Vidon Vineyard announces new name, Compris Vineyard, hosting celebratory events over Memorial Day weekend
NEWBERG, Ore. (May 4, 2022) – Vidon Vineyard
has announced a new name for its established winery, Compris Vineyard. The winery will celebrate with special tasting menus and events from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, over Memorial Day weekend.
The Vidon Vineyard team made the collective decision to change their name to reflect their mission and values, striving to create a more sustainable, inclusive and equitable community through wine. Known for Syrah and Tempranillo in addition to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the vineyard will be releasing its first wine under the Compris label over Memorial Day weekend, a savory 2021 Rosé of Tempranillo.
To create the new logo and wine labels, the Vidon team underwent an incredible rebranding process with Murmur Creative agency. The Compris wine labels are expertly designed to capture the soul of the property along with the winery’s mission, with the Rosé of Tempranillo label highlighting the destination’s bird population, flowers and Willamette Valley skies.
Compris’ Memorial Day weekend events will offer wine tastings, live jazz music, and bites from Biscuits & Pickles
. Tickets include one glass of Rosé of Tempranillo; 2018 Estate Chardonnay; or 2017 3-clones Pinot Noir; and food for $40 each, available here
. In honor of Oregon Wine Month during May, Compris will also offer a Heritage Wine Bundle, including 2018 Estate Chardonnay, 2017 3-Clones Pinot Noir, and two Vidon wine glasses. The bundle is available for $90 to pick up on-site or via shipping options through the website
Founded as Vidon Vineyard in 1999 by Vicki and Don Hagge, the winery has developed a tradition of thoughtful, minimal intervention winemaking and respect for the vineyard soil. Compris owners Dru and Erin Allen purchased the winery in November 2020 before appointing Tiquette Bramlett as President in May 2021, the first Black woman appointed to oversee a winery in the country, and founder of Our Legacy Harvested, a nonprofit supporting diversity in wine. The Compris team, including winemaker Dr. David Bellows, will be pouring wines throughout Memorial Day weekend.
“In the past couple of years, we’ve learned how to operate a winery and about the powerful connections that can be made through wine,” said Dru Allen. “We’ve made it through our first harvest season and have focused on building connections through hosting events, including a “Raising the Temp!” Oregon Tempranillo festival in October, which brought together 12 Oregon wineries. We’re looking forward to building the Compris brand and our community coming together through wine.”
