Great Experience at Winter’s Hill

After the stress and long hours of harvest, I found myself knocked down by the flu last week.  It really made my day to receive this note.

Hi Russell,

I wanted to reach out and tell you about a great experience some coworkers of mine had at Winter’s Hill.

I work for … in downtown Portland. A few of our bosses love wine and are always asking me for recommendations. They were going down to the valley and I recommended they go to a number of wineries including yours. I recounted to them the wonderful experience we had at the IPNC lunch and how much I enjoyed working with you all.

My bosses were able to come by had such a wonderful time! They described the person working the tasting room as very knowledgeable and they helped explain some winemaking to them. Some grapes had recently come in for harvest and they were so excited to see some of the inner workings of grapes coming into the winery. And, of course, they loved the wines. They all left with a few bottles. Overall they just loved how personal the experience was and how genuine everything felt.

So, I wanted to say thank you for what you and your family have created in this wonderful winery. I really enjoyed working with you all at IPNC and I appreciate that you all extend that same genuine experience and hospitality in the every day.

Wishing you are your family a wonderful holiday season,

Megan M.

Thank you Megan, for recommending Winter’s Hill to your friends.  I’m so glad they enjoyed their visit.

Wishing a wonderful holiday season to all,
