PORTLAND, Ore. (June 7, 2021) – The Fullerton family is excited to welcome friends new and old into their tasting room for a special Midsommar celebration! Dating back to the 1300s this Nordic holiday celebrates the return of the sun which brings longer, brighter and fertile days.

Festivities will include a traditional decorated Maypole outside, fresh floral wreath making, Scandanavian music, and the family’s favorite Midsommar dishes prepared by Matriarch Susanne Fullerton. As part of the celebration, the Fullertons are opening up the wine library and will be pouring a special rosé vertical featuring Three Otters Rosé ‘15, ‘16, ‘17, ‘18, ‘19, and ‘20 vintages.

ABOUT FULLERTON WINES
Fullerton Wines explores the rich and varied AVAs of Oregon by expressing the distinct personality of each vineyard and vintage in the bottle. Founded in the Fullerton family garage in 2011, the winery is a deeply personal family collaboration. Winemaker Alex Fullerton first got into the industry when his father Eric suggested the career path while wine tasting in the Willamette Valley after Alex had just graduated from the University of Oregon in 2010. That conversation led to Alex having a harvest internship with Penner Ash Wine Cellars which started the very next day. When making their first vintage in 2011, Alex and Eric partnered with their good friend Roger Wallberg and made a few barrels of Pinot Noir. Despite the challenging vintage, the wine impressed and Fullerton Wines was born.
The Fullerton Wine Bar & Tasting Room is authentically Pacific Northwest with a Scandanavian heart that brings a taste of Oregon wine country to Portland. Guests come for hygge hospitality, wines that explore Oregon’s AVAs, and abundantly creative dishes. Opened in 2017, the Fullerton Wine Bar & Tasting Room is a cozy and welcoming gathering place for wine lovers to experience the breadth of Fullerton Wines’ selection while enjoying Chef Jamie Cady’s menu for an appetizer or a meal. Guests of the tasting room have the option to sit indoors or outdoors under the heated, covered dining areas.
