The days are long but the years are short, might as well enjoy a nice glass of wine. Lately I’ve been enjoying this Rose from stollerwine! After the babes are in bed I like to pretend I’m actually at the vineyards instead of tripping over Hot Wheels as I make my way to collapse on the couch. Thank you so much #stollerwines for providing me a mini-escape back to Oregon (especially since I was pregnant when I was there and couldn’t partake).

"This was the first year that we had a team of all interns from the United States. The five of them ranged in experience and background. Coming together during a pandemic and getting through harvest was challenging but we had the right team for the job. 2020 will be one for the books. Cheers to our Harvest Team!" - Katie Santora, Winemaker. Learn more about our interns - follow the 🔗 in profile!

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

Happy wine Wednesday wine lovers!

We continue to introduce Oregon wine to you. The wine of the day is viognier we discovered on our most recent visit to Willamette Valley winery Dominio IV

Viognier Still Life 2019 by dominio4 reflects the winemaker's artistic personality. Patrick Reuter, the winemaker, and the co-owner of Dominio IV, not just makes wines, but designs labels for each bottle as well. 

"Still Life" 2019 is made with the Viognier grapes sourced from Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley. It was aged in 100% neutral barrels.
Typically, we taste the wine first and later check the back label for the winemaker's wine notes. We were surprised how close our description was to what we read on the label.
We sensed the aromas of tropical fruits, lemon flesh, white flowers, and apricot skin. On the palate, it's dominated by peach, orange, and lemon.
"Still Life" Viognier has a substantial body, higher acidity than we expected, and an orange aftertaste. 

The orange-like profile of "Still Life" calls for appetizers and salads with oranges, tomatoes, and parsley. And we paired it with fish dish accompanied with parsley (see the previous post)

Let’s raise a glass to Friday, shall we?! ⠀⠀
This weekend is going to be a busy one in the Willamette Valley, jam-packed with tons of fun Pre-Thanksgiving events and opportunities to stock up on wine for the holidays. I’m having a hard time narrowing down the list of events I want to attend, though these are my top contenders:
⠀⠀
• Flâneur Thanksgiving Wines, Saturday & Sunday 11-4 at the Grain Elevator. Flâneur will be pouring their ‘16 Couvee Constantin Pinot Noir (and others), which was named one of the best wines for Thanksgiving by foodandwine Magazine. Entry is $30, or complimentary for club members.
⠀⠀
• Beauxfreres Pre-Thanksgiving Open House, Saturday from 10 to 3. This annual event is a rare opportunity to drop in to the normally by appointment only winery, and one of the only times that you can also taste sequiturwine & coattailswine at Beaux Fréres. $25, complimentary for club members.
⠀⠀
• delancellottiwines Pre-Thanksgiving Open House Friday & Saturday 11-4, pouring new releases. $30, free for club members.
⠀⠀
• hundredsunswine Fall Tasting, Saturday 12-3 at their winery - Gamay, Grenache, and hats!
⠀⠀
Are you headed to any fun events this weekend, in the Willamette Valley or elsewhere?
