Okay DOWNpour followers (how do you like that spelling by the way?), it's on with Lenné for March and I could not be more excited. You might remember when Meghan and I stumbled upon Lenné last fall while cruising through Yamhill...well, this winery has been on my mind ever since. Steve Lutz the winemaker and owner is doing an incredible job on all fronts. Often referred to as a hidden gem, Lenné's setting, coupled with limited production wine, makes for a grand tasting experience.
Here's the skinny: Once again, all you need to do is show up (Saturdays or Sundays 12-5 in March), mention "downpour", and you'll be solid.
* A 2 for 1 tasting ($5 per person, waived with purchase) This tasting will include the 2nd flight of Owen Roe wines-yummy
*10% off all purchases, 15% off cases (smart to do, as his wines sell out and he produces only 1500 cases a year)
*A special invitation to attend a blind Pinot tasting on March 6th, which is $20 for the public, $17 for DOWNpour followers.
This event is going to be super fun, he will be pouring some high priced Pinots from the region and this is a great opportunity to test your palate and learn a bit more about Oregon Pinots and what makes them taste the way they do.
IF, you want to attend the March 6th event, shoot me a line ASAP. Space is very limited. It is being held from 11-12:30ish.
I cannot stress enough how honored I am to be working with Lenné. This winemaking story is ripe with passion, hard work, dedication and perseverance. I suggest checking out Lenné Estate to learn more.
A little message from Steve to you below.
And some winery shots for more incentive. It really does look like a french farm house, with some fun NW accents.
above is a stone wood-fire pizza oven, could you imagine sitting out in the summer around this thing?
