North Idaho Enological Society March 2019
March's guest speaker will be Dirk Brink, Winemaker for Basel Cellars in Walla Walla.
Dirk will be presenting wines he has crafted since joining Basel. He studied viticulture and enology in South Africa, and during this time worked at the world renowned Vergelegen and Delheim wine estates. Dirk's first winemaking Internship was at Ingwe Wine Estate in South Africa, and he came to the states in 2004 and started internships with Chateau St. Michelle, Bookwalter and then moved on to Assistant Winemaker at Kestrel Vintners and then Winemaker at Coeur d Alene Cellars before he came to Basel Cellars.
This will be an encore presentation for Dirk. Five years ago, while at Coeur d'Alene Cellars, he gave a presentation to our club on South African wines.
In addition to the April 12th Walk-About, we will have a silent auction.
All proceeds from the silent auction will go to TESH/Project SEARCH, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Project SEARCH is a high school transition program for students with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The program combines classroom time with unpaid workplace internships. Students will spend the school year at Kootenai Health in three internship rotations while taking classes on employability and independent living skills. This combination of instruction and immersion in the workplace setting thoroughly prepares interns to meet any employers expectations and gain competitive employment
To help in our fundraising effort to benefit Project SEARCH, your tax-deductible donation of items for the silent auction would be greatly appreciated!
Acceptable donations include, but are not limited to:
New items valued at $25 or more
