At small world wine company we had an exciting year full of new beginnings. The official launch party of Compton Family Wines started the year. Our Spindrift Cellars brand held many fun events including the Valentine’s Date with a Vue, which was a wine dinner held at the Vue Corvallis. We also released a brand new wine under a new brand…
In November, we released the 2017 SEA O2 Sparkling Rosé wine, our first bubbles ever and the first of our new brand. This “Pinot Blend” made of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc is crisp and dry and has already received positive reviews, including being chosen as a Cellar Selection by the Oregon Wine Press for the month of December. Look for more from this brand in 2019 and beyond!
Compton Wine Club started in March and has been rapidly growing since. In September we had a delightful club event at the Dizzy Hen in Philomath. Chef JC created some exquisite gourmet dishes to pair with the Compton wines.
Bound up by oak when first poured, this posh pinot has a heavy lining of toffee and spice, squaring off the black-cherry flavors with a firm grip. After a day, that grip relents, and the wine’s cherry-cola flavors take on a more elegant, seamless texture.
Fresh and attractive violets on the nose here with a supple and juicy array of very fresh red cherries that flow to the palate, where they are delivered amid succulent, upbeat tannins. Drink or hold.
Spindrift Cellars 2016 OSU Woodhall Vineyard Pinot Noir 93 rating
A slightly savory edge to the nose of this earthy and ripe, red plum-fruited pinot. The palate has a very fresh, raspberry and red-plum core with a silky and suave build to the cedary, red cherry- flavored finish. Drink now.
One of the most common questions we receive from both guests and wine club members is, “where can you guys ship to?” Well, we are happy to announce that Small World Wine will soon be able to ship to over 40 states with VinoShipper. We are looking forward to shipping wine direct to more customers and their friends and family through the use of the secure shopping cart tool. More info to come on this new service soon!
