It is spring in Oregon…that means little league tournaments in 50 degree weather combined with hail & rain. Many of my friends from across the country think we’re crazy for living here! But we in the wine business know the truth. When we get one sunny day we take advantage of it and we ignore the other days as just being normal weather. And yes- we have great wines to help us ease the pain of living somewhere sunny, warm, crowded and conventional.
We have been working on a blended white wine since early fall & now we have finally released it. Winemaker Josef has put together a crisp, aromatic wine that contains five of the varietals that we grow in our estate vineyards. This lovely combination of Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling with a little bit of Gewurztraminer & Sauvignon Blanc is everything we’ve hoped for. Layers of interesting fruit & evergreen notes on the nose, subtle fruit & smoothness in the mid-palette and a long dry finish. Great for sipping & sharing. It is called “Lilli” and is named for ‘the boss’ and matriarch of the family.
Currently only available in the tasting room & wine club- come on out & try it!
