Labor Day weekend celebration at Bells Up Winery
September 4, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
One event on September 4, 2016 at 12:00pm
Bells Up Winery will celebrate Labor Day weekend at its tasting room in the Chehalem Mountains. The 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, 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 composes handcrafted, classically styled Oregon Pinot Noir with grapes sourced primarily from micro-growers in the northern 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 when the composer instructs French horn players to lift the bells of their instruments and project their sound with maximum intensity. Specter, a French horn player who performed in bands and symphonic groups throughout school, says the winery is his “Bells Up” moment.
