Stringer’s Wild Plum Winery of New Pine Creek recently introduced a new gin, which has so far garnered a bronze medal in the 2011 West Coast Wine Competition, and is in the running for an additional award. The winery’s plum brandy also took the silver medal at the 2008 and 2009 California State Fair. Stringer’s Wild Plum Winery is located just south of the Oregon/California border on the east side of US 395. Stringer’s wines are available in Lakeview through Stewart’s Marketeria and Lakeview Lockers. Stringer is working to introduce his newer products by this next spring once necessary approval from the Oregon Liquor Control Board comes through.
