Perfect 10s: A Look Across the Valley and Vintage from Willamette Valley Vineyards
The 10s were 10s they said, somehow, through all of that.    The 2010 vintage in Oregon was tough, it was a year for the birds if you remember, a cool vintage, rainy and then there were those damn birds.  In the Willamette Valley, in 2010 people were a bit ...
The 2010 vintage in Oregon was tough, it was a year for the birds if you remember, a cool vintage, rainy and then there were those damn birds. In the Willamette Valley, in 2010 people were a bit on the nervous side come harvest, but not because of the condition of the fruit, it was damn near ...

Domaine Danielle Laurent: A Love Letter to 2007
When I was roaming the Willamette Valley back in 2010 I had already fallen in love with Oregon's Pinot Noir.  I'd become pretty smitten back in 2005, a few years after moving across the country to the Pacific Northwest and discovering wine. It was in 2010 t...

Don't Sleep on John Grochau and Grochau Cellars
I don't know if Dee Snider is still a live, but come on man. For the love of God, those eyebrows look like hell. The "rockstar winemaker" concept makes me want to vomit in my mouth, by the way. I may be alone at this party, but I doubt it. Unfortunately the...

Knudsen Vineyards: Knowing Your Roots
When listing off the names of the Willamette Valley's wine pioneers one of the names that many consumers don't necessarily recognize is the name Cal Knudsen. Cal, along with Dick Erath went on to found the Knudsen-Erath wine label, but that particular partn...
Cal, along with Dick Erath went on to found the Knudsen-Erath wine label, but that particular partnership stopped producing wines in 1987. Erath, a name we all know, took the winery and Knudsen took the vineyards. After parting ways amicably, Cal Knudsen went on to become a founding partner of ...

Efeste and the Game of Rhones
There is plenty of wine in Westeros. The continent (or perhaps island, frankly I'm not sure) and its inhabitants do plenty of drinking. Particularly Tyrion Lannister, that guy can put it away. The Game of Thrones, unless you've been living under a rock for ...

Can't Knock the Hustle... Jasper Sisco
Jay Z said a lot of things that rhymed in the track Can't Knock the Hustle, but most appropriately he said "I sip wine and spit vintage flows, but y'all don't know... you can't knock the hustle." Justin Paul Russell rhymes with hustle. Coincidence? I don't ...

Forty is the age when men make really bad financial decisions that involve over-priced sports vehicles. I'm not really sure what drives that, I bought an expensive bicycle instead when I turned forty just last year. But what I've found about being forty, (I just turned 41) is that you're only as ...

Taking the Heat: A Look at Oregon's Hot 2015 (So Far)
It's hot man, hot. And even our cool climate Pinot producing region, the Willamette Valley is experiencing a record heat year. While you often hear about how difficult and challenging cooler vintages like 11 or 07 are, a hot, dry vintage like this year can ...
It's hot man, hot. And even our cool climate Pinot producing region, the Willamette Valley is experiencing a record heat year. While you often hear about how difficult and challenging cooler vintages like 11 or 07 are, a hot, dry vintage like this year can be equally vexing.

Wine for the End of the World: Northwest Rosé

Old School; Literally
There are few icons in the Washington wine industry as recognizable is that old schoolhouse that you pass on your way into Walla Walla. The list of easily recognizable visual icons of Washington wine is short and I count them at two. Perhaps only the stone ...
