• Chehalem Wine Club: Your Spring 2023 Allocation

Mushroom Dumplings in Aromatic Shiitake Broth

Executive Chef & Culinary Director Becca Richards has crafted the perfect recipe to pair with both our Corral Creek Riesling and our Corral Creek Pinot Noirs in this allocation. “Pinot Noir loves mushrooms,” she explains. “Foragers find mushrooms from the Douglas firs around the Corral Creek area because of the Laurelwood soil. Riesling is also one of the few wines that can take spice and strong aromatics.” Ready to try the pairing yourself? Read the full blog post for Chef Bex’s extraordinary recipe.

Letter from Winemaker, Katie Santora

Hi friends! Welcome to your Spring wines!

This is an extraordinary shipment, as it celebrates the 40th Anniversary of a vineyard that I hold very dear to my heart, both literally and figuratively. Corral Creek Vineyard was hand planted in 1983, which gives it its whimsical characteristics and the wavy rows. This is also where the winery is located, which just so happens to be where my team and I make these loveable wines. Submerged in the vines are a couple of other hidden gems including a vintage guest house and a lineup of solar panels. If you look closely, you might spot Manny (my dog) running around as well.

The site grows five varietals; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gamay Noir. This special shipment contains two of them, Pinot Noir and Riesling, both exclusively sourced from Corral Creek! These wines are classic interpretations of the vineyard, as they are both vibrant and full, yet clean and pretty. I am so excited to share these bottles with you and I hope they accompany you along your adventures this Spring.

Cheers to good wine and good times.

Spotlight on:
2013 Corral Creek Pinot Noir

Corral Creek reminds us why we enjoy the cooler and lighter vintages so much: this vineyard wears delicacy and elegance so well it’s astounding, and 2013 was no exception. Bright garnet in color, the texture and weight on this ten-year-old wine is beautiful and stunningly complex. Violets and cedar greet the entry to join a more prominent pomegranate and strawberry fruit leather nose. All of these attributes carry over seamlessly to a palate of lovely, lifted fruit, slight woody accents, and a spicy, cherry, blood orange, hibiscus whirlwind, with lithe, dusty tannins and a brightness that lingers long after the wine is gone.
