A Mother’s Day wine list inspired by our sommelier tasting event

In the last days of February, Oregon Wine Board hosted 20 sommeliers for lunch at Trivet. The tasting included 12  wines alongside delicious seasonal fare from Jonny Lake’s kitchen. 

We felt that this wine list serves as great inspiration for your Mothering Sunday entertaining, gifting or your, the next special occasion. You might even see these excellent winemakers appear on restaurant wine lists in the coming months, so take note!

Many of the sommeliers commented on the incredible variety coming from Oregon, as well as the unique character and elegance of the bottles tasted on the day. We have listed four of the wines readily available via online retailers, along with the full tasting list from the day for those budding sommeliers at home. 


Joel Gott Pinot Gris 2017

The cool climate of WIllamette Valley makes for perfect Pinot Gris growing. A fresh style, with peach notes and citrus acidity, this Pinot Gris perfectly pairs to canapes, seafood or lighter pasta dishes. 



Adelsheim Chardonnay 2018

Those who love a fresh, bright Chardonnay with a vein of minerality will enjoy this bottle alongside cheese, fish, poultry or creamy dishes.

Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Chardonnay 2018 

Something a bit more special, perhaps a gift or something to put away for a beautiful dinner at home. This Chardonnay is buttery and balanced with pear, apple and peach notes. Great with pork or chicken dishes. 



Louise Vineyard Pinot Noir, Cristom 2017 (half bottle) 

Deep cherry flavour with floral aromas. This Pinot Noir has body and is best served with game, pork roast or vegetarian dishes.
