Our Award Winning…


Yesterday was a very busy and exciting day for us…not that most days aren’t busy and exciting, however, yesterday we participated in the Northwest Food & Wine Festival in Portland Oregon. 

We are proud to announce that both our Noble Pig Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris both won bronze medals in this very stiff competition of amazing Northwest wines.  With over 600 participating wineries and other vendors, only 70 medals were awarded.  Only 12 Pinot Noir and 4 Pinot Gris wines were given medal status and we are so proud to have been one of the recipients!!

A big thank you to all our readers who came out and tasted and took home some of our wines.  It is always such a thrill to meet you all in person.  And another big thank you to all the event guests whose kind words and purchases made our hearts full.

Here is a shot of the venue before the event started, Pure Space, in the Pearl District of downtown Portland.  Our table was located at the top left.  With 1500 guests, and hundreds of event participants, it was a busy night of wine pouring, noshing and schmoozing.  We loved it.

There was amazing food and wine at this event….I wished I could have tried it all.  I think the chocolate-covered bacon was one of my favorites.

Again, thank you all for your support in making our small, family business a success.  We couldn’t do it without you.

    Spending time with family is the key to a great Christmas……Mom (87), husband, daughters, sons in law and wonderful grandchildren for an incredible feast. What could be better?
