Erath winemaker Gary Horner with HoustonWine assistant editor Mary LaGarde

Erath Winery’s winemaker, Gary Horner, introduced his collection of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir wines at Spec’s on April 12th.  Gary explained to the crowd of Houston wine lovers that the Willamette Valley of Oregon has many of the same climate and soil features as the Burgundy region of France.  Gary shared the blending secrets behind his Erath La Nuit Magique pinot noir.  Gary and Dick Erath, former owner of Erath Winery, named this wine after the magic night every person experiences when they are introduced to a classic Willamette Valley pinot noir.  Gary personally blends this very limited wine by tasting and testing blends from hundreds of lots of wine.  Spec’s will receive a limited shipment of La Nuit Magique.  Gary is proud of this very special wine.  Having tasted it, we understand why.  Get a bottle for your own “magic night” experience.
