What do you do at Lieb Cellars?

I'm the official cheese taster at Oregon Road. Wait, no, that isn't it. Oh! I work in the tasting room on weekends, and a couple days a week I get to run around taking pretty pictures for our social media and blog.

On the tasting room front, we’ve officially entered the “on” season.  Long sunny days, lots of visitors, great energy and a solid group of enthusiastic and knowledgeable tasting room staffers excited...
