Hot but not bothered in the Willamette Valley

July 7th, 2010 by Nicolette Bailey

Even if it’s hot out we don’t stop working in the vineyard in the Willamette Valley.  Aspen is replanting and taking good care of her new pinot gris vine that is from Dave and Robin @ Carlton Callers.  Jess supervised and did most of the digging.

Growing Grapes in Willamette Valley

July 6th, 2010 by Nicolette Bailey

Grapes are growing like crazy here in the Willamette Valley on Youngberg Hill Vineyard. The vines have so much pent up energy, with this warmer weather they are growing faster than we can move the wires to hold them in place to get a nice even canopy (the green 7 foot high wall of shoots).

The views on the Hill are as good as it gets and today Mood and Jefferson are at their brightest. Not a cloud in the sky and the humidity is down. The cool ocean breeze is blowing in from the coast. Did I mention heaven?

Hope everyone is enjoying the extra day off. Cheers!

Congratulations, Jess!

We want to officially welcome Jess to our Youngberg Hill family.  Jess has been with us for years and many of you know him already.  He has just retired from his day job after 33 years of service. We are thrilled to have Jess onboard to help us achieve our goals.  Jess will be Youngberg Hill’s assistant winemaker as well as wine sales & hospitality.. (You can fill in the rest.)

4th of July in the Willamette Valley

July 2nd, 2010 by Nicolette Bailey

The sun is out, the temperatures are rising and we are all set for a great Independence Day in the Willamette Valley.

The vines are growing smartly and we are spending a lot of time positioning the shoots for a well managed canopy. Fruit set should begin any time we start to get warmer temperatures.

We have two weddings this weekend and then it will be time to set back and watch the fireworks from 19 venues across the valley that we can see from Youngberg Hill.
