Pop-up Tasting Room – 00 Wines!

There’s a raging buzz around Oregon Chardonnay right now. Thanks to a tremendous talent pool of Oregon winemakers leading the charge (plus of course long-time luminaries that have been forging the path for decades), Oregon Chardonnay is seeing its day in the bright spotlight. 00 (Double Zero) has joined the gang with a unique voice, and very high ambitions. These are some of the most dynamic Chardonnays being made in America, full stop! If that wasn’t enough, their Pinot Noirs are also quite stellar. Join us as we help to launch some new wines here at Valley Wine Merchants. You’ll get to meet the folks behind these incredible wines & of course taste the magic.

Launch Party for Crowley Wines!

We decided to throw a party with one of our favorite winemakers in America to launch some new wines. We’re talking about Tyson Crowley and his Crowley wines! You’ll be the first to taste his beautifully made Chardonnay and his delicious Pinot Noirs. Come meet the man himself on the eve of the harvest, and taste through some very exciting wines!

Pop-up Tasting Room : Eisold-Smith Wines

Come & spend an evening with Adam and Lauren who make up Eisold-Smith. Lauren is a vineyard manager/farmer who’s talents in the field are much sought after. Adam is behind the wine making for their project and also lends his skills to exciting projects far and wide. Small lot wines lovingly crafted with a fanatical eye on quality. I’m very excited to help launch their newly released wines here at Valley Wine Merchants. No charge to taste with purchase.

Matzinger-Davies and Mimi Casteel’s Hope Well Pinot Noir

Three incredible winemakers under one roof, behind the bar, one night only! Anna Matzinger & Michael Davies, the duo behind the wonderful Matzinger-Davies wines will be here to pour some new releases. It always a blast having them here, hearing first hand how their wines were made; very special stuff. We’ve invited Mimi Casteel to join the party and to pour her 2016 Hope Well Pinot Noir from her jewel of a vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. If you haven’t met Mimi yet, you’re in for a treat. Please join us for a very special night!

It’s a Sequitur Party!

Four great winemakers, one vineyard in common! Since founding Beaux Freres in the late 80’s, owner & founding winemaker, Mike Etzel, has never wavered from his intense dedication to farming at the highest level. The mantra is simple, great grapes makes great wine, simple as that but rarely carried through with such drive. With the Beaux Freres project on firm footing with Mike Etzel Jr. stepping in as head winemaker two years ago, Mike Sr. started to consider another project. In 2010, Mike and his wife Carey purchased an adjacent piece of land to the estate Upper Terrace & Sequitur was born. Besides Mike’s Sequitur Pinot Noir, there are three other winemakers that were hand selected to buy fruit; Walter Scott Wines, Hundred Suns Wine & Mike Etzel Jr’s project with his brother Jared, Coattails Wine. Come and meet them all & taste their Sequitur Pinot Noir in one place, one night only!
