It was July 2010. After making wine for nearly two years, it was time to open a tasting room. Our first wines (Sunbreak Chenin Blanc, Dewpoint Riesling and Storm Front Red Blend) were well-received and sold out in a few months. In fact we had to close the tasting room for a few months as we ran out of our small quanity of wine.
The brightly colored screen printed bottles were unique and a big hit. The logo stood out and consumers were drawn to something new and exciting. The wine inside was full-bodied, aromatic and balanced. It was the kind of wine that paired well with food with complex flavors, soft tannins and a juicy finish.
It's been 10 years. The world has changed dramatically. Monica and I both retired from our day jobs and are enjoying nature's beauty and more leisure time in North Bend. We've produced 66 different wines and learned a lot along the way. While our winemaking style will not change, you'll start to see a refresh of our brand, beginning with this blog post, newsletter and website.
Other changes coming soon include a new Reserve tier of single vineyard, single varietal and single barrel wines for our Wine Club, new labels and some new back-end system improvements.
Thank you for trusting us to bring you some great wines over the past 10 years. With you continued support, we look forward to the next 10 years!
Scott and Monica Greenberg
