May events

Last week I kicked off May – Oregon wine month – with the Pour Oregon tasting and then I Love Gamay, the first ever celebration of Oregon  Gamay.

Tomorrow I’m releasing new wines for spring at a private tasting in Portland for mailing list members. Here is the tasting menu of new wines:

2015 Vincent Pinot Blanc WV “Tardive”
2015 Vincent Chardonnay WV “Tardive”
2015 Vincent Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills
2015 Vincent Pinot Noir Bjornson Vineyard
2015 Vincent Pinot Noir Silvershot Vineyard (aka Crowley Station)
2015 Vincent Pinot Noir Zenith Vineyard

On Saturday May 20, I’ll be at the winery noon-5pm with John Grochau doing a pre-Memorial Day informal tasting, maybe some barrel samples of 2016 if people are interested. No charge for my tasting

Then Memorial Day weekend we’re open at Grochau Cellars on Saturday/Sunday May 27/28, noon-5pm each day. $15 tasting fee.
