The Willamette Valley Wineries Association featured our 2017 Prelude Estate Rosé in their Spring Stories coverage last week. The wine will be featured at our upcoming Pre-Memorial Day Weekend and Memorial Day Weekend Open Houses.
CMO and money honey Sara was interviewed in the article, “The Season of New Arrivals in the Willamette Valley,” about the wine and how intensely personal this particular release has been.
“We’ve made rosé from the beginning (at my mom’s request) using sourced fruit; but this one is super-personal,” says Sara Specter, who founded Bells Up with her husband, attorney-turned-winemaker Dave Specter, in 2013. The rosé, dubbed Prelude…has a special Memorial Day significance.
“Many of the rows in our vineyard have been tagged with the names of friends and family who have passed away during this journey, as Dave transitioned from corporate tax attorney to winemaker. This wine is the first of many to come that honors the memory of those people we desperately wish were still here to enjoy a glass with us.”
We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and new—and sharing this wine (and three others)—in a few weeks over those Memorial Day weekends. Come see us then without an appointment, or before WITH an appointment.
