San Francisco Visit & Tasting

Last week I had the opportunity to return to one of my favorite cities in our country, San Francisco, for a quick trip to host a tasting with our latest releases.  I headed back to The Hidden Vine, where we had held a tasting a few years back as they are one of our best supporters and great friends.

 

The Hidden Vine is fantastic wine bar on Merchant Street in the shadow of the TransAmerica building in Downtown San Francisco that is a great fan of small production wines and sharing their discoveries with their guests.  Also, one of its coolest features is that it has an outdoor bocce court that runs alongside the venue.  I mean, how many places do you know where you can sip on a delicious glass of wine while tossing bocce balls?

 

That night I was able to share with our guests our 2011 Pinot Noir and the 2012 Riesling to taste.  The group was extremely appreciative of the wines, with a few of our friends of Labor being there to support as well as many new people we had a chance to meet.

 

After the tasting, I headed over to see another close friend of ours, Nick Floulis of Pushback Wines, who had recently opened the Chubby Noodle in the Marina neighborhood.  ‘The Noodle’ is a modern Asian restaurant that serves late, basically throws a party every night and has quickly become a go-to spot in the area with its neighbors.  To quote @Zagat SF “If a Japanese Izakaya and Chinese dim sum met a family-style party with California wines and hip-hop thrown in for good measure, it might look like @ChubbyNoodleSF.  Not too shabby, right?  The Noodle is also a supporter of Labor Wines, currently carrying our 2011 Pinot Noir which has been a big hit so far with their guests.

 

Nick was the consummate host, as always, guiding me through the menu and making sure my wine glass was always full.  Highlight of my meal was definitely the Salt & Pepper Shrimp (gluten-free, by the way); I’m craving it now actually!

 

As I mentioned, it was a quick trip supporting our wines, but I look forward to heading back to the city by the Bay soon enough, hopefully to share more of our Oregon grape juice!

 

Don’t forget, when you are enjoying a bottle of our wine, make sure to take a picture and share it with us on Facebook or via Twitter.  As well, you can always email me directly, Corey@LaborWines.com or call on cell, 702.466.0987.

Labor Day, a Very Special Day

According to the Federal government, United States Department of Labor, the history of Labor Day is noted below;

 

Labor Day: How it Came About; What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

 

Here at Labor Wines, obviously, Labor Day has significant meaning to us in everything we do. Not only was the original concept of our winery hatched on Labor Day weekend, we truly believe in the American worker and those who contribute to the greater good of our country.  When you look at the credo on our bottle, you know this to be true as well;

 

Everything takes Labor to accomplish.  Without Labor, there would be no end result and no satisfaction.  Labor is the driving force throughout history of how to get things done.  From Labor is the idea that hard work presents rewards and what better way to embrace that vision – from our hands to yours.

 

This Labor Day holiday, take a moment to stop, think about the sacrifices of others, thank those that you come across who are working and be truly appreciative of those who have come before us to make our United States of America, a better place.  Looking forward to seeing and speaking with each and every one of you soon.

 

Happy Labor Day,

Corey & Dick

Spring has sprung: Two new wines!

Hello to you all!

 

We hope you are getting in the Spring spirit, and perhaps our news will help warm you up and think of sunshine and enjoying a bottle of wine or two!  We wanted to let you know that the newest wines from Labor Wines are now being released!  We are extremely excited for these and can’t wait to have you taste them.

 

We’d like to introduce our 2011 Pinot Noir (3rd vintage) and a first, our 2012 Riesling.

 

The 2011 Pinot Noir is the result of a very interesting vintage where it was extremely cool for almost all of the year, until the last month of harvest when the sun came out and temperatures were extremely moderate right before harvest, allowing a true integration of sugar and acid, resulting in a very balanced wine.  On the nose you have a slight smoke and spice box, with red fruits and touch of creaminess with the integration of French oak and the juice, the true hallmark of our Pinot Noir.  For this year’s Pinot Noir we produced 405 cases and are really happy with our steady growth as a winery.

 

Our 2012 Riesling is the second white we have made and this year we wanted to change it up a touch.  The fruit we were able to source comes from vines between 35-38 years old, all from vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton and Chehalem Mountain AVA’s, 100% stainless steel fermented and has been made in a dry style.  This wine has dried apricots on the nose and a touch of pears; as it warms up the Riesling takes on a viscousness with fruit, acid and sugar extremely well balanced.  This is an extremely small production wine, with only 112 cases made.

 

The Pinot Noir is available for $25.00 a bottle/$300.00 a case and the Riesling is $18.00 a bottle/$216.00 a case, both plus shipping.  If you would like to get your hands on these wines, feel free to reach out to us via the website, email (Corey@LaborWines.com) or via phone, (855.503.9463).

 

As well, we are currently in the process of planning our Spring schedule for visits around the country.  It’s looking like we are going to have a few wine dinners/events happening, starting with Las Vegas (May and June) and possibly New York City in June as well.  Be on the lookout for us to visit Colorado with a potential Arizona trip too.  If you’d like us to come to your city or have any ideas, drop us a line on our Facebook page or via Twitter and we’ll try to make it happen.

 

We look forward to catching up with each and every one of you soon and if you’re interested in some wine from the great state of Oregon, we can definitely make this happen!

 

Talk soon, all the best.

 

Cheers,

Corey

Spring Wine Events!

With Memorial Day Weekend just days away, I wanted to take a moment to let you all know about some pretty cool events coming up for us here at Labor Wines.

This Saturday, May 26 we will be holding our 1st ever Las Vegas tasting! The event is FREE and all over the age of 21 are welcome to attend.  Corey will be pouring our newest vintage of 2010 Pinot Noir at Marche Bacchus from 11:00am until 1:00pm (or until the wine runs out!), who’s thirsty?  For those of you that have not been to Marche Bacchus before, it is a very cool wine shop and restaurant in the Lakes run by very good friends of ours, Jeff & Rhonda Wyatt.

We hope you are able to join us!

The next event coming up is going to be on Friday, June 1 at the Hostile Grape, at the M Resort in conjunction with Sonny and Chris from Rock n’ Roll Wine. We’ll be pouring both wines complimentary from 5:00pm until 7:00pm, then the wines will be available by the glass for the rest of the night during the live music performances. And, as a reminder, this is also a 21 and over event, so please leave the kids at home. Sonny and Chris of Rock n’ Roll Wine are great guys and longtime supporters – we’ve been fans of theirs and their events here in Las Vegas for years, so please come down and support!

Looking forward to seeing you at one or both tastings if you can make it and as always, thank you all for your constant support and love of wine!
