The OWRI is excited to announce our first annual Sparkling Wine Symposium on Thursday, April 14. This all day symposium is led by experts from Oregon, California and Champagne, France, and designed for wine industry members seeking a comprehensive understanding of sparkling wine.

This workshop will cover the theories and economics behind sparking wine production and guide participants through two wine tastings. By working through several sparkling examples, participants will review the climate, soils, sub-regions and winemaking process of sparkling wine in an interactive format. Come prepared to sip, savor and discuss the factors that make sparkling wine unique and distinctive.
