The 2014 Vintage is Patricia Green Cellars 15th Anniversary Wines
The entire winery is dedicated fully and solely to displaying the nature of Pinot Noir that is derived from where it is grown. In each vineyard a unique combination of geology, topography, elevation, aspect to the sun, degree of slope, type of water, age of vine, clonal material, flora and fauna that come together to make up the concept that is referred to as terroir. All our vineyards are either organically or sustainably farmed to produce textures, aromatics and flavors that are specific to the site from which they are born. Our goal is to work with unique vineyards that have wide ranging natures so that we can showcase a broad range of Oregon Pinot Noir capabilities.
Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge Appellation of the Willamette Valley on a 52 acre estate purchased in 2000 by Patty Green and Jim Anderson. The winery, and thus the two friends and business partners, are noted for producing a tremendously broad selection of Pinot Noirs from several vineyards representing some of the better sites in the Willamette Valley with a particular emphasis over the years on Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills and the Chehalem Mountain appellations. Patricia Green cellars focus is to produce Pinot Noirs that show the distinct characteristics of the sites and vintage within the context of the wines.
- Pre-Thanksgiving Day Weekend: Saturday & Sunday November 21st & 22nd: The single best weekend for Pinot Noir freaks such as yourselves. This is also the best weekend to pick up the 2014 PINOT NOIR FUTURES you purchased earlier this year. Please, if you bought futures and if at all possible, come pick them up this weekend. It makes everyone happier. Also it is great to taste the new releases because we do not advertise this so the only way to know about it is through our limited circulation newsletter, so the crowds aren’t so bad. We have a great spread of food and we open everything. Well, everything that is left for as long as that lasts. That will mean 14-16 Pinot Noirs to start the day on Saturday. This is really an amazing array of textures and the nuances that make Pinot Noir wines. If you are passionate about terroir, then you should not miss this. What’s in it for you? Show up, have a great time, leave with a trunk-load of wine. Pretty fair deal.
- Thanksgiving Weekend: Friday & Saturday November 27th and 28th only: If you can’t make Pre-Thanksgiving Weekend there is still salvation. Some of the wines will have disappeared but there are still plenty to choose from and there’s great cheese, dried meats and nuts too. It can get crowded but we keep things pleasant as best we can and we’ll definitely make sure that the check out lines move as quickly as possible. There will be a tasting fee of $25 for non-club members. The hours are our standard, opening at 10:00AM and closing at 3:00PM.
