Vineyard Manager, Mixed Martial Arts Standout, Mensa Member Recommends Four Vintages

NEW YORK and PORTLAND, Ore., May 7, 2008 – As a professional mixed martial arts fighter and manager of Colene Clemens Vineyard (Ore.), Aaron Stark of Portland knows a thing or two about wines with a little bit of punch that are perfect for Mother’s Day.  Stark, a light heavyweight who will compete next Friday, May 16, at the International Fight League event at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., offers up these knockout choices:

•       Didier Dagenau – this Sauvignon Blanc is the Featherweight of the bunch, very light and perfect for this time of year, and often preferred by women, especially moms

•       Beaux Freres – a Pino Noir from an Oregon vineyard with floral characteristics.  It’s the lightweight of wines, more feminine and fun

•       Soter Vineyards Sparkling Wine – The Jiu-Jitsu of wines, it may look tame but look out for this deceptive vintage that packs a serious sting if you’re not careful

•       JJ Prum – a German Riesling, Mom will enjoy grappling with this exceptionally sweet wine which is still serious and complex
