Portland Monthly: Oregon’s 50 Best Wine 2016

13pnbl10We are thrilled to appear in Portland Monthly’s annual wine edition for the 3rd year in a row. This year our 2013 Pinot Noir Block 10 was featured as #35 of Oregon’s 50 Best Wines of 2016. We only made one barrel of this wine which was sold as part of our Futures sale, and it was sold out before the wine was bottled. All the other Single Block Single Clone style wines are sold as Wine Club Exclusive wines because we make such limited quantities of them. Last year our 2014 Pinot Blanc was featured in their Top 25 wines under $25, and the year before our 2012 Pinot Noir Block 9-115 was #26 of Oregon’s 50 Best Wines of 2014.

#35 2013 Pinot Noir Block 10: “Savory. Bay leaf and tomato. Lime zest and green pepper. Suede. A love-it-or-hate-it wine. Pair with: Tuesday-night pizza”

Oregon’s Willamette Valley: Wine Country Travel Without the Headaches

“Just down the road in Carlton, Equestrian Wine Tours leads vineyard tours from the Wine Country Farm, where later that afternoon I took a ride on Teddy, a well-mannered Tennessee walking horse. Tour company co-owner Jake Price and guide Sarah Ann Hahn, a cowgirl with a self-published gluten-free cookbook, took us to four wineries. The best was Winter’s Hill Vineyard, where our tasting was conducted by winemaker and owner Russell Gladhart.”
