In case you haven’t heard, i finally nailed my dream part-time job. I work at Cardwell Hill Cellars just north of Philomath! Yipee! I get to work my customer service skills, dish about delicious wine, enjoy working in a beautiful setting AND i get to handle all their social media/bloggy stuff, which obviously i enjoy doing. I’m pretty stoked about my new gig, and i’m even more stoked about our big event this weekend. It’s Memorial Day Open House weekend!
Cardwell Hill Cellars is a family owned Oregon boutique winery producing over 5000 cases per year. They use sustainable agriculture practices to achieve premium quality fruit and produce award winning wines. You can read lots more about the Chapels, their vineyard, their wine and news and events at their website and of course, on Facebook. If you happen to be in the area on Mondays or Saturdays, PLEASE stop in and say hello to me. If you stop in any other day, be sure and tell Nancy, Dan or Scott that Miranda sent you.
This weekend is a big weekend for a lot of local wineries. I’ll be doing some wine tasting myself on Monday and plan on stopping by my winery, Lumos and Harris Bridge wineries. I’m totally excited to TASTE and not just pour. You can find many more wineries open for the weekend by visiting the Heart of Willamette‘s Facebook page to see who will be opening their doors.
Cardwell Hill Cellars are known for their Pinot Noir, but we also have some really awesome white wines from a very dry rose that is absolutely to die for, a pinot gris and a “Blanc de Noir” which is a white wine made from the red Pinot Noir grapes. It is the most beautiful color of slight blush, and is just a hint sweet. Cardwell Hill Cellars makes their wine only from their grapes and completes the entire process from harvest to bottling on site. Cardwell isn’t just a boutique winery, it’s a family run winery that makes stellar AWARD WINNING wine. Come on out and see what it’s all about!
I hope to see you this weekend!
