Hard to Get Wines
For Local Customers Only

Avalon Wine

Did you know that customers come from Alaska to Texas to Washington DC to visit Avalon? They come for the hard to get, highly coveted Oregon and Washington wines we specialize in on our website.

When we get very limited amounts of those coveted wines, we sell them locally. We don't put them on our website but save them for our Corvallis area customers.

In a scan of our shelves today, we found long sold out Van Duzer Single Block Pinot noirs, Raptor Ridge older vintage Pinot noirs, the extremely gone Abeja Reserve Cabernet 03 and older vintage Cadence reds, Zerba "Wild Thing", Mark Ryan "Gunmetal", and Three Rivers Cabernet "Champoux" 02. These are wines Wine Spectator and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate have singled out as the very best of the Northwest.

This weekend, we're offering the just released Evesham Wood white wines,
so in demand that they're only available to local customers.

Evesham WoodEvesham Wood White Wines are Here!
Russ Raney makes some of the best wines in Oregon, period.  In the months between his two Pinot Noir releases, we’re lucky to have the ’05 Evesham Wood Willamette Valley Chardonnay, the Le Puit Sec Chardonnay ’04 (Estate grown—and organic!)  and a great ’05 Pinot Gris/Gewurztraminer blend also from Evesham’s Estate fruit.  We’re only offering this to local customers, so come in and check out the Oregon treasure that is Evesham Wood.

New Arrivals: O’Reilly’s--A Great Oregon Pinot for $15!!!

For those of you who have stocked up on this wine in past vintages, stop reading and head to the store.  But just in case, the wine opens with a lovely nose of dried lavender, rose petals, and crushed red fruit, with a slight gamey edge. On the palate it's red cherry and raspberry, with strawberry notes that carry through to the finish. Soft tannins and mellow spice combine with good acidity to make this a superb value.

Winemaker David O'Reilly says: "this is unequivocally my favorite O'Reilly's since I started making it in 1997. I loved the '98 and the '01, but this wine beats them all."

David describes the wine as "unctuous, fruity, and full bodied - an indicator of the 2005 vintage. The wine is fruit forward with a beautiful acidity, a wine that people could stock up on and put away for everyday drinking for the next 5-6 years."
