Yesterday Chris and I decided to check out one of our favorite wineries while out in Roseburg, Champagne Creek. It is an 1878 rustic barn that has been converted into a winery, gift shop, tasting room, and processing room.
We originally were just going to go get a glass of Pinot Noir and sit out in the vineyard and enjoy a glass of wine, but of course we had to do the tasting of the wines. After a full tasting, we signed up for their wine of the month club, bought our first 3 bottles of wine, at 30% off and then headed out to enjoy a glass of Pinot. The gal that ran the place, Sherry, came out and said ..”Hey, since no one is here, would you like to do some barrell tasting?” Sure we said. It was awesome. We tried some wines that were just put up in 2006, some that had been in there since 2003, reds mostly, we saw the production line, packaging, and everything else that goes on in the processing of a good bottle of wine. They do alot of warehousing for smaller vineyards there also. It was impressive.
