Bells Up Winery celebrates first anniversary with open house
May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
NEWBERG, Ore. — Bells Up Winery will be open to the public for its first anniversary during two consecutive weekends in May. The winery’s estate tasting room will be open from noon to 4:00 p.m. the weekend before (May 21-22) and again the weekend of Memorial Day (May 28-30).
In the Chehalem Mountains AVA, Bells Up Winery is housed in a recently renovated pole barn at 27895 NE Bell Road at the intersection of Zimri Drive. Tastings are $15 per person, deducted from a $75 purchase. Members of Bells Up’s Fanfare Club enjoy complimentary tastings throughout the event.
Guests will enjoy tastings of five of Bells Up Winery’s handcrafted wines—three of which will be released this month—paired with light fare and spectacular views from the tasting room. During the open house, owner and winemaker David Specter will pour:
- 2014 Rhapsody Pinot Blanc
- 2015 Prelude Rosé of Pinot Noir
- 2013 & 2014 Titan Pinot Noirs
- 2014 Firebird Syrah
The label is one of Newberg’s newest micro-boutique wineries — making approximately 400 cases annually — and is always open by appointment. Bells Up produces handcrafted, classically styled Oregon Pinot Noir with grapes sourced primarily from micro-growers on the northern side of the Willamette Valley. It also offers a small selection of other Oregon-grown and produced varietals.
The name “Bells Up” is a reference to a dramatic moment in classical music where the composer instructs French horn players to lift the bells of their instruments upward and project their sound with maximum intensity. Specter, a French horn player who performed in bands and symphonic groups throughout high school and college, says the winery is his “Bells Up” moment.
