ANNOUNCING THE CREATION OF THE OROFINO PRESS!!! ADD IT TO YOUR “FAVORITES” LIST AND CHECK IN FOR ALL OF THE DETAILS ON THE 2011 CRUSH AND BEYOND! http://orofinovineyards.blogspot.com/
The Orofino Press
Orofino in the Similkameen Valley has created a blog that will follow the 2011 grape harvest from the vineyards to the barrels. Its not the glossy stuff created by the dozens of PR people they have hired but the everyday dirt on decisions that have to be made, the progression of the harvest and insights on making wine in the beautiful Similkameen Valley. Owners John and Virginia Weber along with their cellarhand Aaron Godard will post regular updates and pictures. What they are drinking, music they are listening to and maybe even the odd rant about the Saskatchewan Roughriders are all fair game. Its all things Orofino…
