Harvest Celebration

November 17th 1-5pm

On Saturday, November 17, between 1:00 and 5:00 pm, the barn doors will open to celebrate and share the tastes of Oregon’s finest wines and bounty.

From Carlton Hill, 2016 Estate and 2016 Trophy Reserve Pinot Noirs shall be making their debuts. From our library, the 2010 Estate Pinot Noir shall also make an appearance as will our 2017 Rose.

This year, as in years past, we’ll also be joined by three different wine makers who continue to make award-winning wines. John Zelco will be pouring new wines from the prized Z’IVO collection.

As well, we will be joined by Kevin Green, owner and vintner for La Randonnee and Green Grove Cellars who will be pouring his highly acclaimed single vineyard Carlton Hill Pinot Noir as well as his much anticipated release of the 2017 La Randonnee Sauvignon Blanc.

Finally, you will also have the opportunity of tasting the offerings of Genius Loci Wines and winemaker Michael Lundeen. Michael is the head winemaker for Walnut City Wineworks but finds the time to make his own incredible line up of wines. It is rumored he will be pouring a newly released sparkling wine to jazz up the affair.

Of course, The Barn Tasting includes an array of savory foods prepared by Chef Karo Thom. In all, your tasting fee gives you access to more than a dozen pours from a broad array of both white and red varietals, delicious food, and a souvenir wine glass.

There is a $25 tasting fee per person (two people can share 1 glass for $40; Carlton Hill Reserve Club & Cellar Club members admitted free). Hope to see you all at the Barn.

For directions, please go to MapQuest, GPS navigators and Google Maps direct people to a portion of Cummins Road that no longer exists.

Best regards,

Reserve Club Croquet Tournament 2018

Saturday, June 30th Noon – 5 p.m.

Tournament play begins at 1 p.m. Dress – Croquet whites

Please join me for your Members-Only day at Carlton Hill on Saturday, June 30. Play in the croquet tournament (A 2012 Magnum for the winner!) taste and pick up your new 2016 Trophy Reserve, and try our first release of the 2017 Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir. Of course, you will be served a great lunch to be shared among your fellow Reserve Club members.

As for the 2016 Trophy Reserve, it is showing beautifully given its young state. FYI, both the 2014 and 2015 Reserves each earned 92 points from Vinous Magazine which is not a publication known for grade inflation. I expect the same for the 2017. For the actual reviews on the wines from 2014 and 2015, please clink on the link set out below.

While this is a Reserve Club-only event, members should feel free to bring a guest who might make a good addition to the Club. You can let your friends know that they will receive a complimentary bottle of our 2017 Estate Rosé when signing up. Current members who refer them will receive a bottle of one of our hidden gems: the 2011 Whole Cluster Pinot Noir.

Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you’ll be able to attend this year’s celebration (and how many we should expect in your party). Also, if you’d like to participate in the croquet tournament please let us know with your RSVP, as spots on the ladder are limited. The games will begin at 1:00 p.m. sharp! I am truly look forward to seeing you. – David

PS- IF you’d like to join the Reserve Wine Club, email me or give me a call at 503-852-7060 and I’ll get you signed up!
