Welcome Our Newest Artist at The Vineyard Tasting Room!

February 2, 2016

Our February artist feature at the vineyard is a husband & wife photography duo, Doug Farrell & Cheryl Cook. They are new to Cliff Creek Cellars & new to Oregon. We hope you’ll help us welcome them to the Cliff Creek family!

Their beautiful photography will be on display (and for sale) in the main tasting room & our grape barn for the entire month of February.
Come out for a tasting & enjoy the art anytime!

A little bit about the artists:

Doug, along with his wife Cheryl spent the summer touring Oregon last summer.
Doug says, “we were so impressed with the attractions here and quickly realized that as amateur nature photographers the possibilities are endless so we decided to move to southern Oregon from the Austin Texas area.”
Since retiring in 2008 they have traveled to many national parks and other locations capturing photographs that they would like to share.
They hope you enjoy them.
