Women Winemakers

May 2017

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 intriguing blend of Cabernet Franc and Ga may Noir from Leah Jorgensen Cellars and our second is a classic Bordeaux style blend from club favorite Willful Wine.

Our first white is a Melon de Bourgogne from De Ponte Cellars and our second white is a Rose of Pinot Noir (yay for Rose season!) from Bryn Mawr Vineyards

Cheers - and happy Mother's Day!
