Putting the Best Wines in the Bottle

The pursuit of excellence drives our work at 2Hawk. In the winery this time of year, we’re focused on bottling. That means finishing our early-to-bottle white wines from the previous vintage—in this case, 2017—our middle-length barrel-aged reds from 2016, and our final red from 2015. The red wines were blended and returned to barrel over a year ago, so the aromas and flavors have integrated. They are ready for bottling.

Best Holiday Wine Pairings?

Another harvest is over. All of the new wines are in barrel, and it’s time to reflect on how the vintage has taken shape and to give thanks for what Mother Nature provided. One of the most frequent questions I’m asked this time of year is, “What wine pairs well with a special holiday meal?”

2Hawk Becomes First Winery in Southern Oregon and First Business in Medford to Install Tesla Charging Stations

At 2Hawk, we are always looking to lead the way in sustainable practices and enhance our guests’ experience. Installing three Tesla charging stations does both. I got the idea while making my regular monthly trip back and forth to Coalinga, Calif., where we have 1,000 acres of pistachio nut trees and 400 acres of almonds. Each time, I drive past Harris Ranch, a traveler’s oasis along I-5 in the Central Valley. It’s got an airport, restaurants, hotel and conference center, country store, and gas station complete with Tesla charging stations.
