Holiday Wines

December 2022

This month officially marks Cellar 503’s eighth anniversary. I am so thrilled with the warm welcome we continue to receive from the Oregon wine industry and the support that all our members continue to show us. My dream of sharing unique, hand-crafted wines from small wineries all over the state has really become a reality.

There’s no question that the holiday season is upon us and I don’t know about you, but I am incredibly grateful that this year’s celebrations will be a bit more normal. Whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Festivus, or a bit of all four, I hope you are looking forward to seeing friends and family.

Whatever your holidays look like this year, we’ve chosen some spectacular wines that we hope will bring a little joy to your home during the season of lights.

Our first red is a club favorite from last year—Cabernet Sauvignon from Watermill Winery in Eastern Oregon. Our second red is a unique chance to taste a wine from 2017—a Syrah from Southern Oregon’s Quady North.

Our first white is a luscious Gruner Veltliner from Chris James Cellars. And our second white is a Sauvignon Blanc from La Randonnee.

Happy Holidays!
