In The Glass: Pfeiffer ’08 Blue Dot Reserve Pinot Noir

I finally got some time to celebrate the exciting win for Best New Wine Blog, and it was the best celebration possible. Three of my best friends and I spent an afternoon at one of the South Willamette Valley’s premier wineries: Pfeiffer Winery. We split a bottle of the Pfeiffer 2008 Blue Dot Reserve Pinot Noir and enjoyed every last sip of this fine wine while sitting among the tranquil and gorgeous Pfeiffer Winery Water Gardens. It was...

In The Glass: Pfeiffer Viognier 2008

What’s a wine gal to do when her air conditioning conks out on the absolute most humid day in the Willamette Valley since who knows when? I’ll tell you – she opens a bottle of very chilled Pffeiffer Vineyards 2008 Oregon Viognier. Pfeiffer Vineyards ’08 Oregon Viognier has a beautifully fruity nose with aromas of grapefruit and bananas. On the palate, a silky mouthfeel along with refreshing grapefruit, peach and pineapple flavors create a wave of freshness with...

I Went for the Truffles, but Stayed for the Wine

My first visit to the Oregon Truffle Festival not only introduced me to the shockingly pungent, yet delicious fungi, commonly know as Truffles, but I was also introduced to a couple new Oregon wineries: Big Table Farm and ColemanVineyard. While others were taking in the incredibly unique aroma of truffles, I was {yes, I know, big shocker} tasting wine. Initially, I saw familiar faces standing behind tables lined with bottles of wine: Robin and Danuta Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer...

Not Your Momma’s Chardonnay

Not Your Momma’s Chardonnay

As a child, I clearly remember my mom saying to my dad on multiple occasions, “Honey, don’t forget the Chardonnay!”  as he’d head out the door to the store to complete a task on his honey-do-list. My mom loved Chardonnay. When I was sixteen, I remember trying my first sip of Chardonnay during Thanksgiving dinner, and the toasted oak flavors, creamy mouth feel and long lasting finish was one I wouldn’t soon forget. In my early twenties, I...
