75% 2018 Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir + 25% 2019 Havlin Vineyard Gamay Noir

Gently egg white fined. Unfiltered.
Label Series: “Uitwaaien” is a very Columbia Gorge Dutch word. In practice it means to go outside on a windy day, ideally somewhere in nature, and let the strong breezes clear your mind. The label was designed during a tropical storm. The wine is grounding and structured. Consider decanting if drinking young.
Shipping capabilities have recently expanded to include 42 states. I hope this will make it easier to get wine to you where you live. I am currently able to ship anywhere in the U.S. except: ND, NH, UT, MS, AL, VT, KY, and SD.
Please note that temperatures exceeding 70 degrees Fahrenheit can negatively impact wine quality. If the weather en route to your destination is too warm for safe transport, your wine will be kept safely in the cellar until conditions are conducive to shipping. The signature of an adult at least 21 years of age will be required at the time of delivery.
