We will jump to a past International Pinot Noir Celebration today!
We are honored and fortunate to have been chosen again as one of the wineries at IPNC July 26-27-28 at Linfield University in McMinnville. (We'll be helping represent the Home Team among wineries from France, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, California and, of course, Oregon!)
Through the years, we've attended most of the celebrations, either as a winery or as consumers. Each one, from the very first in 1987, has been an unbelievable opportunity to learn and mingle and enjoy the social interactions that wine, and particularly pinot noir, make possible.
Tickets are still available for the whole weekend or for some individual events, like the Salmon Bake, Sunday Brunch, or Passport to Pinot (at which you can sample all of the wines represented at IPNC 2024). 
If you've never attended, there's simply no better way to learn about wines in general and pinot noir in particular.
And it's more FUN than you can imagine!

Concerned about the heat?
We've moved all our tasting activities into the 60-degree barrel room for the next few days. These folks all had fun yesterday!
There's still a great view outside, and you can enjoy it in measured doses.
Eighteen wines open and ready to take the edge off your holiday or go home with you for more festivities.
We're open 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the July 4 holiday today right through Sunday.
Lots of award-winning wines, fun stories and friendly people.

Good news! We’re grateful and fortunate to have won a gold, three silvers and three bronze medals at the 2024 Sommeliers Choice Awards May 21 in Chicago.
The 1,500 wines from more than 50 countries were judged for food pairing, typicity (does this pinot noir taste like pinot noir?), quality, value and packaging. All of these are available today in our tasting room or to order online!

Our winners with judges’ comments:
2016 Sass Pinot Noir, Wild Winds Vineyard: Bright red fruits and spicy notes lead to a palate with good grip and a touch of stemminess, finishing fresh and perfect for pairing with duck and cherry sauce. Gold
2022 Sass Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley: Juicy and fresh ripe strawberry aromas with savory notes lead to a light, easy palate, finishing with a hint of dusty leafiness. Silver
2022 Sass Pinot Gris, Yakima Valley: Bright citrus and fresh orchard fruit aromas lead to a balanced palate with crisp acidity, herbal tones, and a savory, complicated finish typical of Pacific Northwest Pinot Gris. Silver
2022 Sass Gamay Noir Rose: Bright and tart red fruit with bitter orange zest aromas lead to a palate with dusty road tannins and a tart, slightly bitter finish. Silver
2017 Sass Pinot Noir, Vieux Amis: Fresh aromas of ripe red fruits and oak lead to a fresh palate that pairs well with meat, finishing with a touch of bitterness. Bronze
2021 Sass Catharina (Pinot blanc, Gewurztraminer, Riesling): Membrillo paste (We had to look it up, too!), candied orange, and winter spice aromas lead to an exotic palate of sour fruit, finishing with a lingering, savory bitterness. Bronze
2021 Sass Gamay Noir: Cherry lozenge, wild strawberry, and anise aromas lead to a fresh palate, finishing juicy and balanced, with a great value for money. Bronze

It's Competition Season again, and we are thankful that we are doing well!
All of the wines pictured here won awards from either the Sunset International Wine Competition or the Oregon Wine Competition in Seattle.
Among the highlights: Double Gold and another medal for 2021 Gamay Noir and gold for 2022 Albarino; and medals for 2021 Catharina white blend, 2021 Pinot Blanc, 2021 Sauvignon Blanc, 2022 Gamay Noir Rose, 2016 Pinot Noir, Wild Winds and 2017 Pinot Noir, Vieux Amis. 
The important thing is that you can still purchase these wines from the winery, but they are in short supply and will go fast.
Come on out to Sass Winery, open 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
