If you are tasting wine around Oregon these days, it seems the expectation is to pay for a tasting. Here in Elkton, we are still somewhat 'old school' in that we assume you are going to find something you like and buy at least one bottle, so most of us don't really post a tasting fee.Read More
Our blog includes updates from the vineyard and winery, wine features, specials, products and much more. Elkton, Oregon is a special place and we like to brag about it from time to time.
Most wine clubs are designed to reward their fans with substantial discounts, and ours is no exception. Even so, I understand and appreciate anyone looking to shave a few bucks off their regular bills, and I'm here to help you hack your way to spending less to drink excellent wines.Read More
Thanks to all who took the time to fill out our short survey last month! One feature you mentioned wanting to see is recommended wine products. Well Tyler has been playing with the Vivino app and recommends all wine fans/smartphone users to do the same! Review wines, follow wine experts, learn about different wines from around the world, build your own 'cellar' and centralize all your wine notes to one, easy-to-access location.Read More
Dear friends of the Vineyards,
I am happy to report that after a very hot summer, harvest is just a couple weeks away and the grapes are looking beautiful!
We have definitely entered the busy season, as bottling of the 2014 reds is next week as well! This year, we will debut our Legacy Reserve - a beautiful wine that serves as tribute to my late husband, John. We will likely be laying these down for awhile to allow some aging, but look forward to enjoying it in his memory.
This summer was the first time we've rented our Yurt to guests on Airbnb and it has been a tremendous hit! Between July and August, there was only a total of about 10 days the Yurt wasn't occupied. Whether domestic or international all our guests have been extremely complimentary and we're so happy to welcome wonderful people into our world. If ever you need a place to stay, check it out on Airbnb!
Finally, I am very excited to announce the launch of our Wine Club! We are starting off with a 3-bottle and 6-bottle membership level, with generous discounts for both. Last week we made a Facebook announcement and had a pretty phenomenal response! As you know though, we are a small production winery, so we will likely be capping membership and offering a waiting list. It costs nothing to join, so better move fast!
I hope you had a wonderful summer, and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Our Reserve is made from 100% estate grown Pinot Noir. In 2012, a tremendous growing season, we blended equal parts of our two clones, Wadenswil and Pommard, to create this beautifully dark, velvety wine. We've been excited about this particular bottle for awhile now, and it's so nice to receive recognition for a wine we too found special.Read More
