donations DOUBLED this year for the Willamette Cares Food Share program

Dear wine club members,

With your collaboration, we collected almost 100 lbs in food in November and December for the Oregon Food Bank, which is more than twice the amount we did last year. Nice work!

According to their story, “the Oregon Food Bank started off like most food banks did back in 1988 - that’s when Interagency Food Bank and Oregon Food Share merged to become Oregon Food Bank” and they “distributed USDA Commodity Supplemental Food to over 200 hunger-relief agencies.”

Today, as quoted directly from their website, “the Oregon Food Bank collects food from farmers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, individuals and government sources. They distribute that food through a Statewide Network of 21 Regional Food Banks and approximately 1,200 food assistance sites serving all of Oregon and Clark County, Washington.”

Hamacher Wines is proud to help aid their efforts in ending hunger in Oregon, but we couldn’t of done without your help. Thank you!

For more information, to donate or to find out how to get involved with the Oregon Food Bank, click here.

Stay tuned for additional opportunities with Hamacher Wines to give back to the community.

HELP US FEED OREGON THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

In collaboration with our industry partners and with the Oregon Food Bank, we are pleased to offer 15% off any Hamacher bottle purchase when you donate five or more non-perishable food items during the months of November and December. Members receive 25%.

Extra donations are encouraged and welcome, but incentives are redeemable one-time-only.

“As neighbors and members of the same communities, we share many of the same hopes and fears and we all want what’s best for our families. One of the fundamental differences between us is that some of us know where our next meal is coming from and some do not. Many struggle silently and make heart-wrenching decisions that nobody should have to make. The need for food is essential and immediate. Without the basic security of knowing when you will eat next it is difficult to focus on anything else. The daily fight to survive can consume your life.” - OREGON FOOD BANK

A QUIET CELLAR AFTER AN EXCEPTIONAL HARVEST

The dust always settles after Harvest and the activity level slows to a crawl in both the winery and the vineyards through the end of the year. Thankfully 2018 has show pretty nice weather bus far, so that the start of pruning in January was easy compared to the snow and ice of 2017.

As we enter February, we are starting to pull together the “early to bottle” wines from the 2017 Harvest. The first several weeks of the month will see racking and blending of the various tanks and barrels of Rosé and Riesling followed quickly with their bottling at the end of the month. They taste so good and promise that spring is not too far away!

Expect to see the Rosé in the Tasting Room soon!

It's hard to believe that we have already begun the work of the 2018 Vintage.

The cycle continues!

Cheers,
