R. Stuart & Co. Twitter Tasting - Bloggers Blend

Pulling the cork on this bottle tonight!
Tonight at 5:00 pm PST - a group of fellow wine bloggers and I will be opening our custom blended bottles of Oregon Pinot Noir. We'll be tweeting our tasting experiences using #bloggersblend - you can already find conversations starting.

We created our custom Pinot Noir blends last year at R. Stuart & Co. winery in McMinville, Oregon after the 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference.

*For a good read on our wine tasting and blending experience at R.Stuart & Co., read the article by the Wandering Wino: R. Stuart Bloggers Blend Pinot Noir.

Our Bloggers Blend #4 we named "Reverence" in recognition of the reverence Oregon winemakers and grape growers show for the vineyard and each other. Our blend is 100% Oregon Pinot Noir, blended on August 19th 2012. It is, 60% Weber, 30% Daffodil Hill, 5% Courting Hill and 5% Hirschy vineyards. It was a truly rewarding experience.

Here are some photos I took last year at R. Stuart and Co.
