We were thrilled and delighted to be included as one of two favorite winery picks by Chicagoland boutique caterer and personal chef Deb Miley, pictured above with Bells Up winemaker Dave when she made a surprise visit to our tasting room on October 29, 2016. Deb recently published a blog recommending us and the inestimable Domaine Drouhin (!!!) as her top two picks for wine pairings for the holidays: “The World’s Best Wine for Your Holiday Catering.”
Here’s what she had to say about us:
Bells Up Winery
This is a boutique winery owned and operated by David Specter. If you want to learn more about anything and everything wine related, from wine making to storage, visit Bells Up the next time you’re out West. They only make 400 cases of classically-grown Pinot Noir each year, and offer small-batch varietals. This handcrafted approach makes every bottle as unique and special as the holiday season. I can’t wait until next November when I can finally open up the 2014 Pinots I purchased on this trip!
Thanks much for the love Deb! Come back and visit us again on your next Willamette Valley vacation!
