Patty was an extraordinary person who did things because she always thought she could do them. She accomplished so much through talent, hard work, passion and the belief that she was doing the right thing, or at the least, the best that she could. I know it is one of the main reasons the winery worked out even at times when things were really difficult. I know that is why so many people have found inspiration in her story, her work, her wines, her laughter, her words and her kind soul.
We hope that this bottle of Pinot Noir provides the excellence of character you all have come to expect from our wines. This wine will provide a vehicle for remembering her fondly for the moments of joy and inspiration she brought to so many people, even if she was mostly unaware of her impact at the time. We hope that the photo on the label captures the essence of her and her ongoing impact on this winery, the people who work here and the Oregon wine community as a whole. She’s still around, and while we may not be able to see her, we know that she’s always up to something. Thank you all for your support over the years. Patty’s true talent was creating families, and she created a huge one here with this winery. -Jim Anderson & PGC Team
