Husband and wife, Stewart Boedecker and Athena Pappas, started Boedecker Cellars in 2003 and the pair are committed to performing all winery tasks together including winemaking, cellar management, sales and everything in between. Fruit is sourced from up to ten different vineyards. An urban winery in NW Portland is shared with Grochau Cellars.
Boedecker is a Pinot Noir specialist and releases two blends (Stewart, crafted in Stewart's preferred style which is red-fruited, full of acidity and soft tannins reflective of Pommard and Wädenswil clones, and Athena, crafted in Athena's style which is black-fruited, heartier with more tannins and spice rooted in Dijon clones) and three vineyard-designates (Carlton Hill, Cherry Grove and Stoller). The wines are made using sustainable winemaking practices, fermented in small lots, aged over 18 months in French oak, and closed with screw caps. Wines are also produced under the Pappas Wine Co. label.
The wines are available online. The winery's tasting room, located on the fringe of Portland's NW Industrial District, is open each weekend from 1:00 to 5:00
Articles About Boedecker Cellars
2007 Boedecker Cellars Carlton Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir
Spent 20 months in seasoned oak and racked into neutral barrels and aged off the lees for another 9 months. · Very pretty nose offering scents of fresh dark red raspberries and strawberries with a hint of tobacco. Very soft in the mouth, with delicious flavors of plum and berries, lifted by bright acidity. The 2007 vintage was very underrated in Oregon and many wines, such as this one, are great now. Very good. Reviewed August 23, 2012 ARTICLE »
