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!

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.

are sure to be as hearty and delightful as in previous years.
