Saturday-Sunday, May 20-21, 2017 | 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m
Visit Bells Up Winery without an appointment throughout the first of two consecutive Memorial Day weekend open houses. The winery’s estate tasting room will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22, 2017, and again during the same hours throughout Memorial Day weekend (Saturday-Monday, May 27-29, 2017). Tastings are $15 per person, deducted from a $75 purchase. Members of Bells Up’s Fanfare Club enjoy complimentary tastings throughout the event.
Open house guests will be among the first to experience the new winery porch expansion that maximizes the facility’s spectacular views of the Willamette Valley, and to sample the recently-released 2016 Prelude Rosé of Pinot Noir. Owner and winemaker David Specter also will pour tastings of several of Bells Up Winery’s handcrafted wines—including the 91-point scoring 2013 & 2014 Titan Pinot Noirs—paired with light fare.
Located in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, Bells Up Winery is at 27895 NE Bell Road at the intersection of Zimri Drive. In its third year of operation, the label is one of Newberg’s newest micro-boutique wineries—making approximately 400 cases annually—and is always open by appointment.
Bells Up composes handcrafted, classically-styled Oregon Pinot Noir with grapes sourced primarily from micro-growers located on the northern side of the Willamette Valley. It also offers a small selection of other Oregon-grown and produced varietals.
The name “Bells Up” is a reference to a dramatic moment in classical music where the composer instructs French horn players to lift the bells of their instruments upward and project their sound with maximum intensity. Specter, a French horn player who performed in bands and symphonic groups throughout high school and college, says the winery is his “Bells Up” moment.
