Welcome to Vintage Albuquerque!
Now in its 22nd year, Vintage Albuquerque, LLC is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting arts education for youth in New Mexico. One of the state’s premier art and culinary events, Vintage Albuquerque’s June Wine Week showcases the talents of local artists and restaurateurs alongside wineries and winemakers from top wine-producing regions around the world. Since its inception, the annual four-night series of events has donated more than $3 million to arts education in the Albuquerque area.
This year, the festivities will take place June 19 - 22. Mark your calendars! This year is sure to be the best yet.
Harry Peterson-Nedry is the founder, winemaker, and managing partner of Chehalem, one of Oregon’s premier wineries.
In 1990, Harry founded Chehalem, and his hands-on approach to winemaking began. Within five years, he had expanded the winery’s estate holdings to include partnerships in Corral Creek Vineyards (adjacent to the winery) and Stoller Vineyards in the southern Dundee Hills, developed by his Chehalem partners, Bill and Cathy Stoller.
Harry's interest in the wine industry extends far beyond the wines of Chehalem. He has been appointed to and is now serving a second term on the Oregon Wine Board by Governor Kulongoski and serves on the board of WineAmerica (formerly the American Vintners Association), the national trade association for America’s wineries. He also has represented Oregon at the International Pinot Gris Symposium in Germany and has worked to establish Oregon Pinot Camp, ORCA (the Oregon Chardonnay Alliance), Willamette Valley AVAs (authoring the Ribbon Ridge petition), and to raise Riesling awareness. His passionate reach continues to extend into family, environmental conservation, and the arts.
For the fifth consecutive year Chef/Owner Cathy Whims has been nominated by the James Beard Foundation for Best Chef: Northwest. Says Chef Whims of the honor; “It is so exciting to be in the Avery Fisher Hall with the most amazing chefs and so many generous people. Its so validating.”
