JK Carriere Wines, Thurs. Aug. 13th: 5-7pm

Outstanding Pinots of Willamette Valley!

We will be hosting a meet & greet with owner/winemaker Jim Prosser of JK Carriere Winery. Jim traveled five continents and even cycled the United States before being seduced … by the elusiveness of Pinot Noir.

Jim came to understand Pinot Noir from the messy grape cellar end of things and learned the trade by working for eight great producers in four countries including: Erath, Domaine Drouhin, Brick House and Chehalem in Oregon; Villa Maria in New Zealand; Tarra Warra and T’Gallant in Australia; and Domaine Georges Roumier in Burgundy. 

In 1999, Jim established his own winery, sourced good grapes and started making wine as J.K. Carriere, the combined names of his grandfathers. From the start J.K. Carriere wines have received critical acclaim. Join us on the 13th and taste his award-winning Pinot Noirs for yourself!

Interesting Fact: A wasp features prominently on all J.K. Carriere labels, as it has twice nearly killed him due to a severe allergy.
