The Oregon Grille Women’s Wine Club: Sipping Down Under

oregon grille logo

The Oregon Grille Women’s Wine Club returns on Nov. 6, 2014 for the Sipping Down Under wine tasting event. Laurie Forster, The Wine Coach® will host a wine event where you’ll learn about (and taste) some of her favorite Australian wines at The Oregon Grille.

Australia has long been recognized for the amazing wines they craft in the Barossa Valley in South Australia, the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, the Yarra Valley in Victoria and the up and coming wines from Western Australian. Laurie has traveled Australian wine country and will select some of her favorite wines for the evening.

Wine selections will all be expertly paired with inspiring tasting plates from The Oregon Grille.

Tour Australia by glass as Laurie shares a crash course in Australian wine regions, grape varieties along with food and wine pairing techniques.

Just like sipping wine in the heart of Australian wine country, your night will be full of great wine, food and lively conversation!

Tickets include wine tastings, hor d’ouerves, four tasting plates, tax, tip and, of course, edu-tainment from The Wine Coach!
