Posted on April 19, 2017

NEWBERG, OR (April 18, 2017) — Bells Up Winery invites the public to experience its new winery porch addition and just-released Prelude Rosé of Pinot Noir during two consecutive open house weekends in May. Rarely open to the public, the winery’s estate tasting room will welcome guests without an appointment from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. the weekend before (May 20-21) and the weekend of Memorial Day (May 27, 28 and 29).

Tastings are $15 per person, deducted from a $75 purchase. Members of Bells Up’s Fanfare Club enjoy complimentary tastings throughout the event. Guests will enjoy four of Bells Up Winery’s handcrafted wines, paired with light fare and spectacular views of the Willamette Valley from the new porch. Owner and winemaker David Specter will pour:

  • 2016 Prelude Rosé of Pinot Noir (Released April 1, 2017)
  • 2013 Titan Pinot Noir (91 points: Washington Wine Blog & International Wine Report, Feb. 2017)
  • 2014 Titan Pinot Noir (91 points: Washington Wine Blog & International Wine Report, Feb. 2017; “Outstanding!” by Great Northwest Wine, Sept. 2016; Silver at Great Northwest Wine Invitational, Oct. 2016)
  • 2014 Firebird Syrah (Only a few cases remaining)

Located in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, Bells Up Winery is at 27895 NE Bell Road at the intersection of Zimri Drive. In its third year of operation, the label is one of Newberg’s newest micro-boutique wineries—making approximately 400 cases annually—and is always open by appointment.

Bells Up composes handcrafted, classically-styled Oregon Pinot Noir with grapes sourced primarily from micro-growers located on the northern side of the Willamette Valley. It also offers a small selection of other Oregon-grown and produced varietals. The winery name refers to a dramatic moment in classical music in which French horn players lift their instruments’ bells upward to project their sound with maximum intensity. Specter, a French horn player who performed in bands and symphonic groups throughout high school and college, says the winery is his “Bells Up” moment.
