The New Year

January 5, 2010

We are attending the OBBG meeting this week.

We have guest staying with us this week from Philadelphia, Miami, Denver, Los Angeles, and Eugene. It is wonderful having guests stay with us in the “off season” to enjoy the serenity of the Hill.

Vineyard work is progressing well and we will start pruning this weekend. Lots to do. The weather is not too rainy.

We opened up a couple of bottles of 2007s last night. They are developing well in the bottle and opened up well.

Just kidding

This is what our hill looked like LAST year. Thank goodness we are not seeing this weather this year, although the girls wish it were snowing. And they would like a White Christmas. Guess they will just have to watch the movie. Cheers.

Winter

December 22, 2009

What a glorious day it is up here on the Hill. Just finishing a wine tasting and then back into the vineyard.

“Tis the season

December 20, 2009

No not for shopping (yet), for working in the vineyard. The weather is cooperating today to let us stay dry and get more work done before pruning.

The guests just left for the day. We have several wine tasting appointments coming up this afternoon. Unfortunately, the fog has not lifted enough to see our great views. Maybe it will lift later.

Come Celebrate the Holidays with Us!

We had a great Christmas Party for one of our guests last night. A good time was had by all. Next Saturday night is our Holiday Dinner Party. Hope everyone will come join us and celebrate the season.

It is another beautiful day in the Willamette Valley. The weather has been dry and we have gotten a lot of work done in the vineyard.

Cheers!

Atop the Hill

December 2, 2009

This picture was taken a couple of months ago just before harvest. It’s a great birds eye view of Youngberg Hill and all the different aspects. The two big green areas are the Jordan Block (upper left) and Natasha Block (lower middle). To the left is the three year old vines of the Aspen Block (pinot gris). In the left corner between the Jordan and Natasha Blocks is the new planting of Pinot noir (Camelot Block). This is a total of 21 acres. Along the upper right side is the horse pasture, below the red barn.

On top of the hill is the bright green area where weddings are held and the adjoining tents for shade. And of course, on top is the lovely Inn overseeing everything.

Another great day on The Hill.

Getting ready for the big Thanksgiving Weekend.

Great moments!

November 22, 2009

This was a picture taken by a photographer, JOS, at one of our weddings this last summer. It is only one of several spectacular shots he took. We are fortunate to have many great photographers, both professional and amateur, that take great pictures of our site and of the views from our home and Inn. Hope you enjoy them.

Cafe Uncorked

November 20, 2009

We are very excited about the opening of Cafe Uncorked just west of McMinnville on Hwy 18. It is owned by Virginia Murphy, who previously owned Fresh Palate Cafe across the street. Not only is a bigger better space, there is also a wine bar and tasting room to fill the void left by the closing of Oregon Tasting Room. This tasting room will allow many of us wineries in the McMinnville AVA to have our wines available for tasting. Youngberg Hill will be tasting there Thanksgiving weekend as well as at our tasting room up at the vineyard on Youngberg Hill. We are releasing the 2007 vintage Jordan and Natasha Pinot noirs.

Come celebrate with us at both locations.

Cheers!
