Season Cellars will be pouring wine by the Deschutes River on August 14, 2014 at Crossings Restaurant and Pub from 6-8pm.
Founded in 2012 and owned and operated by Scott IV and Jennifer Henry, Season Cellars uses grapes grown from Umpqua, Rogue and Applegate Valleys. Even though their winery is newer, Scott and Jennifer are far from new to the Oregon wine industry. Both come from previous family wineries and bring 30 years each to Season Cellars.
"We've both been in it for a long time; we enjoy making wines that match well with food and love to see people also enjoy our unique varietals and blends," explains Scott. "We love fresh fruit forward whites to match with our spicy dishes and shellfish ( I made Jambalaya last night) like Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris or maybe a Torrontes or Albarino. We also love big, rich reds that show good varietal fruit and are not over oaked, Bordeaux, Rhone and Italian varietals and blends. "
Based in Southern Oregon in Medford with no tasting room, the Henry's self-distribute to many retailers and restaurants in Oregon -- including Crossings Restaurant and Pub.
Their 2011 Malbec received Silver Medals from the San Francisco Chronicle in 2014 and NW Wine Summit 2013. Wine Enthusiast also gave it 86 points! It's a blend of 87.5% Malbec and 12.5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Henry's describe the wine as "bursting aromas of violets and lavender succumb to a luscious mouthful of Marion berry pie, which keeps you coming back for more. Enjoy with hearty full flavored dishes, chevre or by its self."
The Henry's will be pouring five wines at the August 14th event! Their 2011 Malbec, 2012 Syrah, 2013 Viognier, 2013 Marsannne Roussanne, and the 2013 Transparency, a delightful, semi-sparkling blend of Muller-Thurgau, Muscat and Riesling.
