It only took us since the beginning of the internet…

From John, August 29th, 2011

Hell-o new WEB site for Cameron Winery! We have been working on you for a while now but finally you are ready to reveal yourself.

What you will NOT get on this web site is an ability to purchase wines directly from the winery because we are intent on devoting our time and talents to growing grapes and making wine and leaving the selling part to far more able people in the world of retail. Therefore, you will quickly note that when you click on buying wine, you will be connected to a list of links for retail outlets that carry our wine. If you are a retail outlet in an out-of-state market that carries our wine and you do not find a link to you on this web site, please alert us to that fact and we will put you on!

The new Web site is primarily intended to be informational (and entertaining…in fact sometimes more entertaining than actually informational!). You will note that we are maintaining vineyard and cellar photo galleries and blogs regarding everything that goes on at Cameron Winery (this will include reports on the goats, chickens, geese…Fois and Gras, our honey bees, Guido…the winery policeman, and the human component, as well as the more mundane aspects of growing grapes and making and aging pinot noir, chardonnay, and more!).

There might be occasional videos along with the changing photo gallery and I guarantee that there will be new things to learn whenever you check on this site. Your comments are always welcome, even if they are not appreciated!

Fire and Wine

Our vineyards were edging relatively close to ripeness as smoke from the fires in the Cascade foothills hit the Willamette Valley on Sept 8. So we waited anxiously as the sun disappeared and the air cooled and the grape vines went into a kind of dormancy. Thankfully, on the night of September 17th an epic storm out of the North Pacific finally came rolling in with thunder and lightening and what turned out to be a massive amount of rain which helped extinguish the fires and renew our hopes for the coming vintage.

FIELD GRAFTING AT CLOS ELECTRIQUE

Armed with a You Tube video, 2 grafting knives, and advice from an old hand at grafting apples, we learned a field grafting process called t-budding. By grafting scion wood from our stellar Clos Electrique Pinot noir clones onto inferior Dijon clone vines, we will harvest an entire new vineyard block of kick-ass old red Burgundy in just two years!
