2016 Three Feathers Pinot Noir in the News
We have been very industrious recently in promoting and selling our 2016 Pinot Noir. Wine merchants in the Portland area have been receptive to our 2016 vintage and we have placed our wine in two shops in the past few weeks.
Last month we hired a long-time friend, Sandra Hogan, to help us with marketing and sales. Sandra has been doing marketing for various small businesses in the Portland area for many years and we hope her experience and pleasant enthusiasm will promote our wine.
In addition, you will be able to taste and purchase our 2016 Three Feathers Pinot Noir at the three wine tasting events below in May and June.
THREE FEATHERS PINOT NOIR MAY & JUNE WINE TASTING EVENTS
Saturday, May 26 from 11am to 4pm
We will be pouring our 2016 Pinot Noir at Lady Hill Winery, St. Paul, Oregon during their Spring Wine Fair. Dan Duryee is the winemaker at Lady Hill and he makes our wine for us. For the first time, we have been invited as a partner winery to pour our Pinot Noir at their beautiful tasting room (Columban Hall) on the site of the historic Owen family farm. This property has been in the family since the pioneer era and is right across the road from the site of the first settlers trading post at Champoeg State Park.
Sunday, May 27 from 1pm to 6pm
Victor and Christine Stimac are hosting a private, invitation only, wine tasting at their home on Chehalem Mountain. At this special event, we will be pouring the 2016 Pinot Noir and also, for the first time, offering a barrel tasting of our 2017 Three Feathers Cuvée Virginia. Guests will be able to purchase the 2016 single-clone Pinot Noir and pre-order the 2017 Cuvée Virginia (scheduled for bottling in August). There is a tasting fee of $10.00 for both wines and the money will be credited towards a purchase of a bottle or case of wine. We are very pleased that Cynthia Stimac, the third of the Three Feathers, will be attending this event from Las Vegas.
Thursday, June 21 from 3pm – 6pm
Sandra and Christine are hosting a tasting at the Northwest Fresh Seafood Company located on 611 N Main Street, Newberg, Oregon. Northwest Fresh Seafood owner, Jason Bryant, features fine Oregon wines in his store and holds these weekly wine tasting events because he enjoys “helping the little guys” like us! He prepares a seafood appetizer that he feels goes well with the wine being served. The event is free and very popular. Northwest Fresh Seafood is the freshest anywhere and the company supplies many local restaurants. Jason tells us that he served our wine for their Mother’s Day meal and everyone loved it.
