We are thrilled to announce that Bells Up Winery’s 2015 Prelude Willamette Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir wine, released in April, has been selected by Martin Bleck, executive chef of Newberg’s Subterra Restaurant, for inclusion in the establishment’s “Rosé Spring Fling 2016.” Martin and his wife/boss Janet, who runs the pair’s Rogue Gourmet Catering Company, dropped in for a tasting while delivering a lush catering spread for a private Fanfare Club member’s event here, and surprised us with the news.
As it turns out, Martin—who selects all the wines for Subterra’s wine list—is passionate about the pink. “He can’t get enough of the stuff, and by the time we get into summer his side of the home garage is filled with cases and cases of rosés,” writes Janet. “It’s always a sign that spring is here. So we decided to share a little with our valued customers!”
Here’s how Martin describes it:
’15 Bells Up Rosé of Pinot Noir “Prelude” Willamette Valley
Made from a well established, yet little known vineyard in the northern Willamette. A nice medium bodied rosé that has complex flavors.
