were grown in, you may roll your eyes or assume this is a marketing ploy. What if Trisaetum  told you it’s not? Wine growers, wine makers, and wine lovers around the world throughout history have debated the qualities and pitfalls of certain soils and the impact this has on the end result - even the grape varietals themselves are partial to certain soils over others.


In this hour-long class, you’ll taste five Trisaetum wines from our three estate vineyard sites in Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton, and the Dundee Hills, providing the opportunity for you to taste the difference in these three terroirs for yourself. Beth Richman, WSET Level 3 and CSW, will lead the tasting and discussion, explaining the qualities of the different soils, how different grape varieties respond to these conditions, and how terroir impacts the creation of American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). Join Trisaetum for this fun and educational opportunity to taste similar wine styles from various terroirs - with cheese and charcuterie of course! - and taste for yourself the difference the dirt can make.
