2016 Silver Medal Winners: 2012 Winemaker's Barrel Select & Red Velvet 351



Dear Friends,


We have wonderful news! Our 2012 Winemaker's Barrel Select AND our Red Velvet 351 just won Silver Medals at the Oregon Wine Experience Competition in Jacksonville, OR. We are so thrilled to be able to share this news with all our winery friends!


Goodness! Where has the summer gone? It almost seems like kids were out of school just yesterday and now we see school buses darting all over town, a sure sign that summer is over. Here at the vineyard time hasn't stood still either - harvest is fast approaching, and earlier than usual! We anticipate mid-September to start moving on those grapes. The rows in the vineyard are looking beautiful and trimmed now that RJ has that awesome trimming attachment to give his arms a little break from the repetitive swinging.


And that brings up a reminder: We do not schedule Barrel Tastings with RJ during Harvest time (September 8th-23rd this year), and we wanted to make sure our friends were aware of this so there is no confusion.


And with that, I encourage you to read on in our newsletter to see what's happening here at Plum Hill Vineyards for the month of September!

Juanita Lint Announces Bid For Oregon House District 29

Small Business Owner And Chamber Executive Board Member Files For Washington County Swing Seat


Forest Grove, OR – Forest Grove small business owner and community leader Juanita Lint announced today that she will file as a Republican candidate for Oregon House District 29. Lint, who serves as Vice President of the Forest Grove/Cornelius Chamber of Commerce, made her announcement ahead of Tuesday’s primary election filing deadline.


“My husband and I have been blessed to be a part of this community for more than a decade,” said Lint. “But as Washington County continues to grow, I’m concerned that too many of our working families are being left behind. I’m running for the legislature because I want our community to continue to be a great place to find stable employment and raise a family, and help more Oregonians realize the American Dream.”


Lint has a long record as a job creator and civic leader. She has served on the board of the Forest Grove/Cornelius Chamber of Commerce since 2010, and currently serves as the organization’s vice president. Lint also provides a voice for the Washington County business community as a member of State Senator Chuck Riley’s Small Business Council.


“Juanita embodies the honesty and integrity we expect from our leaders,” said Washington County Commissioner Bob Terry. “She is a dedicated, hardworking public servant who understands the unique challenges facing Washington County and how to help working families in our community achieve success. Juanita is exactly the kind of advocate our community needs in Salem.”


Together, Juanita and her husband founded Plum Hill Vineyards in Gaston. The Lints built their winery from the ground up, working hand-in-hand to grow their business and develop an award-winning selection of wines. Mr. and Mrs. Lint have been recognized by several industry publications for their hand-crafted wines and their commitment to vineyard excellence. In addition to operating Plum Hill, Juanita serves on the board of the North Willamette Vintner’s Association and is a member of the Oregon Wine Grower’s Association and Wine America.


Prior to her decision to run for the Legislature, Lint served as an appointed member of the Metro board, Lutheran Women’s Missionary League council member, and Chair and Co-Chair of Western Washington County Tourism Committee.  Juanita and her husband have two children and three grandchildren.

WE are ranked one of the top 10 dog friendly wineries in the USA


Plum Hill Vineyard (Gaston, OR)

At Plum Hill Vineyard, dogs can keep their owner company in the tasting room and enjoy a biscuit or two while their owners are sampling the wines. For those dogs who can't stand to listen to their owners drone on about another wine, there is a small, fenced area for dogs to play. Each year, the winery participates in the Canines Uncorked Wine Tour, sponsored by the Oregon Humane Society. The event combines wine tasting for guests with dog-friendly activities and treats.


Travel Oregon gives us good marks for being dog friendly, too

Welcome to the dog days of summer — so named for gloriously sunny days and the ascension of the Dog Star in the night sky. Summer is an epic time to explore Oregon with your best four-legged friend. Don’t miss these great spots to roam, fetch, sit and stay this summer.

Bark Parks
Oregon’s dog parks go above and beyond your average fenced fetch patch. Bob Wenger Memorial Spray Park at Pine Nursery Park in Bend has a splash pad with fire hydrant-shaped water fountains and will eventually comprise 14 acres of off-leash happiness. In Troutdale, the Sandy River Delta offers 1,400 off-leash acres of wooded trails, open meadows and access to the Sandy and Columbia rivers. Plum Hill Vineyards in Gaston is often called most dog-friendly winery in Oregon. Pooches can chill on the patio or run off their energy in the adjacent dog run (with a genuine fire hydrant). On August 8, you and your dog can visit as part of Canines Uncorked, a fundraiser for the Oregon Humane Society.

Dining with Dogs
Relax on the patio with your pup at Rogue Ales Public House in Newport. While you peruse the beer menu, your pal can check out the canine fare. You might guess that Tin Shed in Portland loves dogs just from looking at their brunch menu (which includes dishes called the Fetch, Roll Over, Good Dog and the Stay). The beloved Alberta Street café also welcomes dogs on the outside eating area and has a pooch-specific menu. Curl up with your pup on the cozy patio at McMenamin’s at Old St. Francis in Bend. There’s no dog menu, but they’re happy to oblige if you want to order a steak for your dog like a recent guest did.

Hike and Swim
The 7-mile Ramona Falls Trail in the Mt. Hood Wilderness follows the Wild and Scenic Sandy River. The cascading waterfall offers a cooling spray for hot paws. Dillon Falls near Bend on the Deschutes River is a popular spot for river fetch. (Dogs are allowed off leash while in the water). Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park on the Coast has two lakes for swimming and miles of trails for exploring.

Beds for Heads (and Tails)
The Ace Hotel makes you feel like you’ve died and gone to hipster heaven with its vintage rooms, claw foot tubs and sprawling lobby bookended by a great café (Stumptown) and excellent bar and restaurant (Clyde Common). Your pup will feel that way too — fussed over by the front desk staff and welcomed at no extra cost. Things are a bit more lux at the Hotel Monaco, with your dog’s name on the welcome board, a plush bed, bowls to use during your stay, treats and cleanup bags — also at no charge. For something a bit more rustic and close to the beach and forest, check out pet-friendly yurts and cabins at 21 Oregon State Parks from Fort Stevens State Park to Sunset Beach State Park and from Prineville to Emigrant Springs.
