• Abbey Creek has been on my radar for quite a few years now. I have been waiting for a visit and it was a great experience. Bertony himself poured for my wife and I. He makes the wine. He shapes the menu. He curates the playlists. Yeah… he knows his vision and he is real about it. I have met and tasted with many self-taught winemakers but they rarely have his chops for refining juice. Bertony refuses to be bound by rules, narratives or paradigms. I think the only thing that holds him back is there are only 24 hours in a day. You give him 27 and he would likely build a wine school for those outside the privilege and.or education that often comes with winemaking. By the way, my guy has a ridiculous Malbec in Willamette. Who does that? This is a huge recommend folks! It is outside of the “focus” of Willamette so make plans. It is well worth the adventure. On my next visit to Portland, I plan to visit his PDX location. I became an instant fan.”
