It is true that our fore-fathers crudely stomped grapes to make their wine. Obviously technology has progressed and we now use big expensive presses to crush our perfectly ripe fruit. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn't have some fun and a little friendly competition (if you choose to take part in our Stomp Competition) at our fifth annual Crush Party!
When: September 27th
Time: Noon to 4pm
Our fifth annual Crush Party is just four weeks away! We always have a blast at this party and enjoy celebrating all things harvest with you, we decided to throw the party again!
Compete in the grape stomp competition, listen to bluegrass from GTM String Band, go on a vineyard tour via hay ride (weather permitting), drink freshly pressed grape juice and enjoy the fruits of our labor from years past (aka wine!) and BBQ from The Meating Place. Below is the schedule for the day, rain or shine:
12:00 - GTM String Band begins to play and the first vineyard tours departs from the tasting room.
12:30 - Grape stomp heats begin
1:00 - Second hayride vineyard tour departs
2:30 - Grape stomp semi-finals begin
3:00 - Grape stomp championship
4:00 - Festivities wrap up
For more information, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call 503.359.5012 x 106.
Hope to see you there!
This week we are all about Riesling and the amazing versitility that this grape offers. But this also can lead to confusion and sometimes result in people overlooking the varietal as a whole.
Here are our 4 wines with Riesling components place on the International Riesling Scale - a international method used to compare the perceived sweetness of Riesling, using the Acid, pH and Residual sugar in the finished wine. And to break down some basic Riesling food pairings, we have used the same scale to show traditional foods for each section of wine.
We think a bottle of wine is at its best when shared with friends and family, paired with great food and good conversation around a table. Thanksgiving may the one holiday that finds almost all of us, on the same day, enjoying a holiday feast around a table. And while it may still be three weeks away, we're already planning our holiday meals. Because we have menu fever, it feels only appropriate to focus on food this week. In preparation for the holiday, we are offering you a 20% discount on a 6 bottle purchase of any and all our favorite Holiday Pairing wines - Gewürztraminer, Reserve Pinot Gris, Borealis, Pinot Rosé, and "Red Cap" Pinot Noir.

Although the weather was a bit more blustery than we had anticipated, it in no way dampened the fun that we had on Saturday. We were pleased to see so many people out to celebrate the start of our Harvest, the release of the 2012 "Red Cap" Pinot Noir and, of course, to stomp their hearts out.

Sunday heralded the first official day of fall, which for many of us around the winery is our favorite season for a variety of reasons - crisp fall mornings, the colors of the leaves, fall holidays spent with friends and family, and, of course, bringing in grapes for harvest!
And although we are more than happy to see the fall is here, it is with a bit of sadness that we say goodbye to summer. As a farewell to this lovely past summer, we are offering you 25% off our absolute favorite summer wine, Rosé.
