MEDFORD, Ore. -- Local wineries are competing in a blind taste test against some of the very best in the world.
Harry and David set up a wine event going on throughout the month of February called, "Southern Oregon vs. The World," where local wines are matched with a competitor.
The wineries will have a representative here at the store on each Saturday and tastings are scheduled from 11am – 4pm at Harry and David Country Village in Medford.
Southern Oregon wines that have been a part of the competition include:
Quady North: Flagship Syrah vs. Reynvaan Syrah (Washington State).
Cowhorn Winery: Viognier vs. St. Cosme Condrieu (France).
Kriselle Cellars: Tempranillo vs. from Spain.
Troon Vineyard: Vermentino vs. from Italy.
Ledger David Cellars: Sangiovese vs. Chianti Classico (Italy).
Cuckoo’s Nest Cellars: Fizzé Muscat vs. Primo Amore Moscato D’Asti (Italy).
Roxy Ann: Cabernet Sauvignon vs. Trefethen Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)
Griffin Creek: Cabernet Franc vs. Owen Roe Cabernet Franc (Washington State)
On Feb. 23 and 24, Roxy Ann and Griffin Creek wineries will be matched up with competitors on the west coast.
Wineries are involved in decisions determining which wines will be chosen as their competitors. We are working to really raise the bar and use wines that will offer stiff competition. No chumps in this lineup.
Each winery, along with the one wine involved in the competition, will also be pouring additional wines from the winery that day.
