Summer is here, the wines are lip-smacking great, and we now have an expansive new deck to enjoy our wines, the views, and acoustical music on Thursday from 5:30 to 8:00. The tasting room is open from 11 to 5 every day, and we continue to see new people every day. Being a little further south than most tasting rooms in the Willamette Valley, we offer a relaxed atmosphere where you will be treated to a tasting by the winemaker himself. Wayne loves to share stories and information about the wines that add another dimension to the tasting, and if you want to be seated out on the deck and enjoy the views, he will be happy to pour outside.
We continue to welcome guests from all over the world, as well as Boston, Washington DC, New York, Minneapolis, Colorado, Atlanta and others. We love to hear stories of how our guests first discovered Oregon Pinot Noir, and why they wanted to come to Oregon to taste it in person. They are typically well-traveled and have been to many other wine regions of the world, but find something special in a glass of Pinot Noir from our beloved region.
Our tasting guests enjoy learning more about the growing of the grapes, wine making, and all that goes on at Youngberg Hill. They often request vineyard tours or a barrel tasting to learn more about their favorite wine. We enjoy educating them on everything from geology of the valley, to fruit thinning, to fermentation. Getting the back story enriches the whole experience.
As things heat up, our cool crisp whites are a nice addition to the flight of wines you will enjoy on the Hill. So come join us on the deck, watch the busy birds, the not-so-busy cows, and the beautiful backdrop of mountains as you sip the wines and savor the afternoon.
