March 23rd & March 30th 2024

The library is open! It is time to book your private and semi-private tastings of Carlton Hill Vineyard’s highly prized Pinot Noirs, hosted by owner David Polite on Saturday March 23rd or Saturday March 30th. We invite you and your friends to join us in the cozy barn on the vineyard for a personalized tasting experience.

Beginning with our award winning 2011, we’ll also enjoy the 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 vintages. And to be sure… they are all award winning! These wines reflect the character of the vintage because they are escorted from the vineyard to the bottle with our low intervention winemaking. Our goal is to make clean, age worthy wines that will delight you for years to come. And we’ll prove it at this event.

$40/member, $50 non-members. Eight guests maximum per group. Reservations are at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm. We have Saturday, March 23rd and Saturday, March 30th available.

Dear Friends,

More than once this summer, I greeted guests by saying “Welcome to New Saudi Arabia.” The heat was relentless this summer and in October alone multiple high record temperatures were set. Then it all came to a screeching halt. Three days of fall weather later, we went right into winter. Oh well, maybe fall is overrated. So, let’s take shelter from the storms and raise a glass together to celebrate the season’s bounty. If you do plan make the trip out, please wear warm clothing and appropriate rain gear. The advance forecast looks a little daunting but I just can’t seem to do anything about it.

On Saturday, November 19, between 12:00 and 4:00 pm, the barn doors will open to celebrate and share the tastes of some of Oregon’s finest wines and bounty. From Carlton Hill, the 2020 Estate Pinot Noir, aka PRJ’s Cuvee, shall be making its debut along with our 2018 Estate Pinot Noir. Our 2016 Blanc de Noir, Second Disgorge, will also highlight this year’s celebration.

This year, as in the past, two guest wineries will also be sharing their wines at the Tasting. We are especially pleased to be joined for the first time by the Westrey Wine Company, founded by David Autrey and Amy Wesselman. Truly members of Oregon winemaking royalty, David and Amy have been making great wines now since 1993. From Westrey, you will be treated to five different wines including a Dundee Hills 2016 Pinot Gris and two wines from their Oracle vineyard, a 2013 Pinot Noir and a 2015 Chardonnay.

Not to be outdone, Kevin Green, owner and vintner for La Randonnee and Green Grove Cellars, will be pouring his 2020 Carlton Hill Pinot Noir which was recently named to the Oregon Wine Press November Cellar Select list, one of only four wines earning this distinction. Kevin is also bringing along his 2021 Sauvignon Blanc as well as the La Randonnee sparkling wine Pet-naturel.

Of course, The Barn Tasting would not be complete without 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,

David C. Polite
