Women Winemakers

May 2016

There is no doubt that the wine industry has traditionally been dominated by men. But more and more, we're seeing women winemakers and assistant winemakers in Oregon’s wineries -- often with innovative approaches to the business of wine.

Even as they're blazing trails, these women are producing wines that reflect the best of Oregon, whether they're unique blends or creative winemaking styles.

Bottom line? These are great wines that we’re thrilled to feature this month at Cellar 503 as part of our month-long celebration of Mother’s Day.

Our first red is an intruiging blend of Syrah and Viognier from Day Wines and our second is a classic blend, GSM (Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre), from Southern Oregon's EdenVale Winery.

Our first white is a Pinot Blanc from Maysara Winery and our second white is a classic blend of Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier from Portland's own Hip Chicks Do Wine.

Cheers — and happy Mother’s Day!
