Crowley Wines at The Kitchen at Middleground Farms

To celebrate Oregon Wine Month, we are so excited to share our kitchen with Crowley Wines‘ Melanie Cooper and Evan Roberts.

Melanie Copper • Marketing & Production

Melanie Cooper, Marketing & Production

Melanie fell in love with winemaking during her time working for Kunin Wines in Santa Barbara County. Born and raised in Northern California, she moved to Portland in 2019 to explore a new wine region and work her second vintage with Antica Terra where she was able to work with both Willamette Valley and Santa Barbara County fruit. Between vintages, she furthered her knowledge of the wine trade by helping run a small wine shop and familiarizing herself with the Portland market. This is where she first encountered Crowley Wines and met Tyson. She started the 2020 vintage with Rhys Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains, followed by working harvest with Domaine Roy in the Willamette Valley. After experiencing an intimate tie between land and winemaking with Roy and their estate vineyard Iron Filbert, Melanie looked to join a small brand with an emphasis on expression of place and making soulful wine built for enjoyment. She finally landed with Crowley in the spring of 2021 just in time to help us roll out our new branding. Melanie can be found working in the cellar, hosting tastings, and delivering around town.

Evan Roberts • Crowley Wines

Evan Roberts, Partner/Owner, Wholesale Sale for Oregon & Fun Generator

Evan Roberts joined Crowley Wines in 2008 and provides tireless support and enthusiasm for the wines we make and the Crowley brand. As a business partner, his insight and guidance are critical to Crowley’s development and his unique perspective and passion hold a special place within the company.

Evan manages sales in the Oregon market. Look for him out on the town pouring Crowley with that infectious smile of his.

More About Crowley Wines

Crowley Wines was founded in 2005 with a focus on transparent, terroir-driven winemaking. Starting at the source, we favor older clones of Chardonnay Wente and Draper and the classic Wadenswil and Pommard Pinot noir clones due to their late-ripening nature and acid retention.

We work with family-owned vineyards and prefer cooler, high elevation sites. Our friends and growers are committed to non-irrigated and low-impact farming. We are members of the Deep Roots Coalition and our primary vineyard sources are LIVE certified or certified organic. In the winery, our highest priority is to create the most direct evidence of both vintage and place while making elegant and exciting wines. This means (wine geek alert!) minimal acid additions, no extraction enzyme, employing native yeasts, extended aging in mostly neutral oak, and minimal fining or filtration. We value purity of expression over stylized wines and hold essential the belief that we cannot improve on nature.

The Menu & Pairings

Chefs Jessica & Kate will walk through a demonstration cooking class featuring a four-course seasonal menu where we share the tips and tricks to creating a beautifully paired menu.

Jean, our Curator of Wine & Experiences, will educate you on the individual pairings with each course.
