REEDSPORT — Join Mindpower Gallery 5-7 p.m. Friday, May 10 for wine tasting with MarshAnne Landing Winery of Oakland, Ore.
Wine tasting is free, and you can purchase wine by the glass or by the bottle. Wander around the gallery with its maze of rooms featuring local and regional artist’s.
MarshAnne Landing, a small family-run winery and vineyard located in the heart of the Umpqua Valley in southern Oregon: just 2 hours from Crater Lake; 20 minutes north of Roseburg; and just 3 miles off I-5; and one of the vineyards/wineries in the Umpqua Valley that are Stem-to-Stem operations.
MarshAnne grows all their own grapes on their 17 acre vineyard and only produces estate wine. Their goal is to produce food-friendly out of this world wines from grapes traditionally grown in the Rhone and Bordeaux regions of France. Syrah, Grenache, Viognier, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, and Cabernet Franc have all been given a home in their vineyard located at a former stagecoach stop north of Roseburg, Ore.
This venture began in 1996 with the purchase of a cattle ranch in the Umpqua Valley. Three years later 12,000 grafted vines representing 10 varieties of grapes were delivered and a planting party with 17 friends helped MarshAnne Landing Winery plant 14 miles of vineyard rows. They began serving wine in 2001. www.marshannelanding.com
