What's happening on The Vineyard?

there is a buzz in the air at phelps creek vineyards!!

swarm of roaming honeybees selected a Pinot Noir vine in our Upper East Slope to rest.

 Upon his daily check of the vines, Irineo spotted the huddled mass and suggested we contact our neighbor John, a Beekeeper.

 The guys put on their beekeeping garb and placed a bee box below the swarm. Then they gently shook the trellising wire and the Queen worked her way out of the bottom of the mass, plopping down into the box. “She’s just looking for a new, more spacious home” explained John.

Mara Sleeter came to us in May from Portland, where she studies International Affairs and Economics at Lewis & Clark College. She works directly with the Queen Bee (otherwise known as Lynette) in marketing and business, as well as co-leading the Ultimate Wine Country Experience tours. In her time off, Mara enjoys hiking the Gorge, as well as attempting to coax the Queen into joining her for yoga. She hopes to see some of our Wine Club members come along on one of her tours later in the summer!

Wesley Yu, known around here as Wes, has become Phelps Creek “casual." Wes’s developing interest with wine stems from a worldly, multicultural upbringing. He spent 7 years abroad in Shanghai after a childhood spent in Los Angeles. His palate and exploration with the world of wine blends with an exposure to various cultures and cuisines around the world. Wes finds it fascinating how almost all cultures find some way to incorporate wine, alcohol, or other fermented beverages into their cuisine. After a hard week under Lynette's “wing”, you might even find a single malt whiskey in his glass. Coming to us from Oregon State’s BioResource Research program, in the College of Agriculture, Wes is eager for Bill’s mentoring in the science and art of winemaking.
