Melon? Are we talking cantaloupe, water, musk, or what?! Melon the grape, often referred to by its longer name Melon de Bourgogne, is so rare in the Pacific Northwest that we wouldn’t hold it against anyone for questioning the fruit origin of the wine. Bow & Arrow’s take on Melon is equal parts rich (from aging on lees) and bright, an excellent pair for holiday oysters or with a salad or hey, why not have a glass before dinner?
Bow & Arrow, our downstairs neighbor in The Bindery building, is far from your typical Oregon winery. Instead of focusing on Pinot noir (and Pinot gris), they search the state for great vineyard sources of Gamay, Melon, Sauvignon blanc, and Cabernet Franc. They just might take over the world using tongue-in-cheek wine names, ultra-modest prices, and lip-smacking wines.
Purple Wine Company, Inc., a California limited liability company, and its AVALON brand are not in any way affiliated with Avalon Wine, Inc, an Oregon corporation, or Avalon Wine's store at its physical location in Oregon.
