Gourmet Rosé Foray!
Spring is here and with it comes the new releases of Rosés! These are not the cloyingly sweet White Zinfandels of years past, but delicate, dry, fruity, and juicy wines that celebrate the new season. We tasted through about 30 wines and selected 9 of our local favorites that show how different varietals and varied winemaking techniques can express themselves – four made from Pinot Noir, four from other varietals, and one sparkling wine.

Our Featured Winery of the Month is Walnut City!
Since 1999, Walnut City has been crafting wines in our historic McMinnville winery, formerly the walnut processing facility that inspired our name. Farmers from the beginning, we now manage over 200 acres of vineyards in the Willamette Valley, and have planted, grafted and grown more than a million vines. It’s that deep understanding and constant oversight that allows us to handcraft truly special wines. We believe in where these wines are born and that drives our goal of expressing those origins. Rooted in farming, grown on experience, delivered with heart

The Eighth Annual Winter Wednesday Supper Series was a huge success!
Every Wednesday through the winter was been assigned a theme, and Chef Martin and his staff cooked a menu and pair beverage to that theme, with Martin, Janet and the team joining the party to talk about the food while you eat and drink amongst the valley’s finest.
This year we mixed it up a bit! We tilted toward more thematic dinners to keep us inspired, and to keep you intrigued.
