Back in April, Kole, our wine buyer at the Rock Hill location attended the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Barrel Auction. This very limited, industry only event, exclusively features small lots of inimitable Pinot Noir. Kole was able to win the Siduri auction lot, a super limited 5 case Pinot Noir lot titled, The Stranger! Join us Wednesday Nov. 15th to taste this one of a kind Pinot Noir and other selections from the Siduri portfolio!

Wine Description:
In 1955 Albert Camus wrote about his seminal work, "The Stranger" saying that his hero "is condemned because he does not play the game”. With this wine, Siduri's first from the Zena Crown Vineyard (Zena, meaning "Stranger" in Greek), we have chosen to play no games. Instead we've worked to produce our finest Oregon offering from this remarkable property. With this limited production offering only you can partake in our wonderfully absurd quest to produce some of the finest Pinot noir in the world.

Winery Information: Founded in 1994, Siduri Wines is named after the Babylonian Goddess of Wine. Siduri Wines produces Pinot noirs from Oregon’s Willamette Valley down to the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County. Our portfolio is made up of Single-Vineyard and Appellation Pinots from some of the finest vineyards on the West Coast. Each wine is crafted by winemaker Adam Lee to be a pleasure to drink while also reflecting its unique origins.
