Stonewood Wine Merchants is pleased to announce it has joined the ambassador program of Willamette Valley Vineyards based in Turner (Oregon). In this capacity we will be able to provide access to WVV offerings both as a concierge service as well as direct to consumer channel for our community in the Midwest and nationwide.
WVV has been in operations for over 40 years producing some of the area’s best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris varietals across all Willamette Valley American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). Founder, Jim Bernau, purchased the Estate site in 1983 and cleared away the old pioneer plum orchard hidden in Scotch broom and blackberry vines. The rest as they say is history.
We will also work with WVV retail and distribution arms to provide education and food pairing recommendations as needed and as available. Beginning October of this year we will begin to rotate WVV offerings into wine tasting flights and our concierge offerings, soon to be followed with facilitated direct to consumer and wine club access. This will compliment our offerings from California and elsewhere from the American west to our Stonewood Wine community.
