2015 Pinot Gris Released
2015 Pinot Gris
With much anticipation, we are thrilled to announce that we have released our 2015 Pinot Gris. 2015 proved to be a plentiful harvest, providing us with our largest production to date of our Pinot Gris with 380 cases.
With a slighty sweeter taste than the previous vintage, it has classic Pinot Gris colors with pear aromas. Introducing a cupfull of pears with pineapple undertones and a gentle silky aftertaste. This wine is sure to be a crowd pleaser, pairing well with any of your favorite seafood dishes.
Be amongst the first to try this beautiful, refreshing wine by visiting us in our Tasting Room, open daily from 11am to 5pm. Our Tasting fee is $5, and can be waived with the purchase of a bottle of any of our wines.

CAFE Goes Cubanisimo
Tom and Carlee from the Statesman Journal’s C.A.F.E. (Community Arts For Everyone) selected our Monthly Salsa Lesson as their event spotlight for the month of September. They attended the lesson to not only brush up on their Salsa dancing skills, but also to tap into the Cuban culture of Cubanisimo.
After they attended the lesson held on September 26, they wrote a gracious follow up article that was posted on the Statesman Journal’s website, equipped with wonderful photos and a short video. The article also highlighted our resident dance instructor, Debra Seeck (aka Mz. Jitterbug). See the full article by Tom and Carlee here. If you’ve never attended any of our monthly salsa lessons, Memorial Day Weekend Celebrations, or Labor Day Weekend Celebrations, let this article help pursuade you to do so. Debra has a natural gift to dance and instruct.
Our monthly lessons are generally held on the third Saturday of the month, from 5-7pm. Dates may vary, due to previous obligations. Admission costs $15 and includes wine tasting for folks over 21 years of age, the beginner’s dance lesson, and hors d’oeuvres. Wine Club Members pay $10. If you are interested in attending, RSVP’s are required at least 24 hours in advance by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (503) 588-1763. Groups of 5 or more are required to pay in advance.
The next lesson will be held Saturday, November 14. As we close mid December, there will be no lesson that month. Lessons will resume in January 2016.
