This week's featured winery is Hawkins Cellars, presented by Elevage, making this TIS wine tasting debut. After spontaneously moving to Oregon in 2001, Thane Hawkins was immediately attracted not only to the Willamette Valley’s signature Pinot Noir, but to the land and the
people. After working a couple of harvests, Thane was given the opportunity to work with Chris Lubberstedt, who, after years at Willakenzie and Wine By Joe, had recently been hired as winemaker for Methven Family Vineyards. It was while working for Methven that Thane was presented the opportunity to produce a small quantity of his own wine. And thus, Hawkins Cellars was born.

Hawkins Cellars will be pouring the following wines at the TIS wine tasting:

  • 2007 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon -- Winner: Bronze Medal, 2010

  • Northwest Food and Wine Festival

  • 2007 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

  • 2009 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris -- Winner: Bronze Medal, San

  • Francisco International Wine Festival.

  • 2009 Columbia Valley Syrah

  • 2009 Columbia Valley Sangiovese
