Civic Winery & Wines civicwinery civicwinery Posts

See below for a link to a special Winery review of Civic Winery by Terry and Kathy Sullivan, authors of several books about wine as well as creators of a well established wine blog. Additionally, Terry and Kathy are winemakers with a special passion for amphora winemaking so they were especially interested in my amphora wines. They imported a Kvevri to the US from the Republic of Georgia to make their wine and in fact, see their book on Georgia: Sakartvelo: the Birthplace of Wine. I make an amphora fermented and aged Orange wine, inspired by Georgia Kvevri winemaking . . Review of Civic Winery and Tasting notes: http://winetrailtraveler.com/oregon/civic.php . . Additional information: Terry and Kathy Sullivan began second careers in the wine industry, establishing Wine Trail Traveler in January 2007. By the fall of 2016, they had visited over 1,250 wineries and vineyards in Italy, France, Croatia, Georgia (Sakartvelo), England, Wales, New Zealand, Ontario and Quebec in Canada and 20 US states. Along the way they have photographed thousands of winery scenes, compiled extensive notes, written hundreds of informative articles and authored four books. They discovered every winery has a story to tell and the Sullivans want to help get the wine stories out. . . Wine Trail Traveler - winetrailtraveler.com/ . .

Just posted blog mentioning Civic Winery & Wines and other great rainy day activities in Eugene “Civic Winery & Wines is one of the newest wineries in downtown Eugene. Taste a wine made in clay pots as the ancients did in an urban tasting room which includes a graffiti wall. Head out into wine country on a rainy day for a cozy tasting experience at a winery like King Estate where the views are incredible as is the food and wine” https://www.eugenecascadescoast.org/blog/post/rainy-day-activities/

Some family of the owners of Umani Ronchi attended my wedding in France years ago. We visited and stayed at the vineyards subsequently. My wife reconnected with them in Italy a few weeks ago while researching her second book. Umani Ronchi have been producing fine wine in the Marche and Abruzzo for decades. . . I thought it appropriate to introduce two of their many amazing wines here at the Civic and serve by the glass this week. . . 2017 CASAL DI SERRA - Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC Classico Superiore. Verdicchio is a white wine grape variety that has been cultivated for hundreds of years in the Marche region of central Italy. Pairings - Ideal with fish dishes, oven‐cooked or grilled, roast white meat and fresh cheeses. . . 2017 PODERE Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC. Montepulciano 100%. Montepulciano is one of the most widespread indigenous varieties in Italy, and is cultivated predominently along the Adriatic side of the peninsula. Pairings - Pasta with meat sauces, roast white and red meat, chicken and rabbit chasseur, mixed grills. . . #umanironchi #civicwinery #montepulcianowine #verdicchio #marchewine #urbanwinery #eugenedowntown #winebar
