Fall is upon us, and what better way to spend it than by enjoying the vibrant foliage of the Willamette Valley with a wine glass in hand. Just south of Eugene, Saginaw Vineyard has been offering high-quality wines since the early 90s.
Their historic farmstead includes antique grape, marionberry, apple, pear, cherry, plum and raspberry orchards. Fresh blueberries and marionberries are available during the summer, and can be picked by customers or by Saginaw Vineyard staff. Throughout the year, blueberries and marionberries are also available in the form of homemade jams or frozen berries.
One of the vineyard’s best-known products and specialties are their fruit wines, which they have been perfecting for decades, and produce under the Delight Valley Farms label. Current fruit wines are blueberry, blackberry port, red raspberry and white chocolate cherry. Prices vary depending on the selection. Both the blueberry and blackberry varieties are fortified, creating a port-style wine with an alcohol content of 19 to 20 percent. Not only are their fruit wines great to drink, but they can also be reduced and spiced to make the perfect fall dinner and dessert sauces.
Every Friday evening, Saginaw Vineyard hosts live music in the vineyard from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dinner is available for purchase, but guests are also welcome to bring their own picnic baskets. Fruit wine and other varieties are available during these events.
For the month of Sept., customers who bring in a copy of this article will receive a 10 percent discount on any wine purchase.
The summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Visit Saginaw Vineyard on Delight Valley School Road and stock up on your favorite wines for the upcoming fall and winter months. This Autumn, fall in love with Saginaw Vineyard.
