KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @Ch24Vineyards What inspired you and Louis-Michel Liger-Belair to collaborate on Chapter 24 Vineyards?#SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A. @KeeperColl I thought Louis-Michel Liger-Belair wines held the promise of changing the texture & weight of #ORpinot. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. fr shy #SommChat peep How many years has the @Ch24vineyards been in existence & what changes if any do you see ahead?

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A. @KeeperColl Our first #vintage was 2012. I expect in the next yr or 2, to plant our own estate #vineyard & build a #winery. #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass Q. @Ch24vineyards Are the grapes for the The Flood and The Fire sourced from the Chehalem Mountains AVA - loess vs volcanic #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A. @winecompass Actually, we have grapes from both volcanic & sedimentary soils from Chehalem Mtn depending on elevation. #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass @Ch24vineyards That's what I thought - learned recently how diverse the soil is in the Chehalem Mtns #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. fr shy #SommChat peep what has been the biggest surprise in your #oregon wine project?

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards @KeeperColl Getting fired from Eveningland. #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Q @Ch24vineyards Do you own vineyards or purchase fruit? Or both? If own vineyards do you also sell fruit? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @SandyWasserman We lease some #vineyards that we farm & we purchase fruit. We don't own anything & we don't sell any fruit. #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @SandyWasserman We expect this will change in 2015. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl How often does Louis-Michel Liger Belair come from #Burgundy to #Oregon to @Ch24Vineyards & what roles does he play? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl fermentation protocols & pressing decisions. #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Q. @Ch24vineyards How has the 2014 harvest been? Any predictions you can make? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @SandyWasserman Yields are high, sugars are high, acids are high, all in all could be magical (and profitable). #SommChat

Charles Comm PR ‏@CharlesComm Q. @Ch24vineyards Love the Fire/Flood nods to soils in your wine names. What do Chapter 24 & "Last Chapter" refer to? #SommChat @KeeperColl

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @CharlesComm @KeeperColl Chapter 24 is the last ch of the Odyssey, the most important book to me. All about women & monsters. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @Ch24Vineyards What makes #Oregon #Wine so unique? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl The ability to get fully ripe grapes without dangerously high sugars. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. fr shy #SommChat peep do you see you adding any other international #Winemakers to @Ch24vineyards why or why not

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl No...why, do you have someone in mind? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @Ch24Vineyards How would you describe your “The Last Chapter” #Wine? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl #Silky, #sexy, and rich without weight. #SommChat

Devon Broglie, MS ‏@dbrogues Hi @Ch24vineyards . In which specific AVA would you most like to purchase/build? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @dbrogues Eola-Amity Hills AVA or the Coast range. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q from #SommChat peep - do you have any plans to have #wines in other places other than #oregon? @Ch24vineyards

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl Not sure yet. Depends on where we get our #vineyard site & find the spot that inspires our architect. #SommChat

June Rodil ‏@JuneRodil .@Ch24vineyards @KeeperColl I hear that it's going to be a big harvest! Can you expound on what makes this so? #SommChat Hi, Mark!

June Rodil ‏@JuneRodil .@Ch24vineyards @KeeperColl ...also asking cause I saw a bit of dropped fruit on your Instagram feed a while back. #sacrifice #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @JuneRodil Hi June!! Yields were up thanks to the very warm summer & very low disease pressure due to lack of rain. #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @JuneRodil @KeeperColl We dropped far less fruit than we have in the past 2 yrs. LM feels that in the US...#SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @JuneRodil @KeeperColl we should allow higher yields. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @Ch24Vineyards What are some things U hope participants will learn about the #Terroir & #Wine of #Oregon at 2014 #TX #WineRide? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl That rock & river soils are likely the most important factor in the texture, flavor & emotion in a glass of #ORwine. #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass @Ch24vineyards What characteristics do the rock and sediment soil impart into the wine? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @winecompass Rock = red fruit. River = blue fruit. #ORwine #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #SommChat peep - why did you choose #Oregon?

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl I think the grapes in #OR present the most likely opportunity to find the #delicious balance between sugar & acid. #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass Q. @Ch24vineyards Do you plan on working with other grape varieties other than Pinot Noir? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @winecompass No. No. No. #SommChat

Jason Hisaw ‏@JRHisaw @Ch24vineyards @KeeperColl What specific Ch24 wine are you enjoying the most and why specifically that wine? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @JRHisaw @KeeperColl Last Chapter 2012 because it almost always puts Judy (Tarlov) in the right mood. #SommChat

Harley Carbery ‏@harleywine1 @KeeperColl @Ch24vineyards a little late but hello from #Vegas #SommChat

Harley Carbery ‏@harleywine1 @Ch24vineyards what to you is the most unique aspect of Oregon wines? @KeeperColl #wine #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @harleywine1 Our ability to allow the grapes get fully ripe on a phenolic basis w/out insane sugar accumulation. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #SommChat peep - why does @Ch24vineyards go to #Burgundy multiple times a year?

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl Food is good, the #wine is great & we taste the #Oregon #wines w/LM on each trip. Wouldn't you go 4x if you could? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl But the latter 2 trips always depend on #harvest in #Burgundy which takes precedence. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Keep your #SommChat questions on #oregon #wine coming to @Ch24vineyards

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @Ch24Vineyards love UR stance about the act of drinking animating #wine. What do U enjoy about the experience of drinking wine? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl How it affects the atmosphere & the emotional current around the table. #SommChat #wine

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Ch24vineyards can you tell us about your US #winemaker and what role does he play? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl Mike Etzel Jr. in '12 & '13 & @maxchapter in '14 were responsible for executing LM's unique fermentation process...#SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl himself to the Double Zero project. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #SommChat peep - do you have plans do add other Pinot #wines to the current list? @Ch24vineyards

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl Yes; in 2013 we made a luxury #cuvee called the Arrow & in 2014 expect to add another #wine called the Rose. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #SommChat peep: does Louis Michel feel there R any similarities in the #Oregon #wines to #burgundy #wines & if so what? @Ch24vineyards

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl The broad A to the Q is no. #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @KeeperColl The focused A is maybe...but really can't be addressed in 140 characters. #SommChat

June Rodil ‏@JuneRodil @Ch24vineyards @KeeperColl I also saw those crazy Italian amphoras you got. What are your plans for those? #SommChat

Chapter 24 Vineyards ‏@Ch24vineyards A @JuneRodil That is Mikey's Double Zero project which he expanded after we made 2 barrels in this way the last 2 yrs at CH24. #SommChat

June Rodil ‏@JuneRodil .@Ch24vineyards @KeeperColl He's fancy. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl RT @yrmom_safoodie: @JuneRodil @Ch24vineyards @KeeperColl can we expect to see a few more such projects #winerytoys #SommChat
