Featured Local Winery:
We are pleased to welcome back Patton Valley Vineyards to this year's wine tasting. Having caught "Pinot fever", TIS parent Dave Chen and Monte Pitt founded Patton Valley in 1995. Their dream of owning a vineyard led them to Oregon's Willamette Valley. After a year of looking at dozens of potential sites, they purchased a 72-acre parcel just north of Gaston with the ideal combination of soil, exposure and elevation. Patton Valley Vineyards has a simple philosophy: to put only the best possible fruit in the wine. At Patton Valley, the foremost tenant of winemaking is to allow the characteristics of the site, or "terroir," to show through. Thank you to Patton Valley Vineyards for being part of the wine tasting and for generously providing wine for our auction every year.
