I’ve seen the pictures, and heard many of the stories, but it’s hard to truly imagine the realities that David Lett and the other pioneers who followed faced when they boldly ventured into the Willamette Valley with a few grapevines and a vision 50 years ago. Conventional wisdom at the time was that wine grapes [...]

We’re having an unusually warm winter so far here in Oregon – lots of days in the 50s or low 60s, and only a few hard freezes earlier on in the season. While this is quite pleasant and comfortable for us, I’m not sure it’s a positive for the vines. Centuries of Burgundian wisdom holds [...]

Those famous words are from Napoleon Bonaparte in reference to the wonderful beverage we call Champagne. At least he was right about something! A nice bottle definitely made the Oregon Ducks loss in the Nat’l Championship game a little more palatable Monday night. Hell, Champagne makes everything better. That is a sci

We’re entering our 16th year, and it truly just keeps on getting better. I hope you had a wonderful holiday, and wish you all the best for a banner year in 2015. I spent the holidays here at home, thrilled not to have to travel for Christmas. Son Kevin was in from Kona for a [...]

Harvest 2014 is now put to bed, and man, these are going to be lovely wines. Like everyone in the Willamette Valley, we’ve been scrambling for barrels and space to put it all – the rare combination of quality and abundance have us packed to the gills. I’ve been traveling the country since the end [...]

We are deep into it now. The winery is starting to fill up, and we’ll be picking all the rest of our blocks Tuesday through Friday this week, unless the weather does something bizarre and unexpected. So far, the fruit we’ve brought in has been absolutely pristine- there has literally been nothing to remove on [...]

We are getting close. Or at least closer. Took our first samples at Ribbon Ridge this morning – from a flavor perspective I’d guess we’re 10 days or so away yet. Will run numbers in the lab this afternoon – Kelley is getting ready for bottling the 2013s tomorrow… We’re looking at sunny and hi-70s [...]

Every once in a while I get to step back into my former rock & roll life for a few minutes. I spent 30-some years in that world and had a fantastic time. I did it until it wasn’t fun anymore, and stepped away to follow my crazy dream of making wine. It was a [...]

All of us in the wine business know not to count our chickens before they’re hatched, but I can say that we’ve got some nice looking eggs in the nest at this point, and the weather has continues to cooperate. Even though we’ve had a string of days in the high 80s to low 90s, [...]

A perfect first day in Champagne – bright sun, breezy and 70 degrees. What a day to take a walk in the vineyards with Sophie Cossy in Jouy-lès-Reims. Several of her parcels were being plowed by horse today, with her friend Cyril at the reins (he works fulltime for Chartogne-Taillet, and works some vines for [...]

It is stunningly beautiful here in Champagne this morning, birds chirping as I took my morning run through the vineyards, everything lush and green and looking very healthy indeed. I arrived yesterday afternoon in a jet-lagged haze (which only seems to get worse as one gets older, btw) – but after a good 9-hour sleep [...

The first flowers are out – in about 15-20% of the clusters at Ribbon Ridge Vyd., with our other sites about a week behind, I would guess. Weather is ideal for flowering right now, so if it holds we should have everything in bloom over the next week or so. This would put the harvest [...]
