Summer Soirée Saturday June 24th

 

Let’s celebrate the longest days of the year at our annual wine club

member party! Stormy Morning Vineyard Estate in Banks, Oregon is the perfect

setting to watch the sunset, sip wine, and enjoy the company of friends.

 

 

At this year’s Summer Soirée, we’ll be treated to a wine and dinner pairing menu with a Caribbean flair prepared by our friend and executive chef Earl Frederick.  Here’s what Earl has dreamed up for us:

Ginger & Garlic Prawn Skewers
Jerk Chicken
Coconut Rice
Summer Grilled Vegetables
Mini-Double Chocolate Decadence

On the entertainment front, we are excited to have Josephine Relli and the Love Fools perform for us.  Josephine is an up and coming singer songwriter whose diverse styles pull influence from the 60’s to modern day.  She is sure to leave you star struck!

This is the third year that we have hosted our annual member party at Stormy Morning Vineyard, and are so grateful and humbled that Bill and Mary Lowblad have opened up their amazing property for Club Cuvée members.  If you haven’t yet attended one of our events at this location, prepare to be wowed!

Pre-Memorial Weekend Case Sale Event

 

On May 20th and 21st We are hosting our annual Pre-Memorial Weekend Case Sale Event at both our Dundee and Underwood locations.  We’ll have food and wine pairings, new releases and 20 to 30% off of any mixed case! We are heading into an incredibly exciting time for our small winery.  On  Pre-Memorial Weekend, we are opening our new tasting room in the Gorge for a special preview weekend before regular summer hours commence in June. After a lot of DIY work, we have transformed a daylight basement into a swanky tasting room, which spills out onto a great lawn offering amazing views of Mt. Hood and our small estate vineyard.  We believe that Underwood is an area of untapped potential for growing cold climate varietals on par with the Willamette Valley (think Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling), and we are really excited about the potential.

Hawkins Cellars Underwood, WA

We will be releasing four new wines that we recently bottled up in Underwood.  To accompany the wines we will have small bites, artisan cheeses and chocolates catered by local market Feast, as well as live music featuring local Underwood musicians. Here’s a bit about the new releases:

2016 Stormy Morning Rosé

This slightly off-dry Rosé of Pinot Noir has slightly less acidity and is a bit sweeter than prior versions.

2016 Barrel Select Viognier

Our signature white wine.  With all those ripe melon characteristics, a wine that screams summer.

2015 Yakima Valley Reserve Syrah

Going out on a limb to say that it might eventually be the best Syrah yet. However, at 100 cases it won’t last long!

2015 Red Mountain Mourvedre

This will be in the June Club shipment, so don’t worry, everyone will have access to this bold red wine.

Underwood Address: 10401 Cook Underwood Road, Underwood, WA  98651

Getting There: From Highway 14, go north on Cook Underwood Road at the White Salmon River.  We are 3.7 miles up Cook Underwood on the right hand side, about 1/4 mile past the intersection with Kollock Knapp Road.

Hawkins Cellars Dundee, OR

In addition to releasing the aforementioned Stormy Morning Rosé, we are happy to announce the release of our 2014 Pinot Noir from the Eola Amity Hills AVA.  While 2014 was one of the hottest years on record, we managed to keep our Pinot nicely in balance, without being jammy and possessing all the earthy characteristics of a great Oregon Pinot Noir.

We’ll be pairing our reds, whites and Rosé with a savory tasting menu:

  • Salmon, Lemon Zest, and Crème Fraîche Tostini
  • Crimini Mushroom Risotto
  • Pulled Pork Sliders
  • Cheeses and Charcuterie
