Rosé the Riveter - Release Update!

Rosé the Riveter - Release Update!

The 2016 vintage is aging beautifully, and we are excited to release our first Rosé of Pinot Noir this spring!

We are naming our 2016 Rosé "Riveter" after the World War II icon - Rosie the Riveter. Due to limited production our 2016 Riveter will be available to our Founders Club only - and we're aiming for a Memorial Day (5/29) release!

We are still accepting applications for our Founders Club! Our first 100 members will enjoy a lifetime 30% discount on all wines! After that club membership discounts will be tiered. So be sure to sign up for our Founders Club so you can reserve your bottle of Riveter today!

Many of you have had the opportunity to taste our 2016 Rosé - and it's already become a hit! Aromas of peach, strawberry, and bubblegum compliment smooth acids, and a soft grape tannin.

The skins were cold-soaked for four days to achieve a clear strawberry-pink hue with fruity esters. We then bled off 300L of juice for the fermentation, which lasted for a month and maintained cool temperatures throughout. The yeast, specialized for Rosé, also converted much of the malic acid to provide a round mouth feel.

Our production estimate is approximately 30 cases, which means there will be a six (6) bottle limit. The club price on the Rosé will be $20 per bottle -

We will be contacting club members individually to confirm their pickup starting May 1st. Members can mix and match their pickup while enjoying a 30% discount! Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, or if you would like to reserve your bottles early.

Be sure to come in and taste our 2016 Rosé if you haven't already! Riveter is going to be a hit this summer, and won't last long!

Summer Update!

August 13, 2018 1 Comment

It's been awhile since we've put out an update, things have been busy! We hope everyone is beating the heat right now! Although oppressive, this warm weather is treating the grapes just right. The vines over at Jesse Estate Vineyards recently showed the first signs of veraison - which is when the clusters turn color and the vine pumps them full of sugar. Veraison is the last major step before harvest, based on averages harvest comes 30-45 days after veraison hits. That said, it looks like the 2018 harvest will come in at the end of September! We're looking forward to working with more great fruit from Jesse Estate!


With that, we're happy to share that we are crushing this year at Laurel Ridge winery. We are fortunate that they had space open up at the last second for us to move in to. Interested in participating in a crush? We may need help processing fruit, so if you'd like to get your hands dirty then let us know! Reply back to this email with your contact info and we'll stay in touch!

However - we are not pouring out of their tasting room, instead we are working with Urban Decanter in Forest Grove to pour our wines on Sunday and by appointment. The details have to be finalized with the OLCC, but we should be cleared hot come October.

Spring Update & Moving Sale!

June 21, 2018

You read that right - we are oscar-mike! As many of you know, we have been looking for a new home since ADEA is up for sale. Fortunately, we have found a cellar for the wine, but we're now scouting for our own tasting room. There are options in the pipe - but they're all build to suit, so it may be a few months before its complete.

This means we will be pouring at ADEA for the remaining Saturdays in June, but will be on the move in July. No problem though, we think best on our feet!

So for the summer months we have booked 2 or 3 markets per week - you will find us at any given Hillsboro, Orenco, Beaverton, Bridgeport, or S. Waterfront farmers markets. We will also be making a stop in Sisters and Bend August 23-24. 

Check out our upcoming events calendar here!
