Herald the Holidays at Bells Up Winery
November 20, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Bells Up Winery invites the public to Herald the Holiday season with a Wine Country Thanksgiving open house event. The winery’s estate tasting room will be open from noon to 4 p.m. the weekend before Thanksgiving, Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 19-20), as well as after Thanksgiving on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 25-27).
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 taste four of Bells Up Winery’s handcrafted wines, paired with light fare and spectacular views from the tasting room. During the event, owner/winemaker David Specter will pour:
The label is one of Newberg’s newest micro-boutique wineries — making approximately 400 cases annually — and is always open by appointment. Bells Up composes 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.
