TASTINGS AT ESTERS
What's Upcoming At Esters
Sunday Tasting – Champagne & Oysters
We’re truly honored to welcome winemaker/proprietor Laurence Ployez from Ployez-Jacquemart to our shop for an extra special Sunday Tasting. I mean, Oysters and Champagne, people! This is going to be epic. Laurence is the third-generation, no-nonsense winemaker behind her family’s estate, which has been making gorgeous Champagnes since 1930. She’ll be pouring 4 of her family’s champagnes, and we’ll be pairing a different raw bar item with each wine – oysters and a kanpachi crudo.
The line-up includes:
- Ployez-Jacquemart Rosé, Vallee de la Marne, Champagne NV
- Ployez-Jacquemart Blanc de Noirs Brut, Vallee de la Marne, Champagne 2012
- Ployez-Jacquemart Blanc de Blanc, Vallee de la Marne, Champagne 2008
Ployez-Jacquemart Extra Quality Brut, Vallee de la Marne, Champagne NV
Wine Club Pick-Up Party
Meet other Esters Wine Club members to pick up your wine (if it’s not being shipped) and enjoy a special bottle opened up that night, along with light snacks. The Esters team will share the stories behind this month’s featured winemakers, so you’re armed with a little more knowledge before popping open those bottles!
If you’re not a member, join! We have three different levels to accommodate your budget and taste, whether you’re a Savvy Sipper, Adventurer or Collector!
Sunday Tasting – Domaine Nicolas Jay
Every October, we love to invite our friend Jay Boberg behind Oregon’s Domaine Nicolas Jay. He has over 30 years under his belt co-founding record labels and launching the careers of famed musical acts like R.E.M. and Mary J. Blige. Now, he’s turned his attention to wine in the Willamette Valley, working alongside his longtime friend and renowned Burgundian winemaker Jean-Nicolas Meo. Jay has immersed himself in the world of viticulture and winemaking, and is deeply involved in every aspect of his winery. He’s also their most committed cellar rat, taking samples, driving the fruit from the vineyards, sorting grapes, doing punch-downs, and whatever else needs doing without ego or reservation. So come taste through his gorgeous Pinots!
