Last fall I was in the Willamette Valley, Oregon and I assisted at Day Camp while making my first wine. It is a co-ferment of Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. It was picked from the beautiful Momtazi Vineyard on October 2nd, 2018 and brought into the winery where it was fully sorted and destemmed. It spent 2 weeks on the skins until dry with daily pigeage.
**UPDATE: The wine was bottled on Wednesday 4/24/19! I’m currently re-designing the labels because of a minor setback but all is good since time is in the favor of wine. Still looking at a summer release once we get the wine labeled and ready to sell. Stay tuned to see a list of places you can find the wine.
Check me out at Pleasantry on the 4th Thursday of the month for the rest of the summer as well as a new Basque pop-up "Gilda" @ Aster on 4th featuring pintxos and all the good stuff: txakoli, cidre, sherry, vermouth, etc.
