Memorial Day – New Releases and Wine Club Pickup Weekend!
Welcome to May! In case you didn’t notice, it’s Oregon Wine Month! The focus on locally made wines hits full stride this month and we here at Viola Wine Cellars are doing all we can to spread the Oregon wine love near and far.
To start things off, we’re having a Full Case Sale at the Tasting Room this Friday and Saturday.
Then on Sunday, the PDX Urban Wineries Association, with a record 16 member wineries, hosts its big annual tasting at Seven Bridges Winery where you’ll be able to taste from 32 different offerings all produced right here within the city of Portland!
And then there’s the excitement of another t-shirt creation, this time celebrating the lovely copper color of our Ramato Pinot Grigio.
Finally, in addition to regular hours all month in the tasting room where we’ll be pouring interesting flights that change with the weather – from white to pink to red selections – we’ll finish off the month with our traditional Memorial Day Weekend open-house bash, with new releases, tasting room and winery hours plus Wine Club Summer selections.
Phew – I’m already exhausted. And here we go – all the 411 is below. Hope to see you sometime thins month!

RAMATO T-SHIRTS Now On Sale!
Copper is the new pink. You heard it here first! The wave of Ramato-style Pinot Grigio is taking over the Oregon winemaking scene and we are thrilled once again with the success of our 2016 release from the Allegre Vineyard. While that wine is getting near the end of its run already, you can still snag some and also keep the spirit alive even when the wine runs out by sporting one of these tasty t-shirts. Stop in the tasting room to find your size and take one home today!
