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.

Happy New Year!

We have had such a special 2009 with all our new friends we were blessed to have in our lives.  We wish everyone the happiest 2010 imaginable.

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

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.

The holidays are here!

December 6, 2009

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.

Winter is setting in.

There is something incredibly beautiful to vineyard owners after the leaves fall from the vines.  The view of the bare branches reaching for the sky like fingers of a hand is a tribute to all the work that was done throughout the year.
