Deck The Hills

The Holidays are here, and we are celebrating in true wine-country style.

ChristmasTree

The tasting menu includes some great wines from older vintages such as 2006 and 2008, (check our mobile site for the current flight, and check-in on Facebook or your favorite mobile service for an extra special taste).

We are supporting two very important non-profit organizations this season, and we hope you will join us in our support.

¡Salud! provides healthcare services to seasonal vineyard workers and their families.  Oregon vineyards are extremely labor intensive, and our wines would not be possible without the skilled and hardworking men and women who work in our vineyards.  We thank them for their hard work, and we will be contributing $5 to ¡Salud! for each of our 3-bottle Pinot Noir vertical samplers sold this season.  Enjoy Pinot Noir from 2008, 2009, and 2010 for $99.

We are also supporting ¡Salud! through the Deck The Hills barrel auction.  Winter’s Hill and fifteen other Dundee Hills wineries have created unique pieces of furniture and artwork using retired Pinot noir barrels.  Emily Guzman and her father Randy Hinderer created this wine display with a rotating platform, storage racks for glasses, and a painted top.  It even features interior lights and a bluetooth linked speaker to stream your favorite music.  100% of auction proceeds benefit ¡Salud! .  To place a bid, text salud to 68494 to launch the mobile app on your phone, or register online at http://salud.auction-bid.org  The Winter’s Hill barrel is Lot 208.

Another organization that is very important to Oregon wine is 1000 Friends of Oregon.  We are partnering with them through the Willamette Week Give!Guide to support their tireless efforts to protect farmland and prevent urban sprawl.  Read more here.
