Salem SJ Article- blueberry pie & RoxyAnn Late Harvest Viognier

The Salem Statesman Journal just gave us a nice review in pairing our Late Harvest Viognier with blueberry pie on June 17th.

Pairing: Blueberry Pie

— Annette Solomon

June 17, 2009
The perfect accompaniment to a pie is a delicate, un-oaked,
late-harvest, white wine that isn’t too sweet. RoxyAnn Winery,
in Southern Oregon, produces a prime example of such a
late-harvest viognier. The wine’s flavors of nutmeg and
cinnamon echo the warm spices in the dessert, while the fruit
flavors do not overpower the berries.

2009 International Eastern Wine Competition (IEWC)

Now in its 33rd year, the IEWC is one of the oldest and largest competitions in the United States, held each May in the Finger Lakes region of New York. To broaden the field, wines from home winemakers are now accepted. In 2008, wineries from 13 countries, including 38 American states and three Canadian provinces, submitted over 2,200 entries from which judges granted 71 Double Gold, 133 Gold, 658 Silver and 762 Bronze medals.

The IEWC awards five Best of Category wines (red, white, sparkling, dessert and fruit) as well as the winner and four finalists of the Riesling Championship.

The IEWC added a Riesling Championship in 2001. All Rieslings entered in the IEWC are judged in one of four sweetness grades: dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet and sweet. The four Best of Class winners then compete for the Riesling Champion award.

Select Mobile Bottlers bottles 2008 Pinot gris

Mobile Bottler Comes to RoxyAnn

We just finished using a mobile bottling trailer from Select Mobile Bottlers of Napa, CA.  The automated line ran great and was a blast to watch.

Mobile bottling give us a chance to bottle in a fast, efficient way, with minimum time elapsing between the first bottle and the last, resulting in a more consistent bottle of wine throughout. Quality is our first and foremost consideration.  The mobile bottling line insures that each bottle of RoxyAnn wine will be consistent from start to finish, resulting in a better wine for you!

In addition, the mobile bottling line allows us to save time, space and money.  The cost of the bottling line is offset by the savings in man-hours (labor), as the line can process in a single day what normally would takes days.
