Winemaker's Notes "Patty was an extraordinary person... In attempting to create a wine that encapsulated Patty as a person, I spent a long time thinking about how to present this wine. It is not about the taste, weight, balance, or aromatics but rather the emotion associated with it. I sat there for a long time thinking about Patty and how I have felt since her passing, and finally settled on how I would like people to feel about this wine when enjoying it over the coming years. I think I found the right thing after nearly two years of missing her: Hopeful. "Hopeful" is what I want this wine to evoke. I want you all to feel hopeful when you taste it, drink it, cellar it, or give it to a friend or loved one. It is one of the most important characteristics I think about when I consider who Patty was and what she offered to other people in a variety of different ways... My wish is that this wine, from her final vintage, will be something you can take with you and that you can enjoy at times when things are going great, or when a major event in your life transpires, or when you need to tell someone you love them, or just to remember and honor Patty. Obviously, the decision to make this wine to pay tribute to Patty was an easy one, but figuring out what this wine was going to be was, at first, a bit of a puzzle. It's easy to say "best barrels from the best vineyards" but that wasn't exactly the way she went about things. Ultimately, we simply decided to start tasting through the cellar and that we would simply know a "Patty barrel" when we tasted one. That was exactly her style. We arrived at somewhere between 25-30 of those barrels scattered throughout the vineyards in the cellar. We ended up choosing a blend of 25 barrels as a way to signify the 25 vintages she had run wineries in the northern Willamette Valley from 1993-2017. Likewise, we settled on a bottle price of $62 which was the age she had just turned when she passed." - Jim Anderson, Patricia Green Cellars

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
