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?

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

We’re seeing an exceptional amount of site diversity this vintage, with Mother Nature looking poised to deliver a beautiful burst of energy as we approach the finish line. Just about ready to pull the anchors up and set sail on 2020!

Our Virtual Visit tasting package is still one of our favorite ways to share the Beaux Frères portfolio during these unparalleled times. ⁣

Let us introduce you to our most superb Hospitality Coordinator, Rachel Feiner, the resident rockstar of our virtual tasting program. Much like an in-person visit with Rachel at our winery, you never know what sort of creature might make a cameo, whether human or otherwise. Makes for a great gift or an excellent way to kick off a sunny summer evening at home — follow the link in our bio for more details, and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon!

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!

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!

When it comes to the promise of Willamette Valley Chardonnay, consider us among the believers. Dyed in the wool, in fact. We are releasing these two wines into the world this month with great excitement, proudly contributing (we believe) to the rising tide of exquisite Willamette Valley Chardonnay. The renaissance is real, and in the words of our friends walterscottwines, “this is just the beginning.”⁣

Follow the link in our bio for tasting notes and details on getting these two wines in your cellar during our summer offering. Until Monday, purchase any 6+ bottles to receive $20 flat rate shipping via FedEx Priority Overnight delivery. ⁣

Locked and loaded — after countless hours for our production team of tasting, testing, and talking it through, the blends for our 2019 vintage have revealed themselves. These are the staples of our portfolio, under cork for the very first time, just a sneak preview before the barrels are emptied into the blending tank next month.

We remember well the throes of that epic harvest, when we knew that wines of great depth and integrity would emerge if we dug our heels in and did the work. The proof is indeed beginning to emerge!

We recently dug up the manure-filled horns that we buried last fall, the contents of which are used to create BD 501 vineyard prep. A damp June slowed the development of the nutrients, but our recent excavation yielded some rich and potent fertilizer. This will be mixed with water and applied to the vineyard for health and vitality.

A 2020 HARVEST ANNOUNCEMENT // Beginning September 10th, we will be closing and turning the entire Beaux Frères property into a protective bubble for our production team, with our tasting room moving to an off-site locale in downtown McMinnville (more details on that space & experience to come!) and our office staff working from home.
~
There’s nothing we look forward to more than sharing our winery with guests during the harvest weeks, so this was a gut-wrenching decision; ultimately, we knew that the uncommon circumstances we face would require an uncompromising response. We look forward to sharing the story of this vintage with you in fresh and new ways in the weeks ahead — and you are welcome, of course, to come see us for a send off between now and Sept. 10th (make an appointment via link in bio)!
~
In the meantime, we’ll be taking a deep collective breath and getting ready to tackle this vintage like we never have before. Here we go, 2020 — let’s do this!

In the 2014 vintage, we started a tradition of releasing a “super cuvée”, a collection of barrels that reflected the most exquisite expression of the vintage. The Cuvée ’59 became one of the more legendary releases from this winery, and set a very high bar for each subsequent submission in the series, including the newly-released addition from the 2018 vintage, The Giant. ⁣

Given the kindredness of the two vintages, Michael was inspired to take a pen and a pad and pop a Cuvée’59 from his cellar for the first time in a long while. From the notes, an exciting final draft emerged of a wine just starting to hit its stride: ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“Beautiful crimson clarity with just a hint of brick. The wine has lost its baby fat and is now more terroir driven; the smell of earth/soil/iron. Great energy, still youthful but without any sharp edges. Rich yet balanced.”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
For those with a few of these in their cellar, another decade or more of development awaits. As for The Giant, the journey is just beginning, but our high expectations for its potential feel justified. The initial offer ends at midnight tonight; follow the link in our bio for more on the story. ⁣


Wishing all the dads a #HappyFathersDay — we hope you get the chance to open something just as special this evening!

With over a month under our belts now, we’re still deeply humbled by the opportunity to share our wines and our winery with you during this unparalleled season of time. We offer our thanks to those who have come and abided by our abundance of caution, while we also offer our very best regards and understanding to those who are still unable to be with us. It’s a delicate dance, indeed. We hope our wines can remain a source of great joy and comfort in the still uncertain days and weeks ahead — cheers to you all!
