Potter's Vineyard - Our Wine Sponsor for July, August & September

We are so pleased to announce a partnership between Art On Broadway Gallery and Potter's Vineyard in Newberg, Oregon. Potter's Vineyard will sponsor wine at our monthly receptions on July 12, August 9, and September 13. Stop by the gallery during these evening celebrations to enjoy a glass of wine while you visit with our artists and spend some time viewing the newest artwork.

Not only are Bill and Sandy Sanchez the owners of the vineyard, they are also artists with a passion for Clay Art, thus the name Potter's Vineyard.  Bill and Sandy are honored to carry on the legacy of winemaker and grower, Laura Volkman, in her pursuit of producing premium Pinot Noir. They purchased Laura's 5-acre estate in the fall of 2012, and produce their wine in a modern facility but with true old world practices of gently handling, free-run or soft pressing, gravity transfer and lees aging in French Oak.

You can find their wines at the best local restaurants and wine shops and grocery stores in the Portland Metro Area; and they invite you to visit them during special tasting events at the Vineyard during the weekends before and during Memorial Day, Labor Day and Thanksgiving to experience the convergence of premium 'old world'  Pinot Noir and classic 'hand crafter' Clay Art.
