Lingua Franca, The Oregon Gem
Lingua Franca is the brainchild of Master Sommelier Larry Stone, nestled in the heart of the Eola-Amity Hills. Stone made history by becoming the first American to clinch the prestigious Grand Prix de Sopexa for the title of Best International Sommelier in French Wines in Paris, a remarkable feat achieved within mere months of attaining the esteemed status of America’s 9th Master Sommelier. His journey led him to Chicago, where he contributed his expertise at the Ritz Carlton at Watertower, spearheaded the opening of the Four Seasons Hotel at 900 N. Michigan, and eventually assumed the roles of General Manager and Sommelier at Charlie Trotter’s Restaurant. Beyond merely a venture, Lingua Franca represents the culmination of Stone’s illustrious career in the world of wine, intertwined with his personal vineyard endeavors. Notably, he enlisted the esteemed Burgundy winemaker Dominique Lafon to oversee winemaking operations for Lingua Franca.
Tonight we will taste his most important wines, several Chardonnay'a and Pinot Noirs, a tasting not to be missed.
