April 2024 Newsletter

April 1, 2024 |

The sun rises over the oldest Pinot noir vines at Compris Vineyard, with spring fog starting to lift through the surrounding trees.

Dear Compris Family and Friends,

It's officially spring and we are here for it! The vines are perking up with this spring weather and we excited that another vintage is underway. While the years seem to fly by anymore, the growth cycle of our vineyard thankfully helps to keep us in check and solidly present with all that surrounds us.

Venture out to wine country this month! Everything is in growth mode and it's a joy to be able to sit on the overlook when the weather is clear. If it happens to be a rainy day, we'll have you covered, warm, and dry under the gazebo, on the crush pad, or indoors. The birds are happily chirping and singing, providing an ideal soundtrack for wine sipping. Come on out and soak up the vineyard vibes and views with us!

We appreciate your continued support in allowing us to live out our collective dream of growing grapes and community! ~The Compris Crew

What's in a song?

This month’s music intro is a special call out to one of our wines being released for the first time, Drum & Fife. We feel that this Pommard clone Pinot noir is the baseline of our vineyard's song. With its rustic, bold, and earthy notes, it holds some of our favorite Pinot noir characteristics. Inspired by the drum line in The Smashing Pumpkins song "Drum + Fife", we'll be tapping a beat while we sip on this elegantly structured wine. Want to experience what we're talking about? Come on out!

Join Us for Our Anniversary Celebration

Please join us in celebrating Compris' second trip around the sun on Saturday, May 25th! We are so appreciative of our community. We cannot wait to welcome our Compris friends and family, as well as friends yet-to-be, at this Memorial Weekend event. Food, wine, and good vibes will be on hand! Let's kick-off this unofficial start to summer together - we hope to see you here!

Celebrating Earth Day

The team at Compris Vineyard thoroughly enjoys being in nature, whether that’s out in the vineyard or on a hike. It’s important to us to encourage everyone, especially kids, to get outdoors and learn about nature, our planet, and everything it provides us. We feel that when we’re actively enjoying nature, it affords us the ability to reset and really appreciate our surroundings, reminding us of how important it is to take care of Mother Earth. Compris is constantly looking for ways as to how we can better support our land and community by being proactive and making sustainable choices.

We have chosen to support Outdoor Education Adventures and their mission in honor of Earth Day and Earth Day Oregon 2024 because what they do to educate kids through experiences, knowledge, and learned skills, grows their own special connection with our planet, and is imperative for future generations. While Earth Day is specifically celebrated on April 22nd, we truly feel that every day is Earth Day.

For Our Club Members

We thoroughly enjoyed hosting our wine club members at the vineyard last month! With live music from Moorland Coyote, we were sipping and swaying while enjoying our delicious, seasonally inspired food bites from Caballero's Catering. It was incredibly special to be pouring, laughing, and cheering with one another. Thankful for our growing community!

We are partnering with some nearby wineries and offering a Spring Club Share for the entire month of April, exclusively for our wine club members! Come to Compris to pick up your club share card and use it at any of the listed wineries for a complimentary wine tasting. We can't wait for you to meet our friends!

By collaborating with law enforcement agencies, mental heath agencies, and crime victim services, they are able to compassionately reduce additional trauma. Their medical and forensic approach includes thorough medical exams and interviews in a child-friendly environment, designed to ease the investigation and treatment process for children and their families. Juliette's House also offers trauma recovery services, providing behavioral health support through evidence-based practices and educational groups for children, non-offending caregivers, and adult abuse survivors.
