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.

We tasted seven delicious samples of Portland Catering Company's many selections and they were wonderful! We totally recommend them for your event at our Vineyard or anywhere else!

Here's a terrific interview we did in August on the local business show on kuik Hillsboro.

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

February 2019

LOVE FEST ALL MONTH LONG

L’ets get in the mood for an exciting February starting with the SuperBowl (frankly, we don’t even know who’s playing since the Seahawks are out) but we’ll have it on in the Big Room if anyone wants to catch a play.  And, really, it’s not on until late, right, so you’ll have plenty of time to taste wine beforehand.  AND ALSO, to watch the Puppy Bowl airing at Noon our time.  The Kitten Bowl is on at 11 AM in case you want the full furry experience before heading out to taste.   Sigh.  So adorable.  Lots of fluffy puppies and kitties to adopt including older ones and special needs ones.

SERIOUSLY ADORABLE….

The next weekend, February 8-10th…get ready for LOVE at the Annual Valentine’s Loop featuring a dozen local wineries so you can stay right in our neighborhood for the weekend and get all the lovely wine and treats you can imagine!  Start right here and we will treat you to our two chocolate fountains, an ice-cream sundae station, fantastic Queen Bee truffles and music on Saturday and Sunday.  And we’ll give you a little souvenir photo of your visit!

FEB8 Valentine's Wine Tasting Loop - Feb 8-10, 2019
The essentials are that you pick up a card to be stamped at the first winery you visit, get it stamped wherever you stop, turn it in at the last of your stops and be entered in a drawing for two baskets of wine goodies.

Friday, February 9th, Jim takes over the Tasting Room at 4 PM while I am at the 2nd Annual CHOCOPALOOZA at Decadent Creations in Hillsboro.   We’ll pour our lovingest, sweetest wines – Riesling, Rosé and Port – plus a Pinot Noir or two.  It’s from 4-8 PM.  We definitely want you all to feel loved all weekend!

Decadent Creations 171 NE 3rd Ave, Hillsboro, OR 97124

Looking for a truly unique gift for your Valentine (or hope to be Valentine….)   How about a Sip and Paint class together where you each paint one half of a beautiful picture.  It’s the weekend after Valentine’s Day on February 17th so you can stretch out the celebration

  Please make reservations.  Painting begins at 3 PM.  Come early to have a glass of wine (more available during the session for courage!).  Here’s where to register.

Pop and Paint

February 22-24 will be our next Wine Club party…still time for people to join!

The season is just beginning and, as ever, we are so excited by the possibilities.  The weather has been unseasonably warm here in Oregon.  It’s always a great time to visit (yes, even in the rain) so if you are reading this from outside of our borders, pack a bag and head to the temperate Northwest.  Make sure you stop in to sample our wines and have a cookie!

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.
