Have you ever wondered where all those wine descriptions come from? Who comes up with all those adjectives? Well, we’ve wondered that ourselves. So, we thought we’d conduct our own wine tasting and invited a select group of tasters—our friends—to come up with some descriptive terms for our wines.

So, here are the descriptions we’ve put together based on the tasting notes of our friends and customers. If you’d like to send us your own tasting notes for our wines—we prefer positive descriptors of course—we’ll try to incorporate them into our descriptions.

All our wines are available at the winery, vinoshipper, or at the Oregon City, Molalla, Winter Mercado and Moreland Farmers Markets.
