Ten Years in Oregon – A Decade of Discovery

vine-lives-frontA little over a year ago, Cila Warncke knocked on our door just as we were setting up for Memorial Day wine tasting.  She asked if she could interview us for a book she was writing about Oregon Wine Pioneers.  Admittedly I was a little skeptical because we had already been solicited for several “book deals”, where we were expected to pay a hefty price to have our winery written about, and also I couldn’t imagine why she would consider us as Wine Pioneers.  Mark however jumped at the chance to get a respite from housekeeping duties and gave Cila a tour of his true passion – our vineyard and winery.

When they returned Cila stayed for awhile and tasted our wines before leaving.  Afterwards I asked Mark whether he thought she would really write a book and he said, “Who knows?  But if she does, it will be great publicity for us.”

Well, long story short…she did write a fabulous book and the first chapter is about Bjornson Vineyard.  Cila did an amazing job of capturing our story.  Even after the book had been published, I still had trouble considering myself an Oregon Wine Pioneer.  But then I started thinking.  We moved to Oregon ten years ago with a dream of buying some land and planting a vineyard.  Since then, we have cleared our land, planted the vines, learned to farm, made exceptional wine, and built a winery.  Some of it was easy, a lot of it was really hard.  All of it required courage, ingenuity and tenacity – attributes of any pioneer.

The last ten years in Oregon have been some of the most difficult yet satisfying years of our lives – a decade of discovery.  Stop by this Saturday, November 21, 11-5 to celebrate this milestone, meet Author Cila Warncke for a book signing, and taste some amazing wines.  We’d love to see you!
