Third Annual Oregon Pinot Gris Symposium to be Presented and Held By Oak Knoll Winery (Press Release)


Date: 05/15/13

Oregon Pinot Gris is gathering national awareness, and the effort to increase understanding continues with the Third Annual Oregon Pinot Gris Symposium on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at Oak Knoll Winery.
This year’s focus will be: “What the marketing efforts for Oregon Pinot Gris should cohesively be.” The event continues with the interactive, prototype panel discussion brought to Oregon wine producers, winemakers and wine grower, by Oak Knoll Winery.

This year’s event will have a new twist; producers are encouraged to bring their marketing directors with them. Nationally renowned wine writers continue to also participate, offering their perspectives. The discussion will also include a technical tasting of Oregon Pinot Gris from the panelists. Seating is limited.
