Third segment of this weeks Show: Willamette Valley’s Anne Amie Vineyards Second Life - Thomas Houseman and Patrick Evanson

When Dr. Robert Pamplin, one of Oregon’s most forward-thinking philanthropists and businessmen, purchased the historic Chateau Benoit Winery in 1999, his vision was to create wines of the highest quality to reflect his passion for excellence. To this end Dr. Pamplin has charged winemaker Thomas Houseman and winegrower Jason Tosch with the task of crafting extraordinary pinot noir.

Anne Amie Vineyards is part of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers.
