It's time to start pruning the vineyards to get ready for a new growing season. We are providing the opportunity for 10 people to join Russell Gladhart in our vineyards for a hands on Vineyard Pruning class. Russell will teach and guide as you get to learn a new skill, and be a part of the 2015 vintage. Once the work in the vineyard is done you will be treated to hot soup and delicious Pinot to warm you back up. If interested we will have vine clippings for you to take home for planting at home. Contact Paul 503-864-4538 to reserve your spot (10 people max).

Since we first figured out that grapes can ben turned into wine around 8000 years ago, we have been looking for way to refine and refigure the process to get us closer to perfection. In this class, we will look at some of the most interesting of those discoveries, strides, and happy accidents, with just the right amount of storytelling and wine-tasting to keep it interesting.

The last Saturday in February is now celebrated worldwide as Open That Bottle Night. Give yourself permission to open that most treasured bottle of wine in your cellar. Share the story of that wine with a group of wine lovers who have similarly precious wines to share with you. This night was founded in 2000 by Wall Street Journal Wine writers Dorothy Gaiter and her husband John Brecher as a way to encourage their readers to open those special bottles of wine before they head over the hill. What we love are the stories of these wines – almost – as much as the wines themselves. Preparing a 4 course meal to pair with these special wines is Chef Ryan Childs formerly of Chez Panisse. Ryan has recently moved back to Portland and is creating a menu worthy of these very fine wines. In addition to everyone's special bottles, Winderlea will provide a sneak preview of our estate 2012 wines to pair with dinner. Check out our Wine Journal for more details and list of the wines shared at some previous Open That Bottle Night Events.
Duck Pond's festive annual event features all-you-can-eat fresh-shucked oysters from Dan & Louis Oyster Bar + barbecued oysters from Slick's Big Time BBQ, salmon chowder, bread and desserts. Admission price includes food, two glasses of wine and live music by Echo Park. The event is held in our bottling line/cellar area, so please dress warmly. Reservations required by February 17, but this event always sells out early.
