Wine and travel writer Pam Baker—who visited us last August with her husband Gary on assignment for—recently filed a new story for Food Wine Travel (FWT) Magazine. The feature, “Where to Find Sparkling Wine in Willamette Valley,” recaps several producers of bubbles in our region. Pam featured our new 2022 Joy Estate Seyval Blanc Brut in her coverage.

Based in California, the Bakers have visited and reported on several famous wine regions. The pair is also a member of the International Food Wine Travel Writers Association (FWT Magazine is the official magazine of IFWTWA). We were honored to be included in the article. Pam writes…

Bells Up Winery, a boutique winery perched on the side of Chehalem Mountain, overlooks the town of Newberg. Owned by Dave and Sara Specter, the winery offers an approachable wine tasting experience. Dave, the winemaker, leads each tasting, typically limited to no more than six guests.

The winery just introduced a brand-new sparkling wine, the Joy Seyval Blanc Brut. This elegant wine is crafted from the Willamette Valley’s only planting of the Seyval Blanc grape. With delicate bubbles and crisp notes of honeyed apple, orange blossom, and apricots, this sparkling wine is a lovely addition to the Bells Up brand.

Due to extremely limited quantities, we don’t often have a bottle of Joy open for tasting. Be sure to ask when scheduling your private tasting appointment. All tastings are hosted by Winemaker Dave and exclusively for one group at a time. To book, contact us or call the winery at 503.537.1328.
