Join Carlton Hill Wines for a Tasting in the Barn

"Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine..." 
     Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden    
Dear Friends,   
Does this quote describe our Oregon springs, or what? And, no doubt, if history is any gauge, our day together will produce rain-on-sun or vice versa. The important thing is, winter is behind us and it's time to celebrate its departure!
Join Us for a Memorial Weekend Wine Tasting in the Barn

On Sunday, May 25th, between noon and 5:00, the barn door will open to all aficionados of great Oregon wines. From Carlton Hill you will be treated to a vertical consisting of the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Estate Pinot Noirs as well as the 2011 Estate Reserve.
Chris Berg, the talented producer of both Roots and Racine Wines, will be joining us to pour some of his latest offerings, including his release of the 2011 Roots Pinot Noir from the Carlton Hill Vineyard. Chris & Hilary always have a nice assortment of white wines available, as does John Zelco, who will be pouring his Z'IVO wines. Finally, Travis Cook, owner and winemaker of Copper
Belt Winery, will join us again, pouring his unique Merlot and Syrah blends from his eastern Oregon vineyard.

As for food, count on tastebud delights from Alcyone Cafe & Catering in Salem. Karo Thom has surprises up her chef sleeves this year that are sure to be as hearty and delightful as in previous years. 

There is a $20 tasting fee per person (two people can share 1 glass for $30; Reserve Club members admitted free) and, unless the turnout is ridiculous, a Carlton Hill Vineyard wine glass will be yours for the keeping.

Hope to see you all at the Barn.
For directions, please go to Note that MapQuest, GPS navigators and Google Maps direct people to the nether regions of Carlton. Avoid the navigating mishap by using our online driving directions.

Best regards,

David C. Polite
Carlton Hill Wine Co
PS: If you can't make it out to the farm on Sunday, I will also be pouring my wines at Walnut City WineWorks in McMinnville on Saturday, May 24 between 11:00 AM and 4:00PM.
