Our Winery of the Month for February is MonksGate Vineyard, a winery & vineyard located on a 50 acre farm adjacent to the Trappist Abbey, in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. We will be featuring their Pinot Noir & Riesling by the glass all month long.
We will be hosting a Six Feet Apart Tasting of their wine at Red Hills Market.
ABOUT THE WINERY:
“What began simply as a way to “get back to the land” after a decades long departure from ranching roots in Colorado, MonksGate Vineyard has become the heart-and-soul expression of our devotion to responsible farming and the crafting of premium wines. Our 50-acre farm is located in the now-acclaimed Yamhill-Carlton AVA of Oregon’s Northern Willamette Valley where we, and subsequently our daughter and Second-Generation farmer Rebecca, were drawn to the maritime climate of cool nights, warm dry summer days and, of course, the opportunity to produce stellar wines!”
