We are happy to be recognized by Travel Oregon as Bike Friendly. When you bike to the tasting room in addition to the great wines and views, you can get water, bike pump, some tools, ability to ship your purchases, and in general a fun time.
This week we are seeing part of our annual rainfall being delivered in snow. The last two days has seen over 8 inches of snow come down on the valley. The cold temperatures are ensuring that it is going to stick. So, if you have a snow sled, this is the time to try out some of the hillsides.
The 2011 wines from Saffron Fields are drinking really well right now. These wines will continue to improve over the next several years. Here is the review from Wine Spectator.

For the last 15 years or so Christmas dinner for us is Peking duck at Fung’s Kitchen in Houston. Oregon Pinot Noir pairs perfectly with this meal which is one of my favorite things to eat. Having spent a great deal of time in China over the last decade, I have been able to try most of the famous cuisines of China.
Our Grand Opening Weekend was a great success. Both the Grand Opening Weekend and the weekend after Thanksgiving saw huge crowds. I want to apologize to anyone who did not get the proper attention. Even with the extra help we were a little overwhelmed.
Oregon Wine Press editor Hilary Berg lives close to the vineyard. In this month’s cover story in the Oregon Wine Press titled “Raising the Bar.” She shares her thoughts as she has watched us develop the vineyard and then build the tasting room.
