Guest Winemaker: David Ulbricht of SchoneTal Cellars

We recently had the opportunity to taste David’s wines over a fun dinner with friends and immediately asked if he would be a Guest Winemaker. His tiny production Pinot Noirs are spectacular - all made from Pommard fruit from some of the Valley’s top vineyards.

In David’s words: “SchöneTal Cellars pays tribute to our family's German heritage and our journey here to the Willamette Valley. After my wife and I married we settled down in McMinnville, Oregon where we had four beautiful children. Our life has blossomed here, for many reasons, but the wholesome people, captivating landscapes and the undeniable culture of wine and food is what's kept us here for so many years.

My love for wine-making initially started when I began volunteering my time during harvest. The cold brisk mornings and the purple stains on my hands never seemed to last quite long enough, and in 2014 I managed to source some of the best Pinot Noir grapes in the northwest and SchöneTal Cellars finally came to life.

Our approach to wine-making is simple, fermentation occurs naturally in nature and that's exactly how we keep it in the cellar. We believe in allowing our grapes to express their true eloquence by naturally undergoing fermentation without any manipulation. Letting the grapes reveal their natural beauty and balance from the surrounding terroir is what makes our wines recognizable.”

Guest Winemaker: Jason Gersing, Gersing Cellars

Guest Winemaker: Jason Gersing, Gersing Cellars

Composing Vinous Harmony!

Jason Gersing has two great passions: jazz and wine. The music bug struck early. Not long after Jason picked up the saxophone in 6th grade was he transcribing "Cannonball" Adderley and Sonny Stitt, and he continued to study throughout high school and college. Jason then moved to New York to study and play with some of the best jazz musicians in the world.

Of course, musicians need a day job (sometimes two!) to support their jazz habit. One such job was working harvest at Bedell Cellars on Long Island. Jason had been bitten by the wine bug while studying in Italy, but experiencing crush deepened his fascination with the winemaking process.

Jason spent the next three years exploring the wine regions of France and Italy and studied Enology and Viticulture at Montpellier Supagro in the south of France. Missing the U.S. but wanting a new American experience, Jason moved to Portland, Oregon. After taking Business courses at Portland State University and Enology and Viticulture courses at Chemeketa Community College, Jason joined Argyle Winery where he was in charge of production planning and inventory management, though he participated in almost every facet of the operation. At Argyle, Jason gained not only a unique education in sparkling wine production but also a broad overview of a complex and growing wine company.

When not in the cellar or the vineyard, "Goose" can probably be found either listening to live jazz or playing saxophone with one of several Portland-based groups.

Oh, we should mention that Gersing Cellars was listed as one of the "10 Best Urban Wineries in the Country" by Food and Wine!

Today’s tasting includes wines from both Gersing and Anam Cara.

Matzinger Davies: Today's Guest Winemakers

Delighted that Anna Matzinger of Matzinger Davies - one of Oregon's top cult wineries - accepted our invitation to return as our guest today.

Anna spent the last 14 years working for Archery Summit where she rose to winemaker and co-general manager and helped lead the organization to the place it now holds as a premier producer of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. While there she worked to articulate the unique style, personality and distinction of the Estate vineyards, garnered numerous accolades and helped steward and nurture both winery and brand in its growth as a producer of world class wines.

Michael Davies, a New Zealander by birth (and inclination) is the winemaker for both REXHILL Vineyards and A to Z Wineworks. He has held this position since 2006 and brings to it his unique form of intensity, precision and sincerity. Prior to that he managed the vineyards and assisted in winemaking for five years at Chehalem winery after completing a post graduate diploma from Lincoln University and gaining experience through numerous vintages in both Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

They established the Matzinger Davies Wine Company in 2006 with the intention of producing wines with a resonant voice speaking to their geographic origin, varietal typicity and season. Authenticity, vibrancy and integrity should be their calling cards. 

One flight includes the wines of both Matzinger Davies, and Anam Cara. $15 tasting waived with two-bottle purchase. Complimentary for Club Members.

Artist Reception: Catalina Gareton

1:00 PM13:00

Artist Reception: Catalina Gareton

Meet artist Catalina Garretón and view her stunning pieces at our tasting room. Catalina is an internationally recognized Chilean-American abstract painter and textile designer. Born in Seattle and learning to paint there and later in Spartanburg, South Carolina (accent on request), painting was always a necessary habit. After earning a BFA in Painting and a Minor in Journalism from UNC-Chapel Hill, Catalina focused her artist eye as a photojournalist in Santiago, Chile before landing in colorful San Francisco. There, Catalina continued to paint and had her first studio in the Mission District. She pursued a career in marketing and working under incredible mentors for both start-up and public companies with clients such as Marriott, Nike, Lionsgate Films, Summit Entertainment and National Geographic. It was during this chapter that Catalina began showing and creating more and more, and eventually launched her own venture, Catalina Garreton Art + Design, which took her to teach art and exhibit in Barcelona, Colorado, Los Angeles and now a return to the Pacific Northwest in Portland, Oregon.

Artist Statement:
Born to an interior designer and director of photography, I declared at age 4 that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. I learned at a very young age that I could make things with my two hands that brought joy and created connection to others--and I haven't wanted to stop since that day. I also believe in making bold moves, on and off the canvas. In 2014, I circumnavigated the globe: I taught classes and exhibited in Barcelona, created commission paintings in Singapore, studied batik in Bali, found inspiration from both the aboriginal and contemporary conceptual artists of Australia, and connected with my artist tribe in Chile. This world has so many incredible corners; connecting with people in all walks keeps me inspired every day. I find inspiration and pattern constantly in nature; I also love the structure and patterns found in our urban spaces and my pieces tend to dance with both of these themes. I adore and respect so many places in the world, and the gratitude I have for living each day is at the base of everything I do. My proudest work is creating commissions that help remind people of and take pride in their uniqueness, their sacred memories and values. I believe we are here for a short time and that it deserves to be celebrated.

Guest Winemaker: Harry Peterson-Nedry, RR Wines
Feb

11:00 AM11:00

Guest Winemaker: Harry Peterson-Nedry, RR Wines

Postponed from our usual second Saturday spot, our Guest Winemaker today is Oregon wine statesman Harry Peterson-Nedry of RR wines. Harry and his daughter, Wynne, are crafting benchmark Pinot Noirs and Rieslings from their 120 acre Ridgecrest Vineyards estate which contains the oldest plantings on Ribbon Ridge. They are not designed for a mass market, but for serious aging and for understanding the potential of this special land mass called Ribbon Ridge. Their concentration, their blackness, their elegance, their textural excitement all stem from the vineyard—its maturity; deep penetration of dry-farmed vines to find rock, nutrients and water; organic farming; limited yield and sensitive fermentation to protect vintage characteristics.

Join Harry for a rare opportunity to sample and acquire these remarkable wines including a pre-release of the 2016 RR Pinot Noir.

Today’s flight will include wines from both wineries, and is complimentary for Wine Club members.

11:00 AM11:00

Guest Winemaker: Willy Gianopulos, Freja

No one ever said winemakeing was easy! Meet hands on winemaker Willy Gianopulos of Freja in the Chehalem Mountains. 

The name Freja is both a tribute to both the majestic Burgundy region of France where great Pinot Noir has its origins and to the Scandinavian nomads who first settled this area.

In Norse mythology, Freja is a goddess of love and fertility, the patron of crops and birth, the symbol of sensuality. Freja is peacemaker and the bride of fallen heroes. At times she rode Odin’s famous horse Sleipner (depicted on the front label). In Teutonic mythology, she was fused with the goddess Frigg. Friday is named for her.

So, do Willy's Pinots match up? Join us and samples these extraordinary wines for yourself. The $15 tasting includes wines from both Anam Cara and Freja.
