Sauvage | An Exploration of Oregon Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvage: An Exploration of Sauvignon Blanc

Please Join Us!

Durant Vineyards is collaborating with eleven other Oregon wineries to host Sauvage for the second year. The Sauvignon Blanc-focused event will highlight Oregon’s growing reputation as a producer of high quality Sauvignon Blanc. This year, the event will include a moderated panel discussion held at the Durant Olive Mill in addition to a progressive Sauvignon Blanc tasting at the Durant Winemaking Facility, a space not generally open to the public. Sauvage is part of ongoing statewide celebrations for Oregon Wine Month, which takes place throughout the month of May.
