Good Times in Summer

Mock Orange and Hot Cocoa Rose
I love this time of year.  It's been a beautiful summer so far.  We've been all around busy, the home, the garden, the market, and on the land (both at home and out on hikes in the gorge).

Tonight we'll be pouring our wines at Outta The Box (OTB) Auction, 360 NE 219th Ave in Gresham.  These are some really nice fun people, come check them out tonight.  Doors open at 5:30.  See more about them at

Saturday we'll have our wines at Creative Visions Landscapes.  They're doing a BBQ and backpack school supply drive, all are invited.  This should be a lot of fun too.  Their address is 9965 SE Orient Drive in Boring, OR.  See more about them at

Yesterday afternoon I met up with Amelia Salvador the new market manager this year from the Gresham Farmers Market.  Amelia's specialty is marketing and display, so cool.  She came out for a visit here at our place and we had a chance to brainstorm on some fun activities for later this summer into fall.

And we're looking at doing some classes out here.  More details to come.

Leaning Star Winery offers small batches of handcrafted wines.  Our winery is located on the outskirts of Gresham, Oregon, a short jaunt to the freeways in all directions. Learn more about Leaning Star Winery or send us an email and contact us.
