I've been wanting to get out to this winery for quite a while. When an article in the local newspaper announced that Calaboose is now brewing beer, we decided it was time to go. We had been to another local winery a few years back, but I really didn't care for their wine -- too sweet and heavy for my preference. I was concerned that the Calaboose wines would be the same. I was so wrong! After the tasting, we brought home the Catawba, as well as the strawberry rhubarb wine (purchased several bottles to take to relatives we visited a couple weeks later). The strawberry rhubarb is seasonal, very light and perfect to drink while sitting on a deck! We then sampled the 3 beers and decided to purchase one brewed with cardemom and citrus. Nice, light, summery taste. We have a growler from another brewery (an hour's drive from Calaboose), and the owner filled it. The owners are in the forefront of getting this region recognized as a vivicultural area.
