    I love Tempranillo – what a fun event this would be!

    • Nancy Rodriguez January 17, 2018 at 5:13 pm #

      I would like to win tickets and attend the Oregon Tempranillo Alliance Celebration because it encompasses the pioneering spirit of those that pursued their passion and settled in Oregon. It would be an opportunity to witness wine history in the making and in the bottle. A time to taste the vintages that will represent the varietal.

    Tempranillo is my favorite wine variety. This would be my dream!

  7. Perry January 16, 2018 at 12:22 pm #

    My wife and I met and started dating in Madrid. As many of our early dates included Tempranillo and tapas, this would be a great way for us to take things back to our early days of getting to know each other!

  8. Kim January 16, 2018 at 12:23 pm #

    Sounds like a really fun event!

  21. Molly January 16, 2018 at 1:04 pm #

    Who knew there was a whole alliance dedicated to one of my favorite varietals of grape! I looked into the Alliance and saw several wineries I really enjoy are members: Abecela, Raptor Ridge, Stag Hollow, and Troon. I’d love the opportunity to try some new wines and pairings, along with my bestie who could really use a fun outing.

  22. Karla S. January 16, 2018 at 1:19 pm #

    This would be incredible for whoever wins it. When on a limited budget, something like this means a lot. Good luck to everyone!

  23. Julie January 16, 2018 at 1:25 pm #

    This would be an awesome way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

  24. Monica January 16, 2018 at 1:41 pm #

    I don’t mean to “wine”, and I certainly don’t want to lose my tempr(anillo), but I will be so disappointed if I miss this opportunity for so many of my favorite things! The DoubleTree Hilton would be an awesome venue to indulge in this Triple Threat of Tapas, Tempranillo and Tasting glass!

  25. Kate January 16, 2018 at 2:01 pm #

    I haven’t seen another opportunity to taste Oregon Tempranillos side by side. Count me in!

  26. William J Stewart January 16, 2018 at 2:02 pm #

  37. Tom January 16, 2018 at 4:57 pm #

    Tempranillo and Paella are a perfect culinary match. Temp is one of the greatest food wines out there.

  38. Shawnee January 16, 2018 at 5:04 pm #

  42. Kerry January 17, 2018 at 12:37 am #

    A 3 week ramble through Northern Spain to see castles, quaint towns, and soaring peaks, we discovered and fell in love with the tempranillos of the Rioja, Navarra and Ribera del Duero. It would be so much fun to discover and explore the tempranillos in our own back yard!

  43. Valeria January 17, 2018 at 5:47 am #

    My 3 year anniversary is on the 26th. I would love to swoon my boyfriend :)

  48. Cat January 17, 2018 at 1:42 pm #

    I love tempranillo and would jump at the chance to learn about Oregon’s tempranillos. I didn’t realize Oregon winemakers were making tempranillo. Exciting.

  49. Cara January 17, 2018 at 2:52 pm #

    About time there’s a celebration for something other than Pinots!

  50. Brittanie January 17, 2018 at 6:23 pm #

  55. Diane McLaughlin January 18, 2018 at 7:13 am #

    Wine please!

  56. steadytemp January 18, 2018 at 2:41 pm #

  62. Jordan January 18, 2018 at 2:53 pm #

    Have been on a tempranillo kick for the past 3 years – such an underappreciated variety. I am also new to Portland and would be thrilled to interact with other tempranillo / wine enthusiasts!

  63. Karen Gillis January 18, 2018 at 2:54 pm #

    It would be nice to taste them all, side by side. The Spanish varietals have been doing really well in the NW, especially in Southern Oregon. Yes, I would love to attend!

  64. Tracy January 18, 2018 at 2:55 pm #
