Willamette Valley Vineyards (WVVI), an Oregon-based winery, announced that the company will host a Groundbreaking & SeVein Celebration. This highly anticipated event will take place on Sunday, May 15, 2016 at company’s new Pambrun Vineyard, located in Walla Walla Valley. The complementary event is open to shareholders, prospective shareholders, and their families.
Along with the attendance of consulting Winemaker Jon Meuret, the Pambrun family, Architect Joe Chauncy of Boxwood and the SeVein Managing Partners, founders and their families will have the opportunity to plant a Cabernet Sauvignon vine in the vineyard. Preceding Sunday’s event, the company will host a Winemaker's Dinner on Saturday, May 14th at 6:30 pm at the Marcus Whitman Hotel. Guests will enjoy a four course meal by The Marc's Executive Chef paired with Willamette Valley Vineyards and local Walla Walla wines.
Dedicated to producing the finest Pinot Noir from grapes grown in the Willamette Valley Appellation, Willamette Valley Vineyards prides itself on producing a premium product. “Our mission in growing cool-climate varietals is to create elegant, classic Oregon wines from the Willamette Valley Appellation,” said Jim Bernau, Founder and CEO of Willamette Valley Vineyards. “As native Oregonians, we treasure our environment and use sustainable practices in growing and vinifying our wine grapes.”
The company’s dedication to quality has been recognized time and time again. In recent years, Willamette Valley Vineyards has been named “Winery of the Year” by Wine & Spirits Magazine and Wine Press Northwest, along with being named “Hottest Small Brand” by Wine Business Monthly. In addition to these accolades, the company has revealed a number of positive developments in recent months, including:
- Forming a new Wine making division last year.
- Announcing a new stock offering in order to raise $6 million for expansion plans.
- Purchasing 42 acres near Walla Walla, Washington.
Furthermore, Willamette Valley Vineyards is the first to get federal government permission to print the resveratrol content, a natural compound found in some fruits, nuts and red wine that has demonstrated a number of health benefits, on its wine. "Pinot noir has been proven to contain the most resveratrol over all other grape varieties, especially grown in cool climates like the Willamette Valley of Oregon", said Bernau.
According to Wine Enthusiast Magazine, “A combination of determination and extraordinary people has brought Willamette Valley Vineyards from an idea to one of the region's leading wineries, earning the title ‘One of America's Great Pinot Noir Producers’.” With reviews like that, along with the production of an award-winning product, Willamette Valley Vineyards is positioned for continued growth, with more events, like their Groundbreaking & SeVein Celebration, surely to come.
