Winemaker David Bellows discusses the three clones of Pinot Noir grown on the Vidon Vineyard Estate with Austin Beeman.

Owned & operated by Don & Vicki Hagge since 1999, Vidon Vineyard is a LIVE certified sustainable vineyard and winery located in the countryside of Newberg, Oregon. They are situated in the Chehalem Mountains AVA at an elevation between 400 and 500 feet facing south towards the Red Hills of Dundee. Don and Vicki Hagge purchased the land in 1999, planted the vines, harvest the fruit, make the wine  and sell it out of the winery. They believe winemaking begins in the vineyard and are proud of the Oregon wines that this Chehalem Mountains vineyard produces on an annual basis.

Notre Dame de Paris.

The famous cathedral in Paris, France was severe damaged a few days ago by fire.

While there was a fire in the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris, I thought of how many times I had enjoyed visiting it during my travels to Paris.

Here is a tribute video using video footage taken during a 2010 trip to Paris and photographs taken in 2001 and 2015.
