August 2015 023

Many events take place around the state throughout the year. One of those events just happened to be the 29th Anniversary for Laurel Ridge Winery. It is a winery that sits in the heart of Oregon’s wine country.

Over the years they have grown to a wonderful array of wines on their wine list. Everything from sparking wine to port. They pride themselves to having wines that everyone can enjoy and afford.

It is always wonderful to see a business celebrate an anniversary. To hear about the years of hard work it took for them to reach this goal in their life.  To see all the smiles from the accomplishments and hear their stories and laughter.

The Laurel Ridge Winery celebration was fun with BBQ foods, wine and a up close and personal concert. The country duo Lace and Lead from Nashville serenade us with their lovely voices into the night.

It was a fun night for all.

If you would like to join us sometime… Give us a call.

Yesterday was a great day! We had a wine tour with seven wonderful guests. When setting up the wine tour we talked to Dave Walker at Tresori Vineyards. Dave invited us to sample some of Tresori Vineyards delicious Pinot Noir wines.

They were unsure about where to have us sample the wines. The new tasting room is under construction and not ready for this big Memorial Day Weekend winery opening. I told them to put out those signs that we were coming to visit.

With open arms Dave Walker, Joseph and Maureen Longo and the family greeted us. Joseph’s sister Jackie had decorated the building with her wonderful paintings and art. We were lucky to be their first visitors at Tresori Vineyards new tasting room. As we sampled these delicious wines more guests showed up. It was a great time enjoying wine, conversation and the valley view from this soon to be completed tasting room.

Well, we know this is a busy time of year for many of us. There are family members coming and going. Yes, you could be that family member who is doing the traveling. Many of us are looking for things to do, places to go and we are looking for things for our family and guests to enjoy.

For those of us who are here in Oregon we have so many options for things to do and places to go.  We are just coming into the ski season. This means many families who will be heading to Mt. Hood for sledding, snowboarding, skiing and yes, those great snowball fights.

Some of us like the ocean in the winter months for storm watching. Checking out the beaches to see what has washed up on shore. There is something about seeing the waves and to watch the whales swim by.

Others of us like more indoor events like concerts, indoor sports, visiting museum and even wine tasting.

Have you visited Oregon’s vineyards and wineries? Well, this is a great time to visit them. There is so much going on everything from bottling wine to harvesting this years grapes. It is time for our yearly crush.

I can hear you thinking… What does that mean? It means… The grapes are ready to come off the vine and they need to be brought to the wineries. So, the wineries are scrambling to get wine bottled and the equipment ready to process the grapes for fermentation.

As we traveled around Yamhill County’s wine country this week we were lucky enough to get some private tours. We viewed some bottling of wine and were able to see folks harvesting grapes in the vineyard.

Then we viewed the process for the crush where grapes were coming into the winery and prepped for fermentation. Naturally, there was a little wine tasting going on for us as we watched.

We also had a chance to get a private tour in the vineyards from the owner of Methven Family Vineyards and taste some of the grapes right off the vine. Our group found the steps it takes from planting the grapevines to the time of harvest are many and seeing the wine being bottled fascinating.

During our visit we had a greater appreciation for the wine as we did our sampling.

If you are wanting to have a Oregon wine experience give us a call we would be happy to take you on a wine county journey with us.
