She’s back! Author Kerry McDaniel Boenisch to sign copies of “Dirt+Vine=Wine” at Bells Up on Sunday, May 29.

KerryHeadshotWe were thrilled to have author Kerry McDaniel Boenisch in the Bells Up Winery tasting room for two days during our Thanksgiving 2015 Open House hours. She was so popular with our guests, we’ve brought her back for an encore!

We are delighted to invite guests at Bells Up’s Memorial Day Weekend Open House to meet author Kerry McDaniel Boenisch in person on Sunday, May 29 from 2-4 p.m.

KerryDirtVineWineCover2-May2016About Kerry: It’s safe to say that if you were a local winegrowing or winemaking pioneer in the Red Hills of Dundee, Oregon in the 1970s, Kerry has some dirt on you. (And quite possibly still on herself, since she worked alongside her parents who started the highly-regarded Torii Mor vineyards and winery at that time, too.)

Luckily for Oregon wine enthusiasts, Kerry is dishing the dirt on that period in the region’s history in her second book, Dirt + Vine = Wine, published last year. In it, she recounts the stories of the friends and neighbors as they established their own mark on the winemaking world.

Kerry will be hanging out, selling and signing copies of her book (a perfect gift for the Oregon wine lover!), and sharing a few stories. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to meet one of the Willamette Valley’s great storytelling voices… And, if we manage to get a little wine in her, she might even spill some of the tales that didn’t make it into print…

See you Sunday!
