Directions

We are located outside the small towns of Cornelius and Forest Grove, Oregon. If you decide to get directions from the web, we've discovered that most of the sites include a road that is closed: LaFollette Road. Just stay on 10th Avenue to Blooming Fern Hill Road and turn right. Stay on that to the flashing yellow light and turn left onto Hergert Road. A Blooming Hill Vineyard is the first driveway on the right. There's a big sign.

HOW TO REACH US WHEN IT RAINS ALOT!

We do live in Oregon where rain is a factor….In case the route to A Blooming Hill from Highway 47 is closed at Fern Hill, just stay on Hway 47 to Route 8, which is the next major intersection.  Turn right.  You will go into Cornelius and begin to see Blue Signs to A Blooming Hill.  Just follow the signs….for sticklers, turn right onto 10th Avenue, turn right onto Blooming Fern Hill Road, turn left at the flashing yellow light and we are the first driveway on the right.

She Married Into Wine

Holly in interviewed on Northwest Wine Night Radio

December 2018

We have the most interesting Wine Club members…seriously…you are from so many different places from New York to Oregon and you are all involved in such interesting activities and careers.  Really, everything from optometry to manufacturing batting machines to teaching to healthcare to all the service industries to high tech entrepreneurial companies to ginger candy to art to music and on and on and on.  And just this past weekend we added our first Ice Dancing champion who is now a coach  and choreographer.  Here’s a link to Neale Smull dancing on ice to George Gershwin.  I’m thinking we might have to put in a rink!   And maybe a batting machine!

Life is good.  December is always joyous in the Tasting Room with Chanukah starting on December 2nd, Christmas on the 25th, Kwanzaa beginning on December 26th and my son’s 45th birthday on December 13th!  Happy Birthday, Charlie! 

We are kicking off the month at a great community event.  I have crazily signed up to pour at the HOLLY DAYS Artisan Market in Hillsboro this Saturday.  Come out and see how bundled up I can be and still pour wine!  You’ll find us on Main Street with our blue tent and lots of holiday lights.  We’re going to pour Hot Mulled Wine by the glass!  We’ll have other wines with us and our Winemaker’s Special packages all packed for holiday gift giving at a great price. You can also order from us in the Tasting Room or right here on the website.  We’re bringing the beautifully hand-crafted Walking Sticks and our wine pourers that people love so much.  You can also see some of our fabulous little cork ornaments made by hand by one of our Wine Club members.  What a cute little extra gift to use on your packages!  2-6PM … Holiday Tree Lighting at 5:30!  You know it will be fun…I will be cold….

Next weekend, Ron Sabin is coming out to play on December 8th at 2 PM.  As that is the seventh day of Chanukah, he has promised to learn The Dreidel Song and may also treat us to a fabulous Kinky Friedman-style Good Ole Down Home Country Chanukah – how can you beat “That hunky Judah Macabee dude….”

Sunday, December 9th is the next Sip and Paint day.  Here’s the picnic scene you will paint to get you through the dark months with the promise of summer picnics.  A unique holiday gift to be sure!

drawing of picnic table

And giving the experience would make a pretty interesting gift, too!  $37 to paint with everything provided.   Wine will be available (surprise).  Register at Popandpaint.com.  $37 for the entire experience.  Wine will be available.

After that, we’ll be here in the Tasting Room pouring wine and sharing good cheer.  As usual, we will open up on Christmas Eve and on New Year’s Eve.  If you are going to be a last minute shopper, what better place to do it than at a Winery, right!  See above Holiday Package!

We do have some case specials right now – our 2014 Pinot Gris and the 2014 Chardonnay, both for $150/case.  They should be $216 and $240 so that’s a great price!  Yes, we will mix cases for you.  Do the math…that’s about $12.50/bottle (what a nice gift those bottles will make!) 

Gift Certificates available….so is the wine!

Welcome to December….warm wishes!  And the very best for the New Year!

Holly and Jim


We now ship to fourteen locations. (Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, Washington State, Washington DC.)


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.

Award-winning Wines

NEWS! OUR 2013 PINOT NOIR WON TWO GOLD MEDALS! These medals are special to us since one is from the Oregon Wine Awards, our peers; and, the other is from the Pinot Shootout in Sebastapol, CA where 497 Pinots from around the world were entered.

We knew the 2013 Pinot Noir was special when we tasted it a week after bottling and could not believe how smooth and delightful it was!  We did a soft introduction in the Tasting Room and couldn’t restock fast enough!  Now it has won two Gold medals, proving our instincts right! Oregon Wine Awards; Pinot Noir Shootout in Sebastapol, CA.

Our Wines Currently Being Served in the Tasting Room

2014 Mingle – Our lovely, signature white blend of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay.  Refreshing and fresh!

2014 Chardonnay – Un-oaked! Pink Grapefruit with good body and a lovely nose.

2014 Pinot Gris – Wonderful tastes of honey and Meyer Lemons.

 2016 Pinot Gris – Oregon’s Other Pinot! Full bodied, velvety and soft with tastes of honey and Meyer Lemons.

2016 Riesling – Floral nose, medium-sweet, tastes of delicate key lime pie.

2017 Riesling - Candied tropical fruits, beautiful nose, lovely body, this wine pairs with foods that have a bit of spice to them.

2017 Rosé of Pinot Noir - Our Rose has rose petals on the nose, ladyfinger apples and watermelon tastes with a little spice on the long finish.

PINOTS

2011 Pinot Noir- So smooth. Fruit forward and a very long finish. This is one of our STARs with a Double Gold in the Oregon Wine Awards, a Gold in the Northwest Food and Wine Festival, another Gold in the Pacific Northwest Invitational; and two Silvers – the American Wine Society and the Pinot Noir Shootout in Sonoma!

2012 Pinot Noir – Bold, rich raspberry, tobacco. Very smooth. The 2012 Pinot Noir won a Silver medal in the New York International Wine Competition. We are very pleased as we believe this is an excellent wine. Over 1000 wines were tasted and less than 30% won medals. There were fourteen Pinot Noirs that won a Silver (none won Gold) and we were one of four from Oregon.

2013 Pinot Noir – a crowd pleaser!  Well balanced, fruit forward, excellent flavor and very smooth.  Two Gold medals.

2014 Pinot Noir GEMINI – SILVER medal! As the star sign, two pleasures: gentle berries uniting with silky richness .

2014 Pinot Noir TROUBLE – Gold medal and an Oregon Wine Press Cellar Select! Vibrant and full of pepper, licorice and spice

2015 Pinot Noir GEMINI – Notes of berry and spice with a bit of orange peel in a silky, smooth wine. Our selected oak profile gives this wine body and character.

2015 Pinot Noir TROUBLE – Tastes from the forest to the sea to lavender fields with tangy pine, sea salt air and sunshine merging on the palate. Again, our oak profile gives this a special dimension.

2016 Pinot Noir GEMINI – Spicy red lollipop and cotton candy to go with a roller coaster of flavor that goes on and on.

2016 Pinot Noir TROUBLE – Sweet cherries and berries and a long walk in the woods, then a dinner of your favorite winter stew – Boeuf Bourguignon or Almond and chickpea Tagine?

VXX and XII – Both of these are made entirely from our Pinot Noir grapes and distilled with a brandy made from our wine. VXX is made from our Double Gold 2011 Pinot Noir. It is incredibly smooth with deep, deep berry and raisin flavors in a luxurious wine with decadent elegance. 16% alc. 3% sugar and aged for two years in oak.

XII is made from our 2012 Pinot, a legendary vintage in the Willamette Valley. It aged for four years in oak and is silky and elegant with dark, rich flavors of berry, chocolate and a bit of cinnamon. 17% alc.,4% sugar.

Both of these dessert wines are wonderful complements to fruits and cheeses and to desserts.
