Women In Wine

May 2022

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 a rare treat—a 2013 Pinot Noir from Redman Vineyards. Our second red is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Gamay from Leah Jorgensen Cellars.

Our first white is an unusual white grape traditionally found in France, Auxerrois from long time winery partner Helioterra Wines. Our second white is a Pinot Blanc from Björnson Vineyard.
