THERE IS NOTHING LIKE AN OREGON SUMMER!
Yikes, it’s already June and I haven’t even updated our website yet! There is SO MUCH that happens in a gorgeous Oregon summer. So here’s the quick rundown:
June 5th – We start pouring at the Hillsboro Tanasbourne Farmers Market, right next to Whole Foods! This could be dangerous as I know I will be tempted to shop at Whole Foods! The Market is open from 4 – 7 PM.
June 8th – our good friend, Big Ron Sabin is dropping by to play original music. He has a GREAT voice.
June 16th – Big Ron Sabin drops back in ….
Saturdays always finds us at the Beaverton Farmer’s Market from 8 – 1:30 PM and we love that people taste wine that early in the morning! Ditto for the Lake Oswego Farmers Market! My sign that says “It’s 5 0’clock Somewhere” always makes people feel better!
June 21st – A fabulous new event for us that raises money to provide caring baskets for women battling cancer.

THE LATEST NEWS

Jim with the winning wines.
Holly and Jim
We got married in 2006 under a beautiful teahouse that Jim built for us. We've known each other for over 40 years … Holly was a not very good secretary to Jim way back in New York in the television production business. Jim was known as "The Myth" for all he was able to accomplish. He ran a scrappy new company that was involved in such notables as Sesame Street and The Electric Company, many of the Central Park Concerts – from Barbra Streisand to George Shearing. Jim was even business manager for KISS! Holly spent her life raising money for good works and writing.
In 2006, after a lot of life had intervened (ask us, we'll tell you), a mutual friend threw his Cupid's darts and urged us to have lunch. We were both living in the Pacific Northwest by then, although 200 miles apart; Holly - a city girl, Jim - a farm boy. Holly drove down to Oregon, had a lovely lunch, drove home and told Jim he was terrific but geographically undesirable.
Jim was persistent….and, suddenly, there we were standing in a beautiful spot in the Willamette Valley getting married! It really is romantic owning a vineyard! Now we are a wedding destination.
