Summer Party Wines

July 2022

The sun is out and it’s time to get outside and celebrate the season. Summertime is why Oregonians suffer the rainy months. There’s no better place on earth than summer in Oregon.

And summertime means easy-drinking white wines and reds that complement whatever you’ve got on the grill. In the lingo of the wine biz, “porch pounders” are uncomplicated wines that go down easy and are affordable. Too often, the mass-market porch pounders are silly, overly sweet, entirely forgettable wines.

But here’s the good news: These days, top winemakers are making high-quality and complex wines that are perfect complements to your summer.

Our reds are deep, dark and luscious – and perfect for anything that comes from your grill. Our first red is a Cabernet Sauvignon from club favorite Jackalope Wine Cellars. Our second red is a lighter style Primitivo from Circadian Cellars.

Our first white is a characterful Pinot Gris from Three Feathers Wines And our second ‘white’ is a Rose blend from Cliff Creek Cellars. Take these wines to your next party and celebrate summertime in Oregon!
