July Featured Winery of is Craft Wine Company!

Craft Wine Company, founded in 2011 by Owner/Winemaker Chad Stock, is a winery
operating in Carlton that is forward-thinking and viciously experimental. They produce three separate labels. Omero produces simple, honest, and traditional wines. Minimus pushes the boundaries of winemaking and viticulture with innovation, experimentation, and research, producing one-off bottlings. Origins was created to isolate and highlight special varietals that also vary every year. “Craft Wine Co. is a concept, a drink tank, a place to voice our convictions and to ask the questions that need to be asked. We’re on a mission to create wine with integrity and bring it to good people everywhere.”

Rose Spring and Summer Fling
Spring into Summer!  Here are 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’ve picked 6 of our local favorites that show how different varietals and varied winemaking techniques can express themselves.

’16 Carlton Hill Vineyard 11/38
Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton
Winemaker David Polite is in no hurry to be the first to market, and this Rosé, which he just released, shows how an extra year can add nuanced elegance

’17 Anne Amie 10/36
Rosé of Pinot Gris Twelve Oaks Chehalem Mtns
While most Pinot Gris is made into white wine, it is in fact a red grape which, when made into a Rosé, results in a rich and fruit cherry bomb

’17 Casasmith 8/29
Rosé Sangiovese “Vino” Washington State
An Italian inspired Rosé of Sangiovese, this wine, made from the warmer climates of Washington, contrasts what a hot weather grape can bring to the table

’17 Illahe 10/36
Tempranillo Rosé Willamette Valley
Hands down the favorite at our staff tasting, this wine shows how a brutally huge grape like Tempranillo can be transformed into a pale pink Rosé that completely belies its origin

’17 J. K. Carriere 12/42
White Pinot Noir “Glass” Willamette Valley
Story has it that winemaker Jim Prosser learned a neat trick in Champagne where they put red Pinot Noir onto Chardonnay lees and the color bleaches out to a delicate salmon hue

’17 Patton Valley Vineyard 10/36
Pinot Noir Rosé Estate Grown Willamette Valley
Widely renowned as one of the best Rosés year after year, this wine is made from an underachieving block of Pinot Noir, and set the standard for how great Rosé should be made in the valley
