Tomorrow is your opportunity to catch a screening of Red, White and Black, a documentary about minority winemakers in Oregon, and to taste the contributor’s wines. The film, directed by Jerry Bell Jr, was the brainchild of Bertony Faustin of Abbey Creek Vineyard and the first recorded black winemaker in the state. Also featured are Remy Drabkin, Andre Mack, Jesus Guillen, and Jarod Sleet, who tell their stories of what it’s like to be a person of color or LGBT in what the film's website describes as a “generally white, high brow industry”.

Doors open at 6:30 pm for a tasting of what should be a good lineup of wines, and after the film there will be a panel Q&A with the director and contributors.
