Lieb Behind the Scenes – September 2020

September 22, 2020
Harvest started last week. Our industry was thrown for a major loop this year, but there’s comfort in knowing that the things I’ve come to count on every year around this time can still be counted on: harvest will come, Jared will smile when I tell him to bring out...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – June 2020

June 23, 2020
I just looked back at my March blog post. It was 3 months ago but feels like a lifetime. I’m not going to sugar coat it. These past few months for our business, our employees and our families have been rough, mentally and physically. The low was probably the day...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – March 2020

March 26, 2020
Woah, guys. I thought about not writing my blog at all this quarter. I mean, what can I possibly say right now? Does what's happening "behind the scenes" at Lieb even matter? Can I offer any words that will be at all helpful or insightful? No. This crisis is so...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – December 2019

December 17, 2019
  How are we wrapping up another year already!? My sixth year at Lieb Cellars, in fact. And when I sit back and reflect on these past years, I think it’s fair to call 2019 the “year of the curveball” at Lieb Cellars. 2013 was my first year and was...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – September 2019

September 25, 2019
Guys, I’m wearing a sweater and drinking hot coffee in the office right now, and I LOVE IT. Welcome back Fall! We’ve missed you on the North Fork. Fall is always a bitter-sweet season for me, though. “Sweet” because of the crisp, refreshing weather, beautiful sunsets, fall foliage, my gloriously...

June 6, 2019
Lieb Behind the Scenes – June 2019 HOW IS IT SUMMER? Well, unofficially at least. I think what’s throwing me off is how cool it’s been. High 60’s and low humidity are my jam but certainly not the beach and BBQ weather I expect in June. Regardless, it’s here. And...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – March 2019

March 15, 2019
Hey all, Spring! Well it’s not officially here but it is in my mind. The next month or so I’ll step out of my house in the morning with a light jacket and refuse to turn around to swap it out for a winter coat despite immediately realizing it’s still...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – December 2018

December 19, 2018
Hey all, We made it! This whirlwind of a year at Lieb Cellars is only a few days from coming to a close. And as I sit here trying to reflect on the past 12 months, my mind keeps wandering to the 12 months ahead. 2018 has been banner year,...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – September 2018

September 26, 2018
Hey all, Harvest is here! It marks my 6th at Lieb Cellars. Yesterday my husband and I brought our two daughters, Renny who is 4 and Gabi who is 2, out to the vineyard to help our crew pick Sauvignon Blanc grapes. They pretended to drive the tractors, played with...

Lieb Behind The Scenes – June 2018

June 21, 2018
Hey hey guys! It’s been 3 months since I sat down to write a blog post and WHERE DO I BEGIN. Whirlwind and insomnia are the two words that immediately come to mind when I think about this year thus far. Whirlwind because we’ve seen a boom in media attention...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – March 2018

March 16, 2018
Hey guys! I was hoping to write this blog post last week but then came down with a horrendous flu.  I then tried to write it on Tuesday but we got hit with our 3rd Nor’easter in two weeks, so I was stuck at home for 12 hours with two...

Lieb Behind The Scenes – January  2018 Hey all, happy 2018! This new year is especially happy for us here at Lieb because we have A LOT in store. In my last post, I reviewed what I learned while working as a harvest intern at our winery.  Since then, we...

Lieb Behind the Scenes: October 2017 (Harvest Edition)

October 19, 2017
  Hey ya’ll!  Because we’re right smack in the middle of harvest and I’m now a month into my harvest internship at our winery, I think I’ll dedicate this blog post to what I’ve learned thus far from my time spent “working harvest”. To give context, yes, I’ve worked though...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – August 2017

August 24, 2017
And just like that, we’re about to kick off harvest.  When I last posted in June, bud break (the start of the vineyard growing season) was only a month behind us and we were just entering the full summer swing.  Our tasting rooms were bustling with summer visitors and our...

Lieb Behind the Scenes: June 2017

June 16, 2017
    Hi ya’all!  Happy summer!  The last time I posted in April, we were just kicking off the year – releasing new wines, ramping up wholesale, getting the tasting rooms MDW-ready and conducting some good ol’ R&D for canned wine.  Welp, a lot has happened in 2 months. On...

  Hey guys! Wow… and just like that it’s been another 2 months since I last posted. It’s APRIL already!? This is my 4th year at Lieb and I can tell you that the first 3 months of this year flew by faster than any previous year. It’s like I...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – Jan-Feb 2017

February 13, 2017
  Whew.  Just like that, a month and a half has passed since my last blog post.  They say time flies when you’re having fun.  That’s certainly been the case.  Well, having fun and getting sh*t done! In past posts, I’ve referred to Feb and Mar as “bottling season.”  This...

Lieb Behind The Scenes – December 2016: Looking Back & Ahead to 2017 Last blog post of the year for me, and I’m feeling … boy, a lot of things. Our business was up 16% overall this year. For a company that’s 2 years into a re-brand and operating in...

  Lieb Behind the Scenes - November 2016 Ahh fall on Oregon Road. Shorter, quieter days. Stunning deep red sunsets. Cool, crisp winds coming off of the sound. Team Lieb dressed in our unofficial fall uniform – boots, jeans and flannels – pouring a whole lotta Cabernet Franc. While I...
