She Married Into Wine
Merry, Jingle, Happy Everything!
Well, it’s chilly enough outside to actually feel like the winter holidays are upon us! And indeed they are. We love the confluence of all the celebrations, including the December family birthdays and anniversaries we celebrate. So…we’ll be toasting lots of things in the Tasting Room all December long.
Our Tasting Room will be open each weekend and Tuesdays - Thursdays by appointment but not, of course, Christmas Day or New Year's Day.
On December 2nd, come and see us at the German International School Holiday Market in Beaverton at the Library. http://www.gspdx.org/Calendar/Holiday-Market
This is kind of crazy since it’s from 10 AM to 9 PM…bring hot coffee for me if you come!
Here’s a sample of the gifts we’ll have available, in addition to our wines, of course!
The Dog Pourer
Wine Clutch Purse
Both of the above are reasonably priced. These will also be in the Tasting Room as of Saturday, as long as they last.
We also have the High-Heel pourer
You can sample our lovely wines….we’ll be pouring the 2015 Riesling ….in the Tasting Room, of course, and we hope you will stop by for some good holiday cheer. You can buy our wines on line right here….
And you can also give a gift of a Wine Club membership! If you don’t want to do the transaction online, just give us a call at 503-992-1196 or shoot us an email at email@example.com …
The month of December will speed by; we know this from experience! At its end, on New Year’s Eve, we’ll be in the barn wishing our horses a Happy Birthday. They all turn one year older on New Year’s Eve and Jim sings Happy Birthday to each one of them and says something sweet to each one. It is one of the sweetest moments of our year. We wish you the same sweetness.
Holly and Jim

Holly and Jim
We got married in 2006 under a beautiful teahouse that Jim built for us. We've known each other for over 40 years … Holly was a not very good secretary to Jim way back in New York in the television production business. Jim was known as "The Myth" for all he was able to accomplish. He ran a scrappy new company that was involved in such notables as Sesame Street and The Electric Company, many of the Central Park Concerts – from Barbra Streisand to George Shearing. Jim was even business manager for KISS! Holly spent her life raising money for good works and writing.
In 2006, after a lot of life had intervened (ask us, we'll tell you), a mutual friend threw his Cupid's darts and urged us to have lunch. We were both living in the Pacific Northwest by then, although 200 miles apart; Holly - a city girl, Jim - a farm boy. Holly drove down to Oregon, had a lovely lunch, drove home and told Jim he was terrific but geographically undesirable.
Jim was persistent….and, suddenly, there we were standing in a beautiful spot in the Willamette Valley getting married! It really is romantic owning a vineyard! Now we are a wedding destination.
