Our winemaking team has been busy processing the fruit coming in as Harvest continues as scheduled. Early Chardonnay grapes were picked and pressed a few weeks ago ready to become part of our 2020 sparkling wine vintage 👏🏼

Why is the “noir” lowercase in this (and only this) vintage of the Beaux Frères Vineyard portfolio?
~~~
Recently, a great friend of ours, Rich Schaefer (thewinewedrink), was enjoying this exact wine and sent along this question. According to Michael “The Dad” Etzel, our founding partner, the answer is shrouded slightly by time, given the nearly twenty years since the one-off decision was made.
~~~
He remembers being momentarily swayed by the rationale of none other than Papa Pinot himself, David Lett, whose eyrievineyards bottles presented (as they still do to this day) what many argue is the accurate grammatical spelling of the varietal. As for why this change only stuck for one vintage, the decision to return to the version we had traditionally used and continue to employ - “Pinot Noir” - seems to have been a purely aesthetic decision.
~~~
While an argument around grammar may be the last thing some of us want to pair with our Pinot, we’d love to hear some perspective from both sides of the aisle. Where does this debate stand today?

Winemaker, Katie Santora and her dog, Mani headed up to walk the Ridgecrest Vineyard this morning and sample some of the ripening fruit. Planted in 1990, Ridgecrest was the first vineyard in what would be the famed Ribbon Ridge AVA. Located in a cooler microclimate, Ridgecrest tends to be about a week later – from bud break through harvest – than our other estate vineyards. It is planted to seven different Pinot Noir clones. The wines from this site tend to be big and brambly, with black-fruit aromas and flavors like blackberry, and black cherry. A wine club favorite, we can’t wait to see what the 2020 vintage brings!

Chehalem's first-ever sparkling wine was tiraged a couple of weeks ago. The process generally takes 3-5 years before disgorging and release, but we are looking forward to joining the sparkling wine game!

Harvest 2020 is starting up, and we want to celebrate that! We are counting down the days until we can begin picking our first grapes destined for our sparkling wines. 🍾

With these unprecedented times, it’s nice to know we’ll still have the #OregonWine we know and love. We will be partnering with some of our neighbors in the following weeks to #CelebrateOregonHarvest and provide food and clothing for families in need. #FeedOregon
