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

How do you celebrate 50 years of making incredible wine? With a party worthy of just that. The Soirée Blanc was the perfect occasion to mark the occasion on the 50th Anniversary of @chalkhillestate . This iconic property held the event at the highest point known as Ridge Top straddling the Mayacama Mountains while overlooking Alexander Valley.

Chalk Hill is in the Chalk Hill AVA with 1300 acres, 300 of which are under vine and certified sustainable. The celebration introduced three new Chardonnay’s, Little Patch Chardonnay and Carol Ann Oak Hill Chardonnay, and after a 10 year absence it marked the return of the exquisite Founder’s Block Chardonnay. Founders Block is made from the very first 11 acres of Chardonnay planted on the estate.

Chalk Hill Estate features an equestrian pavilion, a four acre organic culinary garden and a hospitality center.

This event is part of a year long celebration.

Happy 50th Chalk Hill! Thanks for the amazing wine and the memorable time!

Oakville. Land of vast expanses of vineyards, dotted with dust, flecks of gold on the horizon and crystal clear blue skies.
