Review:

Sojourner Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills is the vineyard source for one of Owen Roe's best 2012 Pinot noirs (selling for $55). Jackalope delivers an outstanding value Pinot packed with dark-fruited intensity, adding raspberry, earth and floral accents. Like the Jackalope, it's a little rambunctious, a heartier Pinot for your winter enjoyment.

Corey Schuster makes wine at Southeast Wine Collective (SEWC) in Portland. Corey is a civil engineer turned winemaker. He worked the 2010 harvest at Owen Roe, then continued on as a part time cellar assistant and lab tech. In 2012 he purchased a small amount of Sojourner Vineyard fruit from David O'Reilly (Owen Roe) and moved into the SEWC, where he manages the tasting room. - Marcus

I've read all forms of "about us" pieces written by wineries, many of which fall a bit flat. I was very impressed Corey's short, candid, meaningful story: "Why Jackalope Wine Cellars? The jackalope has been a sort of totem for me for a long time. As a kid, my older cousin would write and send postcards from Nebraska, telling me all about the animal, swearing they were real. These memories formed a bond early, which gave me fond memories to treasure, as he passed away when I was in 8th grade. Fast forward to 2004: unsatisfied with my life as a civil engineer, I decided to make a drastic change and quit my job, sell my valuables, and travel. My gift to myself to start this journey was a jackalope tattoo on my right shoulder to join me on my adventures. And now, another turning point in my life: winemaker. The jackalope has become a special form of support for me and I want him featured prominently in this adventure. Thus, Jackalope Wine Cellars."
