The Carlton Based Winery is Celebrating the Opening of their New Hospitality Center by Offering a Special Cuvée that Benefits the Local Community

Carlton, OR ♦ Flâneur Winery of Carlton is set to make history this September by opening a full-service wine tasting and hospitality center in a rehabilitated, 125-year-old Grain Elevator.  To celebrate the opening of Flâneur Wines at the Carlton Grain Elevator, the up-and-coming winery will be offering 600 magnums of Pinot Noir from the 2017 vintage, crafted by winemaker Grant Coulter, as a special bottling that they have fittingly named Cuvée for a Cause.  One-third of the proceeds from the sale of this special celebratory offering will be donated to Yamhill Carlton Together Cares (www.yctogethercares.com/), a local non-profit that provides opportunities for the youth and families of Yamhill and Carlton.

“Everyone in the community has been so supportive of our efforts to revitalize the town’s iconic structure.  The town is literally abuzz because it has meant so much to the residents of Carlton,” says Marty Doerschlag, Founder & Owner of Flâneur Wines.  “We truly feel like we are a part of the community and this is our way of saying thank you for welcoming us with open arms.”

The limited, magnum-only offering is outfitted with a replica of Carlton’s newest painted mural; one that adorns the south side of the future new home of the winery’s experiencesBoasting the tagline – Experience Art in Everyday Life – it was created as an homage to the mural that Ken Wright placed on the north side of the adjacent tower over ten years prior.  However, instead of paying tribute to the Carlton days of the past, this new mural focuses squarely on the future of Carlton and the surrounding high-quality winemaking region.

Destined to be a collector’s item, the limited production 1.5L Magnum retails for $150 and is 100% Pinot Noir from Flaneur’s La Belle Promenade & Flanerie Estate Vineyards in addition to the storied X-Novo Vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills.  In total, when all bottles are sold, the charitable donation will translate to upwards of $30,000 for the local charity and the residents of Yamhill County. This limited bottling will be released the first weekend in September.  Those interested should contact Flaneur Wines to reserve bottles while they last.  Contact us via email at [email protected] or call 503.899.4120 to secure yours today!
