It happens tomorrow – and every first Friday – at Bella Casa Real Estate Group! Newberg Downtown Art Walk is the place to be to experience the amazing talent of our very own local artists as well as taste the fine wines our county has become world famous for. This Friday, August 5th from 5 – 9 pm we are absolutely thrilled to offer wine by Montinore Estate. The following story is taken from their website, www.montinore.com. Do yourself a favor and come on out! We think you’ll be back every month!
“Rudy Marchesi came to wine and to Montinore Estate via the Bronx and New Jersey. Guided by a passion that was instilled early on by his Italian grandparents, Rudy sought out Oregon as a place that enabled creativity and, with careful coaxing, could grow grapes capable of delivering wine showcasing the truest expression of the land where it was grown. A place where one could, within the estate, grow the grapes, make the wine and send it out into the world.
Rudy became proprietor of the 230 acre farm in 2005 after many years overseeing operations and as the vineyard consultant. Taking his experience as a winegrower, winemaker and wholesale distributor full circle, he returned back to the land, with a mission to make wine from the ground up.
Today, Rudy presides over the estate with daughter Kristin, who is leading the second generation forward as Managing Director. Together, they work with the vineyard crew to nurture the land, and with the winemakers to craft wines expressive of the rolling hills and cool breezes of the North Willamette Valley, nestled at the foothills of the Coast Range outside Forest Grove, OR.
All are firmly rooted in the values of a well-lived life, one that includes the enjoyment of food and wine with friends and family.
Montinore wines are crafted for the dinner table, featuring fresh and lively flavors that give immediate satisfaction, but also are built with structure to age.
The wines reflect the thrill Rudy receives “in the simplicity of artistry.” They are a celebration of a place and a culture where wine is part of the everyday.”
On the first Friday of every month the very best of local art is on display – all in one centralized location! You’ll see talent that has been encouraged and developed by our very own landscape – the vineyards, the mountains, the buildings, the people… It’s nothing short of inspiring. And although the art is the reason we gather, it gives an opportunity for tasting fantastic local wines and engaging with others our community. You won’t be disappointed if you do come out for a few hours. You’ll be surprised by how much fun it is and impressed by everything that Yamhill County has to offer. We look forward to meeting you at Bella Casa Real Estate Group!
