    Bells Up Winery ( will herald the holiday season with a Wine Country Thanksgiving open house event. The winery will be open to the public from noon to 4:00 p.m. the weekend before Thanksgiving, Saturday and Sunday (November 21 and 22), as well as immediately after Thanksgiving, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (November 27, 28 and 29).

    Located on Chehalem Mountain, Bells Up Winery is housed in a renovated pole barn at 27895 Northeast Bell Road at the intersection of Zimri Drive. Tastings are $15 per person, deducted from a $75 purchase. Members of Bells Up’s Fanfare Club enjoy complimentary tastings throughout the open house event.

    Guests will enjoy a sensory feast, featuring three of Bells Up Winery’s inaugural, handcrafted vintages paired with light fare and spectacular views from the tasting room. During the open house, owner and winemaker David Specter will pour:

    • 2014 Rhapsody Pinot Blanc
    • 2014 Prelude Rosé of Pinot Noir
    • 2013 Titan Pinot Noir

    The label is Newberg’s newest micro-boutique winery, producing 400 cases annually, and is usually open only by appointment. Bells Up produces Oregon Pinot Noir from grapes sourced from micro-growers located on the northern side of the Willamette Valley. It also offers a small selection of other Oregon-grown and produced vintages.

    The name “Bells Up” is a reference to a dramatic moment in classical music where the composer instructs French horn players to lift the bells of their instruments upward and project their sound with maximum intensity. Specter, a French horn player who performed in bands and symphonic groups throughout high school and college, says the winery is his “Bells Up” moment.
