Coury Clone Cookout
A Look Back at the Legacy of one of Willamette Valley Winecountry's Founding Fathers
Back in 1964 Charles Coury returned from France with mysteriously sourced vine cuttings stowed away in a suitcase. Testing his theory that particular vines could thrive in a cool climate like Oregon's, he helped to set into motion the viticultural revolution that put the Willamette Valley on the map. Half a century later the "Coury Clone" is still making some of the most unique and exciting wines in the valley.
July 4th we remember his contributions to the Oregon Wine and Beer (see Cartwright Brewing Co.) industries with a special Coury Clone tasting flight. Come taste through multiple vintages & incarnations of Oregon's original suitcase clone, all paired with good ol' American BBQ compliments of Chef Paul Stanislaw.
