Amigas today we are featuring Christina Gonzales owner and winemaker of gonzaleswinecompany 🚺 Christina is based in📍Oregon 🇺🇸. She is fearless leader, ❝the granddaughter of migrant farm workers from Texas who moved to Wisconsin in search of a better life. In 2001, while backpacking through Argentina, Cristina fell in love with the grape, Malbec. She returned to the United States and spent a decade learning the winemaking craft through hands-on experience of internships and wine production positions around California, Oregon, Tasmania, and Australia. Cristina founded Gonzales Wine Company in 2010 to celebrate the inspiration behind that first glass of Argentinian Malbec. Her approach to winemaking centers around an appreciation for the vineyard stewards tending the vines, respect for the land, a minimalist approach, and the beauty of her Mexican heritage.

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 👏🏼

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). Want a mini getaway to the vineyards from your living room? Use code STOLLER to save 15% #drinkstoller #wvwines #oregonwine ...

"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!

I’ve completely eliminated drinking wine during the week, so come Thursday, I’m excited to pick out my weekend bottle. Tomorrow I’ll be sipping on this 2015 L’Altra Linea Dundee Hills Pinot Noir from furiosovineyard. I picked this up in the tasting room over a year ago so my memory is foggy on the details and notes, but I must have liked it to bring it home!🤷‍♀️🍷

Tell me what you plan to open this weekend! ⬇️

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!

ABOUT THE ARTIST

For more than a decade, the Willamette Valley Wineries Association has been honored to work with Portland-based artist John Fisher for original Memorial Weekend in Wine Country art.

John pairs his artistic vision with years of graphic design experience to create inspiring, sophisticated landscapes and figurative work. His landscapes have a definitive sense of place, allowing you to feel the emotion and mood of the day with his intuitive use of color and brushwork. The shifting force of weather has a profound impact on his work and ability to capture the soul of the Pacific Northwest landscape. John is an art director and designer in Portland, Oregon, originally hailing from Omaha, Nebraska. A graduate of the University of Kansas Fine Art program, he developed a passion for landscape painting while exploring the back roads and open plains of the Midwest. When not in the studio designing, he is likely to be roaming the countryside, capturing Northwest landscapes on canvas.

We asked winemakers for their stories from self-isolation, special offers, virtual events, favorite wine podcasts, quarantine jams, and charitable partnerships, and we gathered them all to create our #WVCommunity center.
