Looking Forward to Summer: Vineyard Luncheon

Is there anything more idyllic in the summertime than enjoying a picnic lunch in the rolling hills of a vineyard, glass of wine in hand? We don't think so! Which is why this summer we're hosting a vineyard luncheon! 

We've hosted vineyard luncheons in the past and when Olson Estate Vineyard turned 40, we celebrated with a party in the vineyard. It's a beautiful locale for any event and we're eager to host another lunch this summer. 

Vineyard luncheons are a special event because they include a once-in-a-lifetime tour through the vineyard with Jacques. Learn the history of the vines, where they came from, and what clones and varietals are featured in our vineyard. Learn about Jim McDaniel who first planted the vineyard in 1972 and get up close and personal with the vines to see differences in leaves, clusters, and the details of grafting. 

After the educational tour, you enjoy lunch on our deck overlooking the vineyard and our breathtaking view of Mt Hood and the Cascade Range. And it really doesn't get much better than that does it?

The 2016 Vineyard Luncheon on July 23 will take place at our Dundee Vineyard at 11:30am. Tickets are $35 per person and available for purchase here

Cheers!

Memorial Day 2016 in Wine Country

Memorial Day Weekend caps off the 31-day celebration of Oregon wine that is Oregon Wine Month. This year we're co-hosting a special event with some of our neighbors here in the Red Hills.

The First Sip of Summer Event is a tasting tour featuring five participating wineries: Four Graces, Roco, Lange, Thistle, and us, Torii Mor. The tasting tour costs $5 to participate, (in addition to each winery's tasting fee) which includes a map and tasting card to keep track of your tour and you'll receive a 15% off discount on all wine purchases from the five participating wineries! You can purchase a tasting tour card at any of the five wineries. 

To celebrate the weekend each winery will feature something special, whether it's a unique wine flight, a food truck, or delicious chocolate, the First Sip of Summer tasting tour is sure to be a treat! 

Here's a map of the tour. We'll be selling tickets in our tasting room and at our club event. We can't wait to see you there! 

Cheers!

Oregon Wine Month 2016

May is a special month for Oregon Wine for multiple reasons: the sun starts shining, celebrating Memorial Day Weekend is a treat, and it's Oregon Wine Month. Oregon Wine Month gives us wineries a chance to really celebrate who we are, our rich history of wine in Oregon, and to share the joy and camaraderie of wine with others. 

Here at Torii Mor, we'll be celebrating with a few fun and exciting things so here's the detailed report on what to expect from Torii Mor this May!

Social Media

Keep tabs on our vineyards progress, what Jacques and Jon are up to in the winery and distillery, and take a month-long jaunt through our history! Each Tuesday and Saturday expect a special post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with a tidbit of TM's history. We'll journey back through our twenty-plus years as a winery and the forty-plus years of our vineyard to pull out some stories that are real treats. 

Win a Wine Country Weekend!

As well, we'll be sharing all the details of a special sweepstakes! The Oregon Wine Board is offering the chance to win a wine country getaway in the Willamette Valley or in Southern Oregon! All the details can be found here or be sure to check our social media platforms for more info! 

Events

The crowning jewel of events during Oregon Wine Month is Memorial Day Weekend. This special weekend is one of two weekends in the year where certain wineries and vineyards open to the public and where special discounts and special wines are the name of the game. This year we're partnering up with Roco Winery, Thistle Wines, Lange Winery, and the Four Graces to host a special tasting tour: First Sip of Summer! Take a tour through Dundee Hills, tasting at each of the five wineries and receive 15% off wine purchases! 

Keep an eye on social media for Torii Mor and your other favorite Oregon brands for more celebrations and fun during May, Oregon Wine Month! See you on Memorial Day weekend!

Cheers!
