|As I write this, the trees are starting to flower and leaves are now sprouting. So it just seems just shy of miraculous that I was only |
recently shooting for two different clients in the snow!
My photoshoot for Phelps Creek Vineyards a couple of weeks ago started with sitting in the back of the truck to help weigh it down in order to make it up the slippery and snowy road to the winery. It was definitely an adventurous start to the day! It was also the Club Member pick up party day and there was quite a bit of bit of buzz going on as well. Even with all that activity, I found them to be a warm and hospitable family.
I knew beforehand that a truck figured in as a part of the
winery’s identity, a gorgeous red International that at the time
was somewhat buried in the snow! I have a soft spot in my
heart for old vintage rigs and this one had to be featured.
While still a commercial pilot, Phelps Creek Vineyards has been Bob’s passion since the late 1980’s. That passion is evident in their lovely wines.
With a breathtaking view, the vineyard produces fruit that truly highlights the Burgundian style wines cultivated by their French winemaker Alexandrine Roy.
French winemaker, Alexandrine Roy is taking one last look before returning to France. She is the Director of Winemaking for Phelps Creek Winery bringing a Burgundian influence to the Oregon Pinot Noir.
