oven Wineworks is truly a family affair and labor of love. With the help of extended family members, Elaina Spring, the winery’s designated ambassador, is a lot like a warm hug in human form. She exudes joy and happiness with every gesture, word and smile!

After her family banded together to purchase a 35-acre plot of land with 15 acres planted in grapevines in the northern portion of the Willamette Valley, Elaina went to work building the brand and finding all the old photos used on their wine labels. The grapevines on the estate are carefully tended to, growing into ripe grapes that eventually become wines with high acid and strong mineral notes. This particular wine was made by esteemed Michael Lundeen of Walnut City Wineworks but don’t be surprised if Elaine becomes the head winemaker some day.

The Woven Wineworks Pinot gris (No.4) had aromas of tart lemons and lovely white flowers with prominent minerality and many citrus flavors, including lemons, mandarin oranges and lemon curd. It had a luscious mouthfeel, zippy acidity and a long finish. You really could taste the love that went into each bottle of their wine.

We would suggest pairing this Pinot gris with a summer salad, crab legs or pan fried trout with lemon.

SRP $20.
