Last week, I had the pleasure of joining Scott and Dana Frank and a merry band of volunteers to pick grapes at the Borgo Pass Vineyard in the Willamette Valley. We were picking Cabernet Sauvignon from 40 year old vines. This is the first year the Franks were able to get this fruit from Borgo Pass. The vineyard is located just west of Monroe, OR about a half an hour south of Corvallis. Grower Mark Dubose does all the planting of the vineyard, which in addition to Cabernet Sauvignon also includes Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and a little bit of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.
