WARM UP WITH WILLAMETTE VALLEY WINES. 

A year’s harvest is finally in the door, and the vines have released their brilliant leaves as they turn their energy inward. Young wines rest peacefully in barrel; their long slumber of transformation begins, and the promise of vintage 2018 is now safely in the hands of our winemakers.

This is wine country’s coziest time of year. Cool, misty weather brings us indoors to the warmth of intimate tasting rooms, the hushed thrill of that first taste of the new vintage from barrel, opportunities to savor delicious food and wine pairings and the chance to share this moment with the talented makers who can finally catch their breath and embrace the calm of this special season. Get Email Updates.

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?

Excited to be hosting guests for our first curated lunch by Chef Danny with prettyboymiracleclub alongside our enhanced tasting lineup at the blue barn.

This is one of the first fall afternoons we have spent up there and you can already see the leaves around us changing.

It is quite magical. 🍁 🍁 🍁

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

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!
