Join Bells Up Winery for one of our three annual open house weekend events during Labor Day weekend. On Saturday and Sunday—September 5 and 6, 2015—our winery/tasting room facility will be open from Noon to 4:00 p.m.
Located on Chehalem Mountain, Bells Up is housed in a newly renovated pole barn at 27895 Northeast Bell Road at the intersection of Zimri Drive. Tastings are $15 per person, deducted from a $75 purchase.
Three of our inaugural releases will be poured*:
- 2014 Rhapsody Pinot Blanc
- 2014 Prelude Rosé of Pinot Noir
- 2013 Titan Pinot Noir
The label is the Willamette Valley’s newest micro-boutique winery, producing 400 cases annually, and is usually open only by appointment. Owned by winemaker Dave Specter, Bells Up produces handcrafted Oregon Pinot Noir from grapes sourced from micro-growers located on the northern side of the Willamette Valley. It also offers a small selection of other Oregon-grown and produced vintages.
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.
