Travessia is a small urban winery in downtown New Bedford, Massachusetts. We focus on making quality wines with Massachusetts-grown grapes. Throughout 2010 will be releasing some of our 2008 vintage wines... UnOaked Chardonnay, Vidal Blanc, Pinot Grigio and "Bastard Rosé". Travessia wines are an authentic reflection of what nature provides to us each year. We love to experiment and push the boundaries but our wines are also made with simplicity.
The name Oreana comes from the grand ranching days of California’s Central Coast. Oreana is a term used by cattle ranchers for an unbranded calf that strays onto your property and is therefore yours to keep. Think of it as found treasure or the renegade spirit of this beautiful region and the wines we produce here. Oreana Winery is known for two things - great wines and fabulous parties. From small batches of Pinot Noir to our sizeable Red Table Wine, Oreana has a wine for everyone. Current production is about 10,000 cases but some lots are as small as 20 cases. Our award winning Pinot program and Sparkling wines continue to generate rave reviews from Wine Spectator, the Wall Street Journal and Wine Enthusiast. We are never too busy to have a good time and all that time spent listening to the grape press and waiting for wine to age gives us lots of opportunities to come up with weird ideas for parties. Previous celebrations have included: Cinema in the Cellar featuring Jaws & King Kong, an Evening of Sea Shanty talent show, The Beaver Moon Harvest Party, the annual RocktoberFest concert series, Weiners & Wine Hot Dog extravaganza, and one time when a guy just played the bagpipes. It was standing room only…
