Bells Up Winery: Newburg, Oregon

When Sara Specter reached out to me to encourage me to visit her winery in Newburg, Oregon, I thanked her but truly had no short term plans to taste in Oregon. I was truly focused on my back yard of Napa.

I was bouncing between wineries like a ping pong ball being hit by Forest Gump.

Fast forward a few months later when I am on a press trip of sorts, driving from Napa all the way up to Portland with little time to breathe in between. I was bouncing between wineries like a ping pong ball being hit by Forest Gump. Most of the time I didn’t know exactly where I was because I am not familiar with the area or what is connected to what.

On my way to an appointment, I pass a sign that says “Bells Up Winery”. No way! I’m going to pop by on my way back for the evening and see if I can connect. Who knows. Sometimes serendipity is the magic we need to pay more attention to.

On my way back, I stop in. Look around and then phone the Specters who graciously came out to talk to me and offer a tasting.

It was truly a delight to meet them and see what is happening with what they call their micro-boutique winery at 400 cases in production. The view is stunning. The juice, worth sipping. And the family one of the most gracious and friendly I’ve encountered. Make it a point. PS. Best by appointment. Bells Up Winery

When jet lag hits Porto and collides with a dirty Grey Goose tini up with Nicoise olive and a twist.

Good night.

Self Portrait: Finally changed my profile pic. Removed the one of me at the Eiffel Tower taken on March 12th just before the borders closed in France and the US.

I think the time after the old pic was taken has truly been a time of self reflection.

Each and everyone of us has been through such a crazy year and a half.

I'm grateful for this time since it's given me time to appreciate and spend more time with my family first. And to focus on the friends who truly are part of my life in ways that matter.

It gave me the opportunity to get in the best shape if my life and focus on the things that really matter in this life.

I hope your journey too has been productive, meaningful and takes you where you want to go.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend in moderation, healthy food and great exercise!

To whatever is in your glass! May it be the most delicious sip ever.

Peace✌️And have a fantastic weekend with your loves.
