Auction Sponsor Feature- Patton Valley Vineyard

Guests at this Saturday's auction will be treated to Patton Valley Vineyard’s exceptional Willamette Valley Pinot noirs. Patton Valley Vineyard, co-owned by TIS parent David Chen, prides itself on creating carefully handcrafted wines using the finest, estate-grown fruit and sustainable farming practices. This attention to craft and quality has earned Patton Valley wide recognition for their excellent wines. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar recently gave the 2010 Patton Valley Estate Pinot Noir 90 points and had this to say: "Bright red. High-pitched aromas of strawberry and raspberry, with complicating notes of dried rose and Asian spices. Lively and precise on the palate, with gently sweet red fruit flavors and a touch of rose pastille. The floral and spice notes repeat on the gripping, persistent finish." This Saturday, treat yourself to a Patton Valley Pinot and raise your glass to a great cause!
