One of Oregon’s top wine events is cancelled. McMinnville Food & Wine Classic called off

Just yesterday, I posted an update

on one of Oregon’s top wine tasting events. 

The update:  it was still on. 

That was yesterday.

The 27th annual McMinnville Food & Wine Classic has been cancelled. 

Always a strong draw due in large part to its venue…

the Evergreen Aviation Museum…the event’s fate was sealed

when the state of Oregon decided to ban all gatherings of 250 people or more. 

Event organizers have decided that due to the uncertainty of the current health situation,

they will not reschedule in 2020. 

This is a shame.  I really enjoyed the event last year. 

It was a great opportunity to converse with dozens of winemakers.

  In addition, the event was a major fundraiser

for a pre-school/elementary school in McMinnville. 

But health concerns are priority #1 right now. 

Here’s hoping the event returns in 2021.
