Although many believe that Al Capone struck it rich by bootlegging alcohol during prohibition, he actually made his money through ingenuous compound interest and selling actual moonshine garnered from his supplier Vinnie “Celestial Body” Gambello. Start your own wine mythology with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two glasses of pinot noir and truffles for two at Left Coast Cellars in Rickreall (a $42 value).
Settled on 306 rolling acres of sustainable farmland in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Left Coast Cellars employs a combination of solar power and rain-water irrigation to cultivate the grapes used in their quality estate vintages. Relax in the tranquil setting of the vineyard’s tasting room as you and a companion sip on Left Coast Cellars' 2004 Suzanne's Estate Reserve pinot noir. This vintage red is defined by aromas of cherry cordial, prune, lavender, and custard, with subtle flavors of dried cherry, crème caramel, toasted nut, and wine. Enjoy this drinkable bouquet alongside three chocolate truffle desserts per person, featuring unique flavor combinations, such as marionberry and sage; mango and ginger with white chocolate; and black currant and grains of paradise, all locally handcrafted by luxury confectioner Extreme Chocolates. The 306-acre Left Coast Cellars estate encompasses rolling hills, a serene meadow, and a historic display of old-growth white oaks providing a pleasant environment for a romantic evening, special occasion, or discussion of your pet acorn’s wasted potential.
Left Coast Cellars has been featured in a number of press outlets including Oregon Wine Press, the Polk County Itemizer-Observer and Sip With Me!. Two of their wines received rave reviews in a 2009 issue of Wine Press Northwest:
- Excellent. Here's a rising young operation in Rickreall, Ore., that's beginning to consistently hit its stride. – Wine Press Northwest.
- Definitely worth mentioning, is Left Coast Cellars 2006 Chardonnay… complex and vivacious with flavors of lemon meringue pie, white peach, green apple, quince and vanilla skipping about my mouth. – Sip With Me!.
