The Iverson family has been farming in Clackamas County near Woodburn, Ore., for decades, and these proud Oregon State Beavers added wine grapes to their production for more than a 100 crops starting in 2009. This Pinot Noir, crafted by talented Sean Allen of Pudding River Wine Cellars in Salem, is a product for their fourth commercial vintage. It’s fruit-forward with enticing tones strawberry, cranberry-rhubarb, boysenberry and dried cherries. The structure is clean, smooth, juicy and long, lending itself to pasta and grilled meats. The Iversons also operate Red Barn Hemp, creating estate CBD products. As a result, Wooden Shoe is among the few along the Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail to operate a tasting room that’s open daily. And from late March to early May, the Iversons will play host to their annual Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival.
