Sunday, November 17, 2013– Portland, OR– Winemakers and good friends Jesse Skiles and Barnaby Tuttle team up to showcase their new releases and older vintages at Sauvage et Fausse Piste. Barnaby will bust out his schwenker grill one last time this year for Jesse to create a Schwenksgiving turkey special.

This open house will showcase two very different styles of winemaking. Fausse Piste wines focus on Rhone Valley varietals like Syrah, Viognier and Roussillion which Skiles executes with mineral-driven finesse. Teutonic Wine Company on the other hand focuses on cool-climate varietals like Riesling, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which are typical to the Mosel Valley in Germany and Alsace in France. These wines are lean, crisp and come in dry and semi-dry styles.

Thanksgiving is around the corner which means lots of great new Oregon wines will be available to try. While driving out to wine country is a tradition many people look forward to, here’s an opportunity to stay in town and enjoy great food and wine and meet the winemakers. And heck, they will even cook for you!

Sauvage is a restaurant and urban winery where Skiles makes his Fausse Piste wines. It opened one year ago and this is his second vintage making wines in this facility.

A schwenker is a swinging grill that cooks meat over an open flame that uses a pulley system giving once better control over the cooking process. This grill originated in the Mosel Valley and Saarland regions in Germany.
