Jasper Hill Tasting With Ron Laugton


Jasper Hill – the prestigious winery created by Ron and Eva Laughton in 1982 – has built a formidable reputation in just three decades.

Their wines are organic and biodynamic; they employ minimal intervention practices and even produce their own compost! They have never used synthetic chemicals on either the vines or the soil, and they only use the grapes from their own vineyard, so you really have a notion of the “terroir” in their wine.

To celebrate their journey, taste some incredible wines and see what’s coming for the future The Oak Barrel will be hosting a Jasper Hill tasting this November.

Ron will be hosting this event and introducing his wines. This is also a rare opportunity to try a few old vintages of their phenomenal whites and reds. I guarantee you won’t be bored – Ron likes to chat!
