The holidays are fast approaching, and what a busy year it’s been at our joint venture, J. Christopher Winery in Newberg, Oregon (USA).
The winery had a fantastic season with lots of people visiting and a great harvest–the fruit was gorgeous, and we think we’re going to have some fantastic wines from the 2012 vintage. We even picked the very first fruit from the Appassionata vineyard (in the photo, below).
If you’ll be in or near Oregon over the next two weeks, be sure to stop by the annual Thanksgiving celebration at the winery. You have several options!
SATURDAY, NOV 17 - Pre-Thanksgiving Open House for JCru Members
Join Winemaker Jay Somers, along with his family and friends, in the barrel cellar and be among the first to enjoy the 2010 single-vineyard Pinot Noirs, which include the ever-popular Sandra Adele, new bottlings from neighboring Olenik and Lia’s Vineyards, as well as the always-spectacular Abbey Ridge Vineyard. We’ll also be showing two of our most sought-after 2011 white wines: the Blanc de Noir and the Croft Vineyard Über Sauvignon, a very unique wine fermented in an acacia wood barrel. Come taste with us and stock up for the holidays!
Exclusively for our JCru and JCru Wine Club members. This will be a complimentary tasting as our way of saying thank you for always supporting us and our wines. (Want to be a JCru member? It’s FREE! Join the JCru here!)
Open hours: Saturday, Nov. 17, 11 am to 3 pm
FRIDAY/SATURDAY, Nov 23 & 24 – Thanksgiving Weekend Open House
Everyone’s invited to our Thanksgiving Weekend Open House, where we’ll be showing the same wines as at the JCru Open House and may throw in something special, maybe even some music from Jay and Tim? You never know!
Open hours: Friday & Saturday, Nov. 23 & 24, 11 am to 3 pm
Tasting fee: $10 (one refundable tasting fee per $200 purchase)
Discount: 10% on case purchases (including mixed cases)
Location: 17150 NE Hillside Drive, Newberg, Oregon (We have great directions from Portland on our website. Better than Google’s, which will send you on a round-about detour.)

Hope you can join us!
Looking forward to seeing you and wishing everyone a lovely holiday.
