Re: Walter Scott Wolfpack

Here are a few points to address all of this. 1. This has nothing to do with the Wolfpack. We needed to change our release schedule. We have been releasing 6 wines in the fall and close to 12 in the spring. We have huge cash hits 2 times a year and needed them spread out. We also wanted to allow peo...

Re: Willamette wineries to visit in October???

Marcus, we though, was calling our next two appointments: Walter Scott and Cristom. But, when we arrived at Walter Scott, we were (probably justifiably) greeted by a decidely annoyed winemaker who said we were an hour late and to come back "next time." (There is not likely to be a next time, sadly)...

Dipping our toes in Oregon Pinot (not literally)

Thank you all for this feedback! It really helps having this view point from all of you. I have one more follow up question for all of you who do know us and have visited in the past and become supporters of ours... When you visited originally we did not charge for tastings, or charged quite a bit l...

Thank you all for your feed back and thoughtful perspective. I appreciate having an opportunity to have this discussion within this community of highly engaged consumers and many small producers who share similar challenges to us.

Why is Oregon chardonnay so expensive?

Greg, a big factor in price with reds vs whites is labor. Chardonnay comes in, gets pressed, maybe settled overnight then either ferments in tank or in barrel with little human effort. Reds will get two, maybe three, pumpovers or punchdowns a day for two weeks, then maybe one a day for extended mac...

Neal Martin's WA Oregon Report, your thoughts?

I found his report refreshing. While I didn't agree with all of his reviews (Matello/Goodfellow in particular) or all of his opinions (his dismissal of Oregon Riesling), it was wonderful to see that he was willing to state how he really felt. It is very frustrating to read other publications and see...

A Few Oregon Chardonnays

Looking forward to my vacation in Oregon next month combining camping with of course some wine tasting and a tour at St. Innocent. Glenn, when you are in Oregon you should come by, we are right around the corner from St Innocent and we can barrel taste the 2012 Pinot & Chardonnays. Erica Walter Scott
