Wine club events at CedarCreek Estate Winery are always so fun! We’ve been members for several years now, and they have really started to pull out all the stops. The wine club offers free shipping, but we always pick up our wine from the winery. We never know what to expect when doing our wine pickup, because it’s been different each time. This event involved a golf cart and we got to visit parts of the vineyard we’ve never seen before.
For this Member Exclusive Experience at CedarCreek Estate Winery, you had to book a time slot for your pickup, and it was nice that it was one household per time slot. We got a “tour guide” or ambassador to take us around to the various stations. We started on the 2020 vintage of Sauvignon Blanc. It was fresh, bright, herbaceous, reminiscent of Marlborough style SB. A small percent of this wine was aged in oak, which is not common for Sauvignon Blanc.
After the first tasting station, our guide took us by golf cart to the upper area of the winery. Here we got to visit the chickens and learn about the composting program at the vineyard. Then we headed into the vineyard to try Pinot Noirs from their new collection called Aspect. The last stop was in the building above the back parking lot where we got to try the Pinot Gris and learned about the beehives. We got to revisit one more wine, so we chose the Aspect Pinot Noir. They served us in the Aspect House, a members-only area.
It’s fun to reflect on how much CedarCreek has changed over the last few years. When we first joined, the tasting room was very rustic and quaint. Now, they have some giant structures like the new tasting room, restaurant, and Aspect House. I love the style and design, and definitely want to incorporate some of the elements into our own home.
