On Wednesday, February 3rd, Antrim 1844 was honored with a visit from James Cahill, the partner and winemaker for Soter's prestigious North Valley.
This rare wine tasting featured a selection of North Valley wines best known for its locale in Oregon's most recognized appellation for cool climate varietals, Willamette Valley. It is in the Northern part of this region where the finest vineyards are found - an epicenter referred to as North Valley. From within this region of the rolling hillsides and diverse soils, the North Valley Vineyards Partners create three tiers of exceptional wines: "Classics," "Origins," and "Reserves."
Guests began the evening gathered in the warmth of the Mansion's twin Drawing Rooms with a welcome and opening remarks from Richard and Cahill.
Guests enjoyed a delightful array of hors d'oeuvres while tasting favorites of North Valley's reds and whites, all the while enjoying the captivating passion James shared for his love of winemaking.
With a shared passion for wine, a visit to the wine cellar with Antrim's owner, Richard Mollett and James Cahill developed into tales of fascinating finds and unique wine experiences.
