SALUD! - OREGON'S PREMIERE PINOT NOIR AUCTION

About the 2009 ¡Salud! Pinot Noir Cuvée: ArborBrook is part of the ¡Salud! Vintners Circle, a select group of the top 42 Oregon Pinot Noir producers, each of whom donate their time, resources, and talents to create a one-of-a-kind ¡Salud! Pinot Noir Cuvée. These limited edition Pinot Noirs will be sold exclusively at the ¡Salud! Auction and will not be available anywhere else. Only five cases of each rare offering will be bottled. Together they represent the very best of the 2009 vintage.
About ¡Salud!: ¡Salud! was created to address the healthcare needs of these individuals who are so integral to the winegrowing process. The Oregon wine industry depends on a seasonal workforce to create its sought-after wines. However, due to their temporary employment status, these workers often cannot meet their basic heathcare needs.
All of the funds generated at this remarkable two-day event allow ¡Salud!'s bilingual/bicultural nurses and healthcare educators to work in partnership with regional health and medical organizations to offer screenings, immunizations and personalized navigation through the complex healthcare system for this vital workforce.
We are asking you to join us in the vital mission to help support these workers, without whom our wines could not be made. Please bid on a case or two of our exclusive ¡Salud! Cuvée. If you're unable to attend the auction, we encourage you to submit a sealed bid through the ¡Salud! Office (503.681.1850). They'll ensure your bid is placed, even if you're not there! You may also purchase tickets or place sealed bids by visiting the ¡Salud! website.
