Mixology opens up a whole new world to the drinking experience. Rather than just smelling and tasting, you are actually impacting and affecting what you drink, when you make a cocktail. The problem of course is that we are not all trained bartenders, but that shouldn’t keep you from making a few very good, very fun drinks. In this interactive seminar, Nick Taylor of Taylor & Taylor Whiskey Co., will take you through a little bit of the history of cocktails and then teach you the fundamentals of making a good drink. At the end of this seminar, you will not only know how to make several excellent tasting cocktails, but you will also understand a few basic ideas that will allow you to make better drinks going forward.
There will be rum, bourbon and Japanese whisky-based cocktails featured.Learn More

Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge Appellation of the Willamette Valley on a 52-acre estate purchased in 2000 by longtime friends Patty Green and Jim Anderson. Known for focusing on vineyard designated and clonal selections of Pinot Noir, they work with the best quality sites to make wines that reflect the diverse soils and micro-climates of the Willamette.
Unfortunately, Patricia “Patty” Green, died unexpectedly, which was a jolt to the Oregon winemaking community as she was truly beloved by all. Co-owner, and winemaker, Jim Anderson has taken the reigns continuing to make wines that honor Patty's legacy and their partnership.
Fellow east coaster, Jim Anderson (from Sebascodegan Island in Maine) features an array of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir which each have a distinct identity through focusing on diverse clonal variations and soil types. Prepare to get geeky as Jim is a true pioneer of pinot!
